ALL BACK TO MY PLACE

GUYVILLE EX­ILE

Mojo (UK) - - Contents -

Liz Phair, Larry Heard and Vic­tor Wil­lis, Vil­lage Peo­ple law­man, bring the post-pub noise.

What mu­sic are you cur­rently groov­ing to? Sein­abo Sey’s new video for Breathe, Hinds, Al­dous Hard­ing, and Juliana Hat­field’s Olivia New­ton-John cov­ers.

What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite al­bum? Ex­ile On Main St. It’s the most nutri­tion­ally com­plete ban­quet of an al­bum. If you’ve ever won­dered what it would be like to be a rock star, you can just lis­ten to that al­bum and then you’ll pretty much have lived it.

What was the first record you ever bought? And where did you buy it? The first vinyl record I ever bought was an al­bum by Mad­ness. I mis­tak­enly thought it had Our House on it. I was in Vi­enna, on a trip with my par­ents. Ev­ery­body was wan­der­ing around an­other charm­ing cathe­dral. I dipped into a record shop to try and look cool, de­ter­mined to show up to lunch with a vinyl record in my bag. But man, was I dis­ap­pointed when I re­alised the sin­gle wasn’t on there. Which mu­si­cian, other than your­self, have you ever wanted to be? I think it would be fun to be in Me­tal­lica right now.

What do you sing in the shower? This morn­ing I sang John Mayer’s Daugh­ters to cleanse my­self from read­ing the dis­turb­ing de­tails in the Cosby ver­dict.

What is your favourite Satur­day night record? I’m not sure I play mu­sic on Satur­day nights. I leave the week­ends to the mil­len­ni­als. But if I want to bring up the en­ergy I might put on Par­quet Courts’ Hu­man Per­for­mance.

And your Sun­day morn­ing record? Some­thing like Nick Drake’s Pink Moon would be good, or Joanna New­som’s Ys. Maybe Lucinda Wil­liams’ Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. Sun­day mu­sic should trans­port you to an­other place in your mind.

Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th An­niver­sary Box Set is out now on Mata­dor.
