This interview was conducted in 2018 when I met Rockabul´s director Travis Beard at the Inferno Festival in Norway where the film was screened. The interview remained unpublished since then, but with the current events in Afghanistan it feels right to publish it now - to give an insight into not only the creation of the documentary, but also a glimpse into the dreams and struggles of the Afghan people - who want to shape their own lives - Espen J. Jörgensen It's hard to find

This time they're all moody and brooding, with Mike Patton whispering all but the chorus while a children's box plinks away in the background. Even their crap stuff is interesting at the very least, but this is a sultry late night summer classic. Brilliant." - Kerrang! | 1997 "The toy piano idea basicall
