The radio interview to which I linked the other day can be heard here. The interviewer seems legitimately interested in Mr. Merritt's music, making for a pretty good interview, all-in-all. In it, Mr. Merritt confirms that both Johnny Blood and Daniel Handler will be performing the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea score with him this May 4th, a particularly cool bit of information.
the official Strange Powers website. So, go there, and donate money to the film's creators to ensure its maximum screen time.
Mr. Merritt continues to baffle in the denigration of his voice in this interview. There are also some interesting remarks about the relationship between Distortion and Realism.
There's also this sort of awkward interview that still manages to put forth lots of interesting information despite its awkwardness. Stephin harps on the influences for Get Lost, reveals his plans to listen to a terrible band simply because of their band name, and says some awesome things about the setlist for the upcoming tour that have this author all sorts of excited. Anybody have any guesses as to about which songs from 69 Love Songs he's talking? My guesses are "Papa Was a Rodeo" and "Book of Love."
