Interview: Herman Dune
A Yes/No interview with the Swedish antifolk band playing Harfa on Sunday, March 3rd
Q. Antifolk is mostly sprung from some guy named Lach, who hangs out at a place called the Sidewalk café in the East Village and hates “traditional” and conservative poses adopted by current folk artists, right?
A. Yes, sort-
Q. That’ll do, thanks. Yes or No.
Q. Was Beck part of this "antifolk" thing?
Q. Is he any longer, or has his membership been revoked?
Q. No, he isn't a member?
Q. Whatever. You dig Dean Wareham, don’t you? You dig on his alt-noodler guitar style and the conversational tone he took up in latter-day Luna records, right?
A. Yeah, I guess.
Q. I know, Galaxie 500 is a "better" reference point, but they’re too emotional, too sloppy. Your sound is much more precise.
Q. If someone said your music sounds a bit like Devendra Banhart jamming with Kings of Convenience, would you say they were just taking the piss at your expense?
Q. Are you just saying, "Yes" all the time?
Q. Are you at all turned off by excellent musicians being forced to pigeonhole their efforts in order to achieve some nominal memetic (sic intended) value? Is it possible that your music could simply be called "rock music without a lot of unnecessary hair?"
A. Yes. And no.
Q. Will you discuss politics, or beer?
Q. My bad.
A. Don’t say, "My bad."
Q. Sorry, I know.
Q. Do you have any idea where Klub Harfa is?
