After a Healthy Interval: Young Knives Interviewed
I recently interviewed Young Knives for The Quietus and you can read the resulting feature here: http://thequietus.com/articles/13447-the-young-knives-interview
It was an enormously enjoyable piece to work on at every stage. The band are warm and entertaining company, and it was exciting talking to people who are in thrall to a creative process. Inspired people are inspiring. The band's story is edifying and any young person with ambitions in the music industry should pay attention to it. To anyone who instinctively believes that the best music is the result of autodidacticism, cooperation and self-determination it will come as no surprise that the band's finest work has emerged from a period of total independence.
