Matt Kadi is many things – a drummer, a bassist, a photographer. Since he was a teenager, he has been an active member of the Punk scene, from his start playing drums in Monster Squad all the way through playing bass in his newest band Holehog. Along the way, he has also been a member of bands like Great Apes (Asian Man Records), Build Us Airplanes (Sell The Heart Records), Anne Ramsey, Know Secrets, and more, taking him all around the world in the process.
As a photographer, he has taken an active role in documenting the scene, which as we discuss in the episode, is such a vital and inspiring job to take on. Taking inspiration from the likes of Murray Bowles, Matt Kadi is rarely without his camera when he attends a live show, and he has taken his passion and turned it into a way to not only express himself artistically, but to supplement his income as well. He has collaborated with the likes of the legendary Winston Smith, which we chat about during the episode
We spend some time discussing his time in the bands he’s played, and go over some of the inspiration that led him to becoming a photographer. He tells me about the time he was in a VERY popular music video for a HUGE rock band, and of course we go over some bands he thinks you should have on your radar, and his Desert Island albums.
