VICE: J.G. Thirlwell interview

Suck on this, Squarehead! Check out my new interview with musical madman J.G. Thirlwell in Vice. I’ve been a rabid fanatic of Thirlwell’s crazed work ever since I bought my first Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel record as a kid, so this was a fun interview to do. What a trill to hear about all his many, many latest endeavors.

I think the best “New York” mood movie is the last story in CREEPSHOW when tyrannical E.G. Marshall gets eaten alive by cockroaches in his weird antiseptic penthouse. It really captures the flavor of the city more than MEAN STREETS or ANNIE HALL. Don’t you agree?

My first subject is Rob Cockerham of the ground-breaking Cockeyed.com. Hit the back button!
