Finding a PR spin is often a challenge for artists, particularly when people delve into experimental electronica. Here’s how Future Sound of London, erm, “sugar coats” their work, circa the early 90s:
On sampling: It’s a way of lying. “I’m wasn’t the girl screaming in the park. That wasn’t me … She did it. I took it.”
On copyright infringement: “I can’t help it. I’m receiving it.”
On musical evolution: “We’ve become everything I hated, which is a musician.”
On the art: “We’re some weird illness.”
And then he says the music will make you impotent. (There’s a good pitch.)
Strange; why do you never hear Bluegrass musicians talking like this?
