|FROM AN INTERVIEW|
did you make a LIVE album?
that sort of thing is done by people who perform a lot and have a touring
band, and isn't it a well-known fact that you hate performing?
Well, yes, but it would probably be nicer to say that I'm uncomfortable doing it. Although apparently one can get used to anything, and I've actually done a few more concerts since, without doing too much damage to myself or others.
Touring is too difficult. I think I'll really try and avoid that. But then again, if someone really insists, as was the case with this project .... who knows?
Yes, I thought it might be a good idea to do sort of a retrospective, presenting some older music in a new and different context. And since I had a vocalist, I used a few of the songs from earlier periods, with lyrics by writers such as Beckett, Gorey, and Harold Pinter. And also new music, some of which will reappear, in quite different form, on my next album.
