I found this bit of interview on blogotheque.net.

Quote:
Q : Would you indulge me in a quick game of I like/I don’t like ? You’re associated with many people and I suspect that you really don’t like many of them. Nick Cave and the bad seeds ? PW : I like some of his songs. I don’t really know him that much.

Q : Björk ? PW : Björk is a genius. I mean, when I was 12, she was the only one to actually say "this is ****". There’s no need for this, to be so boring. Things with guitars really don’t have to be that banal. I find a true inspiration in that. The fact that she dares to take a string quartet on stage and work that way. I feel the same responsiblity now to get that message across to the young ones. [He makes a parallel with his NME open letter in January 2005]

Q : Pet Shop Boys ? PW : I don’t know. I don’t really think of them.

Q : Soft Cell ? PW : I don’t care either. When I was 17 people were saying like "It’s crazy. You sound like Marc Almond". I don’t know maybe I did because I sang very passionately in English but I never listened to a Soft Cell record in my life.

Q : Tindersticks ? PW : I don’t know.

Q : Scott Walker ? PW : I prefer Jacques Brel. [I try there to get him to listen to Tilt. The NME also mentioned Tilt in their review last week (in the 12/02/2005 issue)]

Q : Radiohead ? PW : I don’t know but my sister likes them.

Q : Nick Drake ? PW : Yeah. I’ve got a couple of Nick Drake’s records.

Whenever i listen to him i don't associate him to anyone. I think he's pretty unique..at least for me

'Epilogue' is the most beautiful instrumental song i've heard

Wolf Song is one that I especially like. It sounds a bit medieval at the beginning then progresses with electronic sounds and tah-da, the song doesn't seem dated at all!

ahhh....very enlightening. totally agree with him about bjork. of course,i would put scott walker and jacques brel in the same chapter of music with bowie because really there are no others [men] like them.

perhaps,the nick cave thing is something kindred in their interest in composition.

Yeah i've been listening to that song alot lately

Lycanthropy has this Oliver Twist thing which i love. Wind in the wires is more gypsy-ish..

The Hood Internet did a mash-up of "Magic Positon" with Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" and it is, quite frankly, awesome.

Pictures of Patrick Wolf in his old band, Maison Crimineaux, back in 2003.

Thanks to someone from livejournal for this download link...

I discovered Patrick from this video. I fell in love with the song so much!

http://youtube.com/watch?v=H-6MjpvhsYs

I think the music fits the show PERFECTLY. To be honest, I don't really like a lot of his stuff, but I ADORE "Overture" SO much!

i dunno what to think about it though. i can't really assess since it's such a short clip. seems a bit weird initially.

Overture is such a beautiful song dior_couture. I'm suprised you don't like his other stuff since most of it is as rich in instruments as that song. Have you heard anything off Wind in the wires like 'The Libertine'?
