|« Conversations at Pitchfork Festival: The Pains of Being Pure At Heart||Top Sellers: Grape Juice Records' Booth at Pitchfork »|
Interview Sun Jul 19 2009
The Black Lips closed out Saturday night with a searing set of rough and raw blues fueled garage rock. In person the band is sarcastic and entertaining, much like the stage antics their known for during a live show. The fine folks over at ReadyMade Magazine let me and the band crash their swanky display, as the guys expressed their dislike of festivals (love to play, hate to attend), memories of being chased out of India with their record label Vice, their sinister plan to take over and shut down the festival with their radical ways, and even give the festival itself a Pitchfork style rating.
Keep checking back for more conversations with artists all week at Pitchfork.
