RA: Breaking through: Fuck Buttons – Interview

My favourites of last year talk tech and techno.

Do they foresee a time when they’ll refine the rough edges a little, turn the distortion down, and generally do the “mature band” thing, in the style of, say, bands like Earth? “Who knows?” ponders Ben. “We do really enjoy the enveloping nature of loud music, but you know, who knows. We’re not sure what we’re ever gonna do next. That’s what brings about the surprises…. Maybe when I’m 80 years old I’ll look back and be like, ‘God, what were we thinking’. But at the moment—no.”

To say that I’m looking forward to tomorrow night’s gig with Clark and Andrew Weatherall would be the understatement of the week. At least.
