Interview: Jon Byrne

May 14, 2013 by

Jon Byrne joined us recently to talk about his arduous journey from the strange sidewalks of the small, working class northern England town of Barrow-in-Furness to his now second full-length album, Built By Angels. Along the way were dead wives in wheelchairs, drugs, bands, videos, and a few pints of lager. I’ll let him tell you the story, he’s a much better storyteller than me.

Here’s the music video Jon refers to in the interview. He does look a bit ill…

Special thanks to Jon, Mark, Barney, Phil and the strange mannequin sculpture sitting behind Jon for the whole interview which I thought was an actual person.
