Our favourite piece from this issue is this interview with the Cocteau Twin’s Robin Guthrie. I have never read an interview with him, but his work speaks for itself so I was interested. I’d heard he was a miserable bastard but it seems the polar opposite is true. He speaks a whole lot of sense and it’s refreshing to hear someone unafraid to mince their words and not bother playing the PR game which is so commonplace these days.
