Drowned in Sound interviews Kele
As a not-so-cleverly-disguised marketing ploy for the live webchat tomorrow, Kele has taken part in a preliminary Any Question Answered session with Drowned in Sound. Read the full article here. This is what he has to say on the new Bloc Party album:
"We're looking at putting a record out at the end of this year, or the start of next year. Right now it feels almost like we're standing in the middle of a forest fire or an earthquake…it’s hard to know where the music is going. We aim to make something organic and inorganic, made of very real components but that sounds not real and frightening. Almost hyper real in a certain aspect. I'm really excited."
Kele webchat...live this Friday at 11am GMT!
Kele will be giving his first 'interview' for a long, long time (well, a few months anyway) on Friday when he takes part in a live webchat for AQA 63336 (Any Question Answered)...a UK text service which strives to find out the answer to any question texted in (e.g. Why do men have nipples? Why do you never see baby pigeons? Why do The Kooks exist?). This is AQA's first live "celebrity answers" session...starting at 11am GMT on Friday 6th June you will be able to put your questions to Kele directly for free. Go here for more info. Maybe Kele will spill the beans on the new Bloc Party material. Anyone who asks what colour underwear he's wearing will be pelted with crunchy peanut butter...you have been warned.
