A little talk about love. Interview with Father John Misty

For many years, Joshua Tilman writes songs: for a while he was a drummer of Fleet Foxes, and after that he recorded 2 albums as Father John Misty.

This year, the Russian group NAIV celebrates the 15th anniversary of its fifth studio album, Wholesale and Retail. The team will celebrate this event with concerts in St. Petersburg and Moscow.

Having reunited after a five-year break and celebrating the 25th anniversary of their creative activity with a full-time anniversary tour, the musicians of the NAIV group do not intend to organize tearful nostalgic shows. They, as before, are full of energy, ready to burn, go crazy, go crazy and charge the crowd of fans with crazy drive and positive.

In anticipation of the “festive” concerts, BritishWave.ru talked with the band’s frontman Alexander “Chachey” Ivanov, asking him about the “new era of punk rock”, the language barrier in Russia and plans Continue reading
