    Thoroughly annoying title aside, very good interview with (mainly) Win for the Telegraph:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/m...tionaries.html

    “A lot of people get really stuck in this idea that everything’s been done, and there’s nowhere left to go,” says Butler. “Rock ’n’ roll is almost the most conservative form of performance art: you play your guitar, these are the moves, this is what the songs are about, and this is the energy.

    I always felt like there’s so many sounds to make and things to talk about in songs. There’s more to life than 'I love you baby, la, la, la’.

    I approach it more like film-making: you would never say every film has been made. You just tell another story. I thought I would try and talk directly about common experiences that aren’t that cool to talk about, which is the starting place for a lot of the art we do.”

    Awww.



    And, just while I'm at it, from when they met on the set of Jools Holland. Mavis was bopping along to AFs performance, and it was all quite sweet.

    Nice, interview with Richard pre-Electric Picnic, even if/because he's a little excessively complimentary about Irish crowds.

    http://entertainment.ie/Music/featur...ire/1/1631.htm

    You won the Best Album Grammy last year for The Suburbs. How do you, as a band, quantify an accolade like that? Is there a sense of satisfaction or does the whole thing just feel other-worldly and outside your control?

    I think it's a little more the latter. I always use this analogy, that it kind of feels that we robbed a bank a little bit. We robbed the popular music bank.

    And you're just waiting to be caught?


    A little bit, yeah. What felt like a triumph, besides winning that thing, was that because comparatively we're in the small leagues record sales-wise to the people that we were up against. We're not a mainstream radio band and we were up against Eminem who has sold 20 million records and we've sold not even a twentieth of that, so the triumph of it felt like 'anything was possible'. It was a David and Goliath kind of thing, the little indie band that could.

    To do anything like that against a much huger commercial force was, for us and for where we come from, a pretty big victory.
    AF's own VEVO account has started uploading some of their Jools Holland set. Wish they'd do something useful like the Grammy performances or the cracking Daily Show stuff, but there you go.

    L'awesome @arcadefiretube Joel is uploading their Bonnaroo set with vastly improved audio. Not sure where he got the other audio source, but the difference is considerable.

    Eric Kayne, I guess you'd call him their embedded photographer for the Suburbs stuff, is putting a few more photos on his own site that I haven't seen around elsewhere. Worth a look if you were curious about the sooper dooper deluxe edition, but not curious enough to uh, pay for it.

    This still cracks me up.

    I can tell the difference a lot from the previous. This was probably my favorite set of all time. Everything from the weather being perfect, to the people I was with, to the space of dorking out/dancing we had within our group of 10 or so, to the shit falling from the sky, just being at Bonnaroo to the amount of molly my mouth soaked up made it a flawless hour and a half.

    Also, here are a few pics I took from Outside Lands.

    Weirdly translated article suggesting that bits of the band were hanging out in this preposterously remote studio in Norway.

    http://translate.google.com/translat...%2F17823672%2F

    Also, forthcoming video for Sprawl II, according to Renata Morales:

    Also, somebody told me they should have "Don't Mess With Quebec" shirts for the Montréal shows, and likely in the online store after that. I know a few people were asking about them.

    Oh, there was an interview in some magazine a while ago that mentioned how, at one of their early Irish shows, Win accidentally knocked a girl right the fuck out. They brought her backstage afterwards. ("She was cool about it")

    Fun stuff.

    http://www.montrealgazette.com/enter...445/story.html

    Arcade Fire and Pop Montreal have once again shown a keen knack for unusual events and strange settings.

    The group’s lead vocalist, Win Butler, and Dexter John of DJ Sports Club have put together the festival’s first Pop vs. Jock Charity Basketball Game, which will take place Sept. 24 at the McGill University Sports Centre. Team Pop, which will include Butler, his brother Will and other musicians, will play against Team Jock, an all-star team of players from the McGill Redmen and Concordia Stingers. Guests are expected to include Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs and Chris Tomson of Vampire Weekend, plus surprise appearances.

    Arcade Fire’s multi-instrumentalist Regine Chassagne will play organ, and another of the group’s jacks-of-all-instruments, Richard Reed Parry, will premiere a bicycle symphony called Drones during the half-time show, which will also feature Kid Koala.

    Per Us Kids Know's Facebook page:

    According to RTÉ 2fm DJ Jenny Huston an Arcade Fire live dvd is coming out very soon. Probably filmed at Electric Picnic in Ireland. Exciting? Yes.

    Bits of it will prolly be from EP, but I'd doubt all of it will. They record pretty much everything.

    Speaking of Electric Picnic, Bono swung by to catch their show - http://twitpic.com/6g4t5w/full

    The Rock The Court thing was today, out of interest. Butler's team lost the final to Matt Bonner and company, after kicking the shit out of Paul Shirley's guys.
