TAS in Session: The Fiery Furnaces


Audio clip

Interview/Performance with The Fiery Furnaces

We were lucky enough to have The Fiery Friedbergers come to our studio A for an interview and performance. I meant to discuss highly intellectual things with them. Topics of the discussion were: song theory, musical arrangements, graphic design, sibling rivalry, file  sharing and the idea of them putting out a silent record.

Tom Waits once said that one of the most interesting records he has in his collection is The Best of Marcel Marceau. It had forty minutes of silence followed by applause and it sold really well. Tom says, "I like to put it on for company but it really bothers me, though, when people talk through it." I thought I'd bring that up. But you never can tell where a conversation will go. Sometimes they are unwieldy and spontaneous and fun, much like a Fiery Furnaces album. So please enjoy my rather comical interview with them.
