First/Last – Ancient History

January 14, 2017

“The story of two old friends fighting in a strip-mall parking lot.”

Ancient History is an indie fuzz rock band from Pittsburgh who are dropping their sophomore release entitled Good Friend Electrical on Saturday night with a banging lineup featuring fellow Wild Kindness labelmates at The Funhouse at Mr. Smalls. with the first 150 through the door getting a complimentary copy. Much thanks to Donald Ducote (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • Aerosmith Get a Grip.
  • Your last album bought?
  • Pulp Different Class (found it on vinyl).
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • I ditched my high school graduation rehearsal to buy the Green Album by Weezer as soon as the record store doors opened. I waited a long time for that record and it was 25 minutes long and totally lackluster.
  • First concert attended?
  • Cheap Trick/Meatloaf (Bat Out of Hell II tour).
  • Last concert? (that wasn’t a local show?)
  • Death Grips in Chicago.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Beta Band/Radiohead (2 weeks after they released Amnesiac) but I’ve never danced as hard as did during Daft Punk’s 2005 Coachella performance.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • I saw Live open for Counting Crows and they covered “Imagine”… that was rough. Also, Kanye sucked live.
  • Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • The many nights spent drinking in the Allegheny cemetery at 4am with Angry Dan.

Thanks, Donald. Being the GM of Wild Kindness Records, I am betting your last local show was probably yesterday.
