After a day of throwing up bile and generally wishing that I was dead, I’m actually starting to feel a little bit better. Well, good enough to let you know that the interview I conducted with Johnny Foreigner (aided by Miriam Baynes) is now up over at This is Fake DIY now. Now, I’ll stop postin about JoFo quite so much in the future.
And a sample:
What’s changed on your second album? Is it a similar sound?
A: It’s noisier but… a bit quieter? If you like our band, you’ll like it, but if you don’t, there’s nothing on there that’s going to ensnare you in. It doesn’t reveal any hidden facet of our personality, it was all pretty heart on stage to start with… It’s a bit weird when you see reviews and it’s like ‘this band hasn’t really progressed’. It shouldn’t be a conscious thing, you should be a band, and this is what you do. You shouldn’t have to think ‘oh, we’re going to get twenty percent more electro, but put a donk on that song’. I know it happens, but it seems like a very cynical way of going about it, I don’t know why we’d have to adhere to that. But maybe this album will bomb and we’ll have to go electro, so I might have to eat my words.
