Interview, yellow CotHS

Check out this interview with Stephin Merritt from Music Radar. They mostly discuss gear from his extensive studio, though there's some talk about 50 Song Memoir as well.  As always, it's interesting to hear about Mr. Merritt's process in the studio, and he seems downright pleased to talk about it here.

  1. Loved the interview, glad you saw it! Interestingly, the number of songs that existed before 2015 continues to grow. How cool would it be if he eventually reveals that he wrote the whole record before 1991? And that his whole career has been based around adhering to it? I don't know, it's a theory!

  2. Thanks for spotting this one! I'm not a gearhead but I love learning about the process.
