I realize this is the third post about Spencer Krug in the past week but if I could fill this blog's pages with only news about Mr. Krug and his bandmates, I probably would. Anyway, he was in SPIN magazine this week, being interviewed, which I think is kind of a big deal because at least at some point that was kind of a major music publication. Anyway, "To the Moon and Beyond" (lame title I know)
Best/worst quote: "I totally miss them," Krug says of his old bandmates. "Wolf Parade is like family. But it's like any relationship, they end for a reason and it's unhealthy to force them to stay in existence."
Best guest appearance by the immortal Dan Bejar: "His stamp is on any piece of music he touches, more than maybe anyone I've ever played with in a way that is both undeniable and selfless," explains fellow British Colombian Dan Bejar, a.k.a. Destroyer, who formed the knotty Swan Lake with Krug and Frog Eye's Carey Mercer. "I associate a song that is his as something that is not gonna get fucked with for no good reason."
Best shout-out to the fans: "Wolf Parade had a real built-in audience by the time we hit our third record," Krug says of his beloved indie rock band, which dissolved last summer. "There were some really loyal, amazing fans that followed us along. But the Moonface fanbase is starting from scratch. If it's ever going to come it has to be earned, which is good. It's the way it should be."
