L'├ętoile Magazine interview



"I toured in an RV for a little while. Parts would fly off of it all over the place. I lost the awning the second day out. It unrolled, became like this big parachute just filled with air and I’m on the freeway going 75 miles an hour. It finally ripped off. Pulled to the side a bit and sped up trying to, well.. I saw it flying off in the back, and we just drove away, ya know?"

"I imagine that Charlie Parr will be tickled to play on the Green Music Fest’s bike-powered stage, which gets its juice from eight riders on stationary bicycles; he’s mounted a rack on his car in case he feels like taking his own bike on tour."
