Seems to be the longest magazine interview so far? An hour and a half non stop conversation for Rolling Stone Italy.
Time for a quick snap before John went back in presenting his show on Lyric FM. Gav played a selection of tunes ranging from Gustavo Santolalla off the Babel soundtrack to Klaus Nomi.
Gavin and Herbie winging it at the Gallery of Photography. Able, with just guitar and vocals, holds up well.
The artists formerly known as Prunes.
Mojo’s Martin Aston writes: “… torchy, mirror-ball beauty. These are his silkiest arrangements yet, but shadowy undercurrents ensure the tension never lets up.”
Uncut’s Stephen Trousse’s only reference point seems to be U2, but that’s alright since he writes: “Friday shamelessly rekindles the Eno/Lanois unforgettable shimmer, croons against the dying of the light, and somehow emerges defiantly alive.”
