Then and Now: The Presets 00:00

Words by Cameron Higgins

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Ten years ago, Peter “Dad” Maiden interviewed that OG Aussie techno band, The Presets when they stopped in New York City. Not much more than ten days ago, Peter’s spiritual heir, Barron Hanson, interviewed The Presets in the exact same spot.  

A decade apart, two Convicts and one band discuss things under the bed, accepting each other, warts and all, and maintaining creative excitement. The interviews are freakishly similar. This time-bending mash-up will have you wondering where the years went.
