The first time I interviewed Josh Homme, I was 19 and we went shoe shopping in Camden before smoking through a pack of fags with Joey Castillo in the K-West Hotel. I'm pretty sure I almost died, both of happiness and of tar. Nearly seven years later, with their next new album, and without Joey Castillo, we spoke for 10 minutes over the phone. Times have a-changed, indeed. Read about the making of their album, Like Clockwork, over at Drowned in Sound.
Last week I interviewed rock royalty PJ Harvey about her forthcoming (eighth) album 'Let England Shake' for Drowned in Sound. I fought the urge to call her 'Peej' and instead chatted politics, gothic churches and Harold Pinter. All very high brow, you understand.
