JOHN CALE

As a founder of The Velvet Underground, none of our interviewees from this year have contributed to modern popular music and culture to the extent that John Cale has. He discussed many things with us, including how he gets a kick out of Snoop Dogg and why reforming the Velvets is a very bad idea indeed.

TIMBER TIMBRE

… and an antidote to all the above candid chit-chat, Timber Timbre didn’t so much clam-up as arrive mid hibernation. Reluctant to talk about anything whatsoever, somehow it made them fascinating (if a little embarrassing), and proved that saying nothing is sometimes as entertaining as telling all.
