Arcade Fire interview @ Pitchfork
« on: 16 Feb 2005, 07:03 »

Here's the link, folks.

Pitchfork goes way over the top, pretension-wise, right from the beginning by trying to piggyback themselves with the Arcade Fire: "It's really funny. It's like we can't exist independently in the press. I mean, are you as sick of that as we are?"  Win isn't having any of their BS, though.  :D

I just read through the entire interview and it was really obnoxious in the beginning. Pitchfork was trying so hard to link themselves to Arcade Fire. Then when Win ducked and avoided their attempts they came back and tried duct tape, chains, and anything else to make it seem like Arcade Fire and Pitchfork are really one and the same. It was just so grossly obvious that it was painful to read during the beginning.

Finally after Win ducked and dodged enough, Pitchfork just gave up and decided to give an interview.

I'm a pretty cynical person, so I thought maybe I was just making the obnoxiousness of Pitchfork up in my brain.  Good to know other people saw it too.


Hehe, Win doesn't seem all together happy with the interview, does he?  It made me smile.  I think my favorite quote from the whole thing was "I don't listen to much indie rock."


Mmmmm, irony.

Win: I don't know. I think that people have a narrow view of things. You definitely get a lot of lazy, weak features. And I'm sure you guys probably experience that as well.

I think Win might have snuck in a little shot there. This makes me happy.

I don't know if that was exactly snuck in.  Heh.  Pitchfork person also seemed to have quite a fondness for the word "like."

"It's like I was saying about religious texts. Religions take very seriously the idea that death is real. I think that MTV doesn't take the idea very seriously, and yes, I'm exposed to MTV and I choose to watch MTV a lot more than I choose to read the Koran. Like, I was watching "The Ashlee Simpson Show" last night and it just sucked me in. Two hours of my life! I chose to do it, you know?"

Jesus, enough with the Pitchfork bashing, people. It's lame and trite and boring. If you don't like them, why are you reading their site?
