1998 Faqt magazine interview by Walt Miller
2005 Trax (Italian) magazine interview by Damir Ivic
The 1998 Faqt interview is short and sweet, similar to the 1998 Massive interview. Faqt was a small fanzine publication based in York, PA in connection with Minefield Records. I believe this is the first time seeing this interview out in the wild, which is always exciting.
In this interview BoC talk about their work ethic, certain facades of the electronic music scene at the time, their use of melody, and their use of film, including a mention of the infamous "large film project" that never came to pass.
Also on page 7 in this issue there is a small "Artist Survey" section where several artists were asked who their pop culture heroes were when they were 12 years old.
For Marcus it was Masaaki Hatsumi, the martial artist (Ninjutsu) and founder of the Bujinkan Dojo, and for Michael it was Ted Neeley, of Jesus Christ Superstar fame of course.
The 2005 Trax Italian interview some of you might already have seen out on the web; has been posted on an Italian music site since Tomorrow's Harvest days. It's one of the better interviews out there in my opinion.
They talk a bit about some of the subliminal (false) messages in Geogaddi, the re-release of Twoism, creative processes that come with being a duo rather than a band, making remixes and producing for other artists, the role of marketing, and what kind of the listening experience they were aiming for with TCH. My favorite bit is when they talked a little about the pre-twoism cassette releases, always a fascinating topic especially as of lately.
this quote gives the impression that they aren't embarrassed of their older work.even our very first things, the almost quasi-rock ones, weren't that bad
