What does a typical day in the life of Andy Blake involve?
During the week its mainly watching films, making music in my studio, some writing for magazines and websites, doing mixtapes and interviews for various websites, a bit of admin work and emails, hanging out with my girlfriend, our cat and a few close mates, and a bunch of early nights. The weekend is usually pretty much the opposite of that with two or three gigs, lots of partying and not much sleep. Read the full interview and here
Jamie Jones interview:
Do you keep a tight work schedule for gigging, music making the creative things? In other wordshow to do produce and party all the time!
Its a secret I’ll let you in on. About 3 years ago I met this man in Antwerp. We got on well and ended up at an afterparty. It was in this art gallery. After several hours of drinking he told me he wanted to show me his secret lab, and I agreed of course, who wouldnt? In there he showed me a way I could clone myself, so that there would be two of me, and I could enjoy the luxury of half the work and double the rewards. The only warning he gave me was, “make sure you dont play two gigs the same time, and get tagged on Facebook.” Read the full interview on fabric’s blog here
