What do you reckon you'd be doing if you weren't making excellent music?
thanks laura! i would probably be angrily teaching english in a boring city somewhere and dreaming about making music. i can't imagine not being in this particular band, much less not being able to do it at all. i am sure i would be lost and extremely grumpy without it.
What's your guilty listening pleasure?
a few possibly "unhip" things that i do not feel guilty about loving would be kenny loggins, 90's RnB like silk, tony toni tone, tevin campbell, boys 2 men, or jodeci, elvis costello and burt bacharach collaborations, live grateful dead, the rascals (from the sixties), rod stewart, jethro tull, george benson, larry graham, chico magnetic band, the doors, weird al yankovich, steve miller band, yoko ono, frank zappa, led zeppelin, tiny tim, tay zonday, lil' troy, the spin doctors, reef, soundgarden, the monkees, eric clapton, yes, the cult, animal collective, the doobie brothers, thin lizzy, jesus jones, tower of power, squeeze, culture club, bootsy collins, oingo boingo, donavan, 80's chick corea, u2, tripping daisy, bon iver, justin timberlake, pat metheny, kiss, james taylor, return to forever, the time, weather report, george thorogood, bob seger, ac/dc, and snow. (informer, you no say daddy me snow me i'll go blame.) still jams. the list goes on and on...
Craziest thing that's happened on tour?
we don't really ever get wild on tour. we get into it quite a bit more when we are at home. we are pretty cautious travelers these days.
Favourite gig you've played?
every gig that we get to do in the u.k. is our favorite gig. we can't wait to go back. we are missing it terribly.
And finally, what's next for White Denim, what're your plans?
we are mixing two records this month and into early next month. hopefully they will both get released sometime. we are enjoying our work at the moment. u.s. west coast tour in late october. pumped.
What can I say, we are great here, GREAT britain. So let's hope White Denim come over again soon.
Look at this.
