Here’s an excerpt from AdelaideNow’s new interview with Mark Lanegan:
The song Bleeding Muddy Water has a foreboding intensity that can only come from a Lanegan joint. “I tried to achieve the same thing with Bleeding Muddy Water as I do to any song – I make a piece of music, then I try to add to that piece of music once I know what I’m doing with the words and one that fits with the record,” Lanegan says.
“Above all I try and write a song I think I’d listen to and enjoy if I was listening to music and one that I enjoy playing live. I’d like to write with Brian Eno – it probably won’t happen, but anything’s possible. He’s a zen genius.”
