Carl Barât // NME Interview

Carl

There’s an excellent interview with Carl Barât in the new issue of NME. Here’s a couple of Q&A’s with him from the magazine.

Carl Barât // NME Interview

NME: Pete [Doherty] is adamant that The Libertines will reform in 2010. Is it happening?

Barât: If it happens it’ll be after next year. I’m too busy. I want to make a solo album, and there’s these plays I’m doing. Obviously I’d love to do it as long as everything was right – I don’t want to be the guy looking like he’s holding it back – but it’s got to be right. We’re not at that place at the minute.

NME: Pete told us you were offered £2million to headline Reading and Leeds…

Barât: I never believed that, it’s like believing you’re going to win the lottery. Anyway, I want £6million! (Laughs) Seriously, who’s to say we’d get the headline slot, know what I mean?

We Are Country Mice // Ballad Of John

We Are Country Mice

We Are Country Mice were the talk of CMJ, even drawing comparisons to Wilco. Pitchfork was quoted as saying, “We Are Country Mice make music that sounds like Being There mashed up with a little Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.” The band is currently putting the finishing touches on a new 7″ on Mexican Summer. WACM is definitely a band on the rise.
