The Awl interviews Mr. Merritt here. Most interestingly, perhaps, he discusses the 26-year-old history of "God Wants Us to Wait" and his many other song fragments. Knowing of these fragments' existence is frustrating, as all I want in the whole wide little world is to hear those fragments.
There's also this interview with The Londonist from a while back that I neglected to post until now. Single gay male Londoners: be on the lookout!
Lastly, there's this article about travel nannies for musicians on tour, with a particular emphasis on Ms. Claudia Gonson and her too-cute daughter Eve. Honestly, the article really does make me all the more appreciative that the band exists as a touring unit at all, and I'm certain there will be a day when that will no longer be the case. This is one of the many reasons I obsess about seeing them so many times when they do tour.
