Thanks. To you and Vampire Weekend.
bloody brilliant. Feels like a long time since Wolfgang Amadeus and I hadn't anywhere near expected to adore Bankrupt! as much as I do. The second side in particular is gold.
Cool interview. Brought back the pangs of sadness about MCA, nice to think he had even a small something to do with this record.
You came across so badly with your cringeworthy hopefully faux-"it's moral ouuuutraaaage" schtick.
They're undoubtedly interesting topics, but your pursued them too vehemently, particularly again with the blaaaaady knives, and it was actively a relief when they turned round that intercut during the Nazi question on you.
They had been brief and perhaps somewhat difficult (I'm not particularly a fan of the band, but they're renowned for this) but opportunities for interesting discussion were ultimately lost. For instance: the influences question fell on its face (not really your fault for a change), so maybe in future suggest bands or artists for them to react to, or just react to their answers rather than reading off your sheet, and later on the topic of the creation, dissemination and meaning of symbols in culture and music which was raised had the potential to be really quite interesting, particularly as a chance for you to redeem yourself.
In short the group of barely post-teenage punks speaking outside of their first language were a hundred times more interesting and mature than yourself. Unless this is a character you're playing (in which case please stop), I'd suggest a rethink.
So organic, rich, jazzy, and wonderfully cohesive as an album that I'd made my through it twice last night without even realising. Absolutely captivating stuff from Mr Ellison.
