Over the next few months I will be publishing audio and written interviews of music luminaries I interviewed in the late 1990s and early 2000s. I will be asking, what are they doing now?
The first up will be American record producer Gordon Raphael, who is best known for his work with the New York city indie rock band The Strokes.
Raphael produced The Strokes‘ debut album, ‘Is This It’.
I interviewed him in his studio in east London. Back then he was most excited by his own outfit, Crystal Radio, London-based Miss Machine, British band Kill Keneda, The Satellites from Mallorca, and a female pianist from New York, Regina Spektor. Watch this space!
