Title: 11/11/09 - Interviews (Magazine Edition)


Jamie - November 11, 2009 12:12 AM (GMT)
So it's time for the long-promised 'interviews' update. Before we get into those, however, forum member Cibachrome Blue has spotted an extremely wise post by Thomas Dolby on his website, reviewing 'Let's Change the World' and giving us some background info on the struggle to get it produced. You can read it here.

Our first interview was sent in by Joe Costello, and comes from Q magazine, in December 1988. As ever, it's totally different from anything we've read before, and is a fascinating insight into the time when 'Jordan' was one of the unreleased projects we could be teased about...you can read it here, here, and here.

Miranda Diboll has sent in a short but witty interview from the London Metro magazine in 1999, which you can have a browse through here. J.P.M. Thursfield has provided a review of Jordan from the first issue of 'Vox' magazine, September 1990, viewable here, as well as a four-part interview from our old friends 'Mojo' in May 1997, revealing why Dolby didn't produce 'Andromeda', among other things. You can see that here, here, here, and then here.

I shall leave you to ponder those for a while, and return soon with three audio interviews that I've been sitting on (metaphorically) for a good few weeks.

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten! I have some other stuff to do first, but I will get to it. Audio interviews need some solid hours of work to get decently uploaded.

No...where do I find that?

Oh, probably! Who knows eh. But this is a hectic time of year, I can barely keep up with my emails...

At least they're in demand!

Rivermoving - December 17, 2009 09:29 PM (GMT)
Sure they're in demand, since nothing else of value is happening on the forum besides thrashing each other's pitiful opinons. ;)

There's always room for a little one,standing on the sidelines throwing brickbats is a lot worse than having the world know one's pitiful opinion,besides do we really need yet another interview discussing those unreleased albums. ;)
