In the Crossing Border festival special of VPRO magazine, Thomas van Aalten (who, writing about catholic, says: “It’s the sort of album you wish Scott Walker or David Bowie would eventually make”) talks to Gavin Friday:
“Some 16 year olds listen to Leonard Cohen, don’t they? Eventually people will get fed up with cheap entertainment. I grew up with music as an ideology, almost a political statement.”
Time Table for Crossing Border The Hague. Gavin Friday headlines the Royal Stage between 11pm-midnight on Friday, November 18th.
Gavin Friday’s cover of U2’s The Fly, included on “AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered”, Q magazine’s compilation album of U2 covers. Available with this month’s issue of Q Magazine.
