Check out the interview Julian did with Jada Yuan in the latest issue of New York magazine. (The interview isn’t bad, the title of the store, “Different Stroke,” is quite unfortunate…)
Over a steaming bowl of pork ramen at Momofuku, Julian talks briefly about some of the issues that have plagued the Strokes in the past (“We split the money six ways, but we didn’t split the work.”), his disappointment in RCA (“They’re nice, they’re cool, but honestly they don’t do shit.”), and why he prefers NYC over LA (“L.A. is a vortex…I’m glad I got out of there.”).
All in all a pretty good interview, the photos are nice, and it sounds like Julian is happy and excited about the two shows he’s doing this week. Exciting!
