Elbow Interview *Osheaga 2009*

Here it is. Yeah I had the chance to meet one of Elbow’s band member, Richard Jupp, the drummer on Saturday during Osheaga just a little bit before the band hit the stage. We spent our time discussing about Mercury Prize’s album winner, Seldom Seen Kid.

Then we  finally  talked about how the life of a band could change after winning a Mercury and Ivor Novello Awards, about their collaboration on War Child Heroes CD and about how they deal by writing new stuff, how it’ll sound like and all that jazz
