Interviews overview

Only two interviews with Andrew Eldritch surfaced at the time of this tour; they are parts of one bigger interview authored by Scott Wilson and wisely sold to not one but two (maybe more) publications. Both are too short to be really interesting.

Orange County Register interview costs $1.95 (1999 autumn)

First of them, published in Orange County Register on 1999/10/08, deals with short story of the war with record label and how the band survived it, the Big Goth Question and the present state of things in the band ("We have a very, very good chemistry at the moment, and there's no one in the band who doesn't understand that there's an equation between power and responsibility. That was sometimes misunderstood in the past"). The interview is quite short and hardly worth the money.

Allstar interview (1999 autumn)

The second one, published by Allstar news service on 1999/10/20, details future plans and specifically the new album ("We're in no particular rush about it, but we're putting songs down now. It will take us another six months to finish it, and then shop it around."). It helps to remember that promising an album "sometime next year" was Eldritch's favorite line for most of the 90s. The trend started with the first issue of Underneath the Rock: "We're currently putting our minds to the next album". The year was 1991.
