Uncensored Interview is a platform designed to find out what happens when indie musicians stop being polite….and start being real. In relaxed environments, away from any fan, pre, or post-performance-induced hysteria, artists unassociated with major labels (The Kills, The Whigs, Hopewell, hundreds more) casually discuss whatever the hell they want to casually discuss (fickle American fame, influences, censorship, sex).
No bleeps. No edits. Just raw access to a section of the music biz neglected by mainstream media coverage.
It provides a way for fans to see their favorites outside the limelight, but Uncensored Interview also plays the part of new media sociologist. The site is a video catalog of findings in an ongoing investigation to figure out exactly wtf is this ambiguous entity called “indie music.”
To aid their inquiry, Uncensored Interview has solicited those outside of music and inside the internet to offer perspective. A couple weeks ago I met up with a camera crew to give my take on web video, pornography, history, and how being Jewish is a lot like playing a gig at Pete’s Candy Store.
