Last week The Quietus kicked off a series of Fall features in anticipation of the release of their new album this spring, beginning with this 2007 interview with Mark E Smith about Hex Enduction Hour.
If this series is to be sort of a Fall-centric advent calendar, this is chocolate treat No. 1. Topics covered include heavy metal blokes, recording the album in a cave in Iceland, recording the rest of the album in an old cinema, being a layman rather than a musician, and watching indie bands on tv with subtitles on. It’s much more cheerful than the recommended reading on my other blog today.
