I believe there is an interview in the October 2005 issue of Sonic, a Swedish music magazine:

BOARDS OF CANADA

I alla diskussioner om electronica finns en duo alltid med i bakgrunden; Boards of Canada. Dessa Edinburgh-baserade killar (som eventuellt är bröder) skapade i och med sin andra skiva, 1998 års »Music Has the Right to Children«, något av en milstolpe och måttstock i den genren. Sedan »Music Has the Right to Children« har Boards of Canada hållit en låg profil, uppföljaren »Geogaddi« kom 2002 och nu i mitten av oktober är det dags för album nummer fyra, »The Campfire Headphase«. Nytt för den här gången är bland annat att de frångått sin medieskygga atittyd, vilket innebär att Billy Rimgard fått en audiens hos duon hemma i Skottland.

The only interesting bit in that is

"Nytt för den här gången är bland annat att de frångått sin medieskygga atittyd, vilket innebär att Billy Rimgard fått en audiens hos duon hemma i Skottland."

"New for this time around is that they stopped their media shy attitude and let Billy Rimgard have a interview with them at their home in Scotland."

Well, it would be interesting to read the complete interview and not just the preamble. I am happy to translate if someone could send me the text.

We would greatly appreciate that. Does anyone here actually have the article?

It seems we may just have the blurb in the link that Moebius provided at the top of this thread.

There appears to be a link to buy back issues ("KÖP!") and the Dec 2005 issue (#25) is included among the list, so I assume it is in stock.

Good to hear that you enjoyed yourself. It would have been a slightly different experience if you had been here in the summer of 2001: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPjMs4VFa9g&feature=related.
