Interview with Kula Shaker

20 years ago, in 1996, Kula Shaker released the album “K”, which became the cult album of Britpop and was sold in 2 million copies.

Father is the guitarist in the group, mother produces radio jingles. Continue reading

Interview with Jake Bugg

Jordan Bassett met a man in the midst of his own rebirth.

Jake Bugg is not ready for close angles. He arrives at a whitewashed studio in West London, shakes hands with us (unexpectedly tight) and leaves to do makeup – it seems that decades pass before he returns. He puts on a white and purple tie-dye jacket, “slightly new rave,” his stylist notes with concern. Continue reading
