Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Interviewed on KansasCity TV
BEHOLD: Marc Maron interviews J Mascis:
...on the Live Forever documentary. Savage tells Liam he has an "androgynous" quality, and them obviously has to explain to him what androgynous means. Cue a tightening of the Savage sphincter as Liam glares at him & says "Are yer sayin' I'm a bird like?"
It wasn't Jon Savage who did that interview. He is in the film though
A while since I saw it, for some reason I have Savage in my memory as the one who did it.
is just the guy who directed the film. Bit of a rubbish film actually. A real missed opportunity. I recommend reading John Harris' book instead
It's impossible not to cringe...
Not sure if he was taking the piss or if that's just what he's like
John Peel would have loved it.
is pretty awkward
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpQv8r7-AMA I like how he visibly can't stand Marc Riley.
and am totes having a Mojito for breakfast.
balls what were they called! have totally forgotten. someone knows what i'm talking about.
Awkward and brilliant. It'll be on youtube somewhere.
It's on Youtube which is blocked at work for me, but you guys can surely find it.
I remember Adam & Joe playing clips of LoudReed being interviewed by Lauren Laverne and he's clearly a bit in love with her.
Blur (particularly Dave Rowntree) come off as massive cunts here.
Many years later and he apologises: http://www.straight.com/music/blurs-dave-rowntree-offers-apologies-nardwuar-human-serviette
Also see the Henry Rollins / Nardwuar interviews.
I came here to mention that one. Such a painful interview.
The part about THAT video is the only contribution I've ever made to Wikipedia.
David Bowie & Shirley Bassey in a lift.
Never seen this before, it's fucking incredible stuff.
Love the way he's talking about Eno, Bowie's Berlin period, "sonic experimenters" etc, while all you can hear in the background is a piss-poor Supergrass tribute act. Jaw-dropping stuff.
then that's the one. I still remember the day after the video was uploaded, their label had it removed from youtube. The singer wrote a blog post on the band's myspace page a couple of weeks later or so apologising (he came off well in that post actually, so fair play). They never even got to release an album before they were dropped.
I beg your pardon?
They just seem so disinterested, and come off rather cuntish. Fair play to the interviewer for sticking with it. I'd have told them to go fuck themselves after the third or fourth question, they're obviously not arsed.
"And this is Colin Newman, who we've only just met..."
was The Beta Band being interviewed by Steve Lamacq. They were utterly vile to him. I went off them quite a bit.
revealing that even better than Eddie Mair interviewing Boris Johnson was Eddie Mair interviewing Sinead O'Connor. I urge you to watch it on iPlayer now.
was about as unbearable as it gets, his KEXP session was a masterclass in 'let's change the subject... and again...'
Steve Lamacq, likeable as he is, does seem to get the worst out of some people. Richey's 4 REAL, the Gallagher brothers live swearathon on Radio 1... REM were particularly cutting and brutal to him and Jo around the time of Monster eve though Radio 1 had commissioned a whole REM day for them. "Ask me another question, I've been doing this for weeks..."
Steve: ''Here they are in session at the world famous maida vale studios!''
Coutney Taylor: 'Is it? I've never heard of it?''
In fact there was an NME article with them where they come off really badly. I say came off, more that the article ended with the writer saying they were a bunch of twats.
He's interview with Clint Boon. Offers Jones out for a fight!
someone typed it up and posted it on here before.
He's a drunken wreak, has a go at the journalist, nearly starts a fight with Tim Wheeler from Ash and swings between angry and mauldlin in a sentence.
I never watch Tv. Never. Only gardening programmes. I don't like
'em, but it keeps me peaceful.
With all the posts underneath proclaiming him to be some sort of loveable rogue. He acts like a complete dick, but not in any remarkable way that makes it entertaining, just very sad.
I'm sorry, but that is pretty hilarious
"Why've you got a number 1 haircut, Ray?"
He was in a terrible state in the late 90s.
Ioaded: (Firmly) Fuck off.
The guy is clearly someone who has been in need of psychiatric help for many a year. Anyone that celebrates any of his behaviour is a nob.
What a sad mess.
I love that the interviewers obviously haven't heard of Bonnie Prince Charlie so don't get the reference when he explains his name.
"I'm a pretty dark person..."
always makes me smile. Quite an interesting 'meeting of minds'.
nick cave basically disagrees with everything zane lowe says.
not a bad policy.
finishes by saying "interviews are hugely counterproductive"
Its really not that bad. I mean, he more is just saying stuff at them rather than asking questions but its hardly incendiary stuff
but there's a horrible Bobby Gillespie interview from around the time of 'Give out...' where he's so smacked off his eyeballs that he can't understand what the interviewer is saying and just ends up babbling like a toddler before giving up.
the obvious one of Serge Gainsbourg and Whitney Houston on French TV in the 80s?
Amusing from the point of view of Allen handing a clearly crestfallen & not used to criticism Keating his soppy arse on a plate by pointing out he doesn't have an ounce of credibility with anyone who isn't a teenage girl, hilariously ironic as Allen was in Fat Les & still dining out on 90's BritLAD associations at the time.
felt like smacking him
I remember watching this at the time and thinking that Ross and his audience were exceedingly dumb and annoying. I just wished they would shut up and let Charlie speak....it gets slightly better towards the end. Charlie's suit and general demeanour showed Ross up for the buffoon he is, despite his probable good intentions in getting Charlie Watts on TV in the first place
Absolutely off his fucking napper.
