Re: fucking brilliant

I know nothing.

Do you think that you have been driven to more "performance art" like performances of your music because people haven't appreciated them as music? Is how you perform them now how you always imagined them or have you felt the need to drive the point home? I suppose I'm asking because I wonder, if they'd found a mass audience, (leaving aside whether that's the audience you really want) whether your gigs would resemble something like Leonard Cohen at the Barbican or whether you'd have been driven to perform them as you do now regardless.

Not really, I think it's a combination of being quite a mainstream entertainer in some ways (the songs are often funny, or tell a story, or something) but in other ways having license to be eccentric (having nothing to lose, ha!). If you put mainstream and eccentric together, you get someone clowning about a bit onstage.
