Interviews overview

Club Motor interview (1998 summer)

Club Motor used to be webzine of the second largest Scandinavian promoter (as of 1998) Motor interview, intended to be a pre-Arvika one but released only after the tour. The account of the 34 minutes worth of phone conversation defines the formula of good Eldritch interview: (1) do the research, (2) make list of interesting questions, (3) do not edit what comes out of his mouth/fingers.

VF interview (late June 1998)

A Swedish magazine VF interviewed Andrew in late June. Click here to read the original interview in VF's site (in Swedish) (warning: the interview was first translated from English into Swedish by the Swedish journalist, then translated back from Swedish to English by a Swede with limited knowledge of the language and finally edited by a Lithuanian with similarly limited knowledge; yes, you got it: it's not without flaws, to put it very mildly).

Dagens Nyheter interview (1998 summer)

The second Swedish pre-Arvika interview featured in this site was printed in Dagens Nyheter newspaper; click here for the original Swedish words.

HBVL interview (1998 summer)

The third interview is from Belgium's newspaper Het Belang Van Limburg which printed it right before the Neerpelt gig (Neerpelt is in Limburg region), and is one of the best from that period. Click here to read the original Dutch version of the interview.
