The guys of The Line Of Best Fit just published an interview with the Malcolm Middelton about his latest project Human Don’t Be Angry. He speaks openly about the split of Arab Strap, his inspirations for his latest record and his love for 80s heavy metal.
“I do enjoy creating things myself but then I’ll get stuck in a hole. Then someone will come along and I’ll suddenly realize I’m so much better having somebody else’s input. For the current album, if Paul Savage hadn’t produced it, it probably would sound more ambient like the Live At Leeds concert. That would have been fine because at the time that’s what I was looking for, but letting him have input in the recording process completely changed it and made it a nice surprise for me and a record I’m happy with. With Paul, I got into the whole programming thing and we eventually used lots of drum beats and pop elements in the recordings.”
Go check out the whole interview on the website of The Line Of Best Fit and make sure you’ll listen to his stunning record. Oh.. and for the ones who didn’t know yet; he’ll be performing with this project on Friday the 10th of September at our festival.
