Five Questions: Skyler Fell
May, 18, 2008
It’s time for another installment of “Five Questions” — our occasional interview series with notable personalities in the accordion world.Today, we’re talking to Skyler Fell, owner of the Accordion Apocalypse Repair Shop in San Francisco. A professionally trained accordion repairwoman, Skyler offers repairs, parts, lessons, and free advice out of her humble shop in Hunter’s Point. Accordion Apocalypse has become a Bay Area accordion hub, hosting bi-weekly jams and shows by touring bands and wild circuses. She also plays in a couple bands herself: the Hobo Gobbelins and the Accordion Apocalypse Circus Sideshow.When and why did you start playing the accordion?I started playing accordion when I was around 20 years old, after walking into Boaz Accordions in Berkeley. Feeling inspired by live circus bands featuring fierce and independent women with a hardcore edge in Europe and the Bay Area, I decided to have a go at the accordion. What has happened since has been a truly magical and eye-opening journey.You’ve studied accordion repair with a couple of masters — Boaz Rubin of the former Boaz Accordions in Berkeley and Vince Cirelli of Cirelli Accordion Service in SF. What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in working with them?Vince Cirelli and Boaz Rubin have both inspired me with an undying love for the accordion in all of its most complex beauty, as well as counseling me on the step-by-step procedures of well trusted traditional accordion repair techniques learned from past generations of great accordion masters. Now to be kept alive with the accordionistas of the future!What’s the weirdest repair/modification someone has asked you to do?Last week I modified a bass switch system on an Excelsior to have a switch setting that plays only low bass single notes. The accordion sounds great… it really growls!What are your top tips for keeping an accordion in good shape?Reduce damage and extend the life of your main squeeze with these simple tips!HOT environments will melt the wax that holds your reeds in place. Be careful not to leave your accordion in a hot vehicle trunk for hours or in direct sunlight. COLD, and DAMP environments create condensation that rusts reeds, ruins tuning, and rots bellows. Some taxing places for accordions include attics, basements, storage lockers, garages, vehicles, sheds, and outside for long periods of time. Play your accordion!TUNING and service cleaning is a good idea every 3 to 5 years for frequently played accordions in good condition.OLD BROKEN STRAPS could be the downfall of your beloved accordion. Make sure your straps are in good condition — especially around the strap brackets — and always carry the accordion by the body or in a padded carrying case.What advice do you have for someone just starting to play the accordion?Get ready to have some fun! Check out some accordion bands, get yourself a student instrument, some lessons and go. And check out my website — www.accordionapocalypse.com — for accordion events, sales, and repairs in the Bay Area.Thanks to Skyler for taking time to answer our questions. Stay tuned for more interviews with accordion aficionados from around the world!

Paste Promotes the Accordion Revolution
May, 9, 2008
Not sure how I missed this, but the April issue of Paste Magazine has a couple features on the accordion. The first, “Squeezebox Redux: The World’s Dorkiest Instrument Earns Hipster Cred”, notes the accordion’s recent rise to prominence in the indie rock world. One label head suggests that “the more bands that use accordions, the more [new] bands will be inspired to try it themselves.” DeVotchKa’s Tom Hagerman also has a good quote:“The accordion can quickly color a piece of music into a much darker or even grotesque sort of tune… I think in pop music it tends to make things sound a little anachronistic, in a good way.”Paste also published their “Ultimate Accordion Playlist”. The list is, again, indie rock-centric, and features a number of the bands we’ve covered here (They Might Be Giants, the Decemberists, Gogol Bordello, Arcade Fire, etc.). Any notable omissions?
Kimmo Pohjonen is One Crazy Dude
May, 9, 2008
As someone who comes from a long line of farmers, I’m no stranger to tractors and farm equipment. But I never thought of using their sounds in music, which is why I’m not a famous avant-garde musician like Finnish accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen. He toured four UK farms and recorded the sounds of tractors, milking machines, threshers, and more, so he could tweak, loop, and sample them with his MIDI accordion for his project, “Earth Machine Music.”“When you amplify and equalise those sounds, and you have a great PA, you can suddenly hear music and rhythms. I’m sure people who come to the concerts will be surprised at what great sounds they have. These are kind of forgotten sounds. Everybody knows them, and everybody knows accordion sounds, too - but not like this.”Next month, Pohjonen will revisit those farms for a series of concerts in which he’ll perform new music he has composed specifically for each venue. Local farmers will even “play along” with Pohjonen, firing up their tractors and machinery during the performance. There’s even a documentary film in the works. I wonder if it will spawn a whole new genre of agricultural accordionists…Update: I found a YouTube clip of Pohjonen discussing the project, as well as a piece in the Telegraph.
A Mad and Faithful DeVotchKa
May, 9, 2008
Of all the bands I’ve discovered while writing for Let’s Polka, DeVotchKa is quite possibly my favorite. We saw them at a club in San Francisco a couple years ago and were blown away — their unique brand of gypsy-mariachi rock was infectious and it’s hard to dislike any band that sports an accordionist/violinist, a drummer/trumpet player, a tuba player, and a wine-swigging lead singer. Two years later, after making a splash with their soundtrack to the Oscar-nominated Little Miss Sunshine, DeVotchKa does not disappoint with their new album, A Mad and Faithful Telling.It’s easy to get caught up in the novelty of DeVotchKa’s sound — the cinematic swells, the mariachi horns, the tinkling glockenspiels — but don’t overlook the rich songs bubbling under that melting pot’s surface. “Transliterator” balances frenzy and restraint beautifully, the shuffling “Head Honcho” carries you away, and “Undone” is just achingly stunning.We loved accordionist Tom Hagerman’s recent solo album, The Breakfast Playground, and — from his fierce violin on “Comrade Z” to his playful accordion on “Strizzalo” — he plays a huge role on this record. Other bands have helped put the accordion on the indie rock map in recent years, but few carry it as naturally or as well as DeVotchKa.Devotchka: Head Honchomp3
