Video Exclusive: Chart Rigger Speaks To Sarah Cracknell From Saint Etienne

Something I put together with the amazing Taco Twins last night.


I'd been wanting to do something with these unused bits from a 2006 interview with Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne for a long time, especially since there's some great stuff in there about Kylie Minogue recording "Nothing Can Stop Us," plus other SE songs.

    Nice job with the production and the interview. You're not TOO much of a fan, are you?

    Great stuff! I got introduced to Saint Etienne/Sarah Cracknell a little over a year ago - was actually just listening to Lipslide last night. What an engaging interviewee she seems to be.

    Sadly, nothing in there about "Shower Scene" which is probably one of my favorite songs of theirs (not entirely an original opinion, I realize, but y'know.)

    Thanks, Daft Monk, Mr. K, Moog & John!

    Dan, I did get her to talk about "Shower Scene," but she mostly talked about the part in the film Finisterre when the song plays, rather than the song itself, so I didn't include it. She said the director (Paul Kelly, who you can hear her in the clip say directed the "Hobart Paving" vid) was waiting all day for the rain to come, cameras ready, and finally it downpoured and he ran outside with his equipment to shoot it.

    She thought she recalled him ruining one of his cameras in the process.

    How fantastic! Fascinating and very well put together!

    I've always thought Kylie's version of Nothing Can Stop Us was one of her most charming Deconstruction recordings. It's nice to hear Sarah approved of her interpretation.

    Brilliant! They need a new record NOW.

    I am concerned thought that your house was on fire in that video. See the inferno burning in the mirror, hmmm?

    I also wonder if you were naked below the table. Just askin'...

    Hurrah!

    Thanks. I must be a mega fan of Ver'Etiennes as I have more CDs of theirs than of anyone else.

    Fantastic interview. I wish there was more! Would gladly plunk down for a new album if it were released tomorrow...

    Oh that was lovely, thank you D'luvly one. AND YES TO THE NEW ALBUM COMMENTS.

    Those of you clamoring for a new album might not know that a 4-disc box set called Boxette went on sale Friday, collecting three of the band's fanclub-only discs plus one of rare, unreleased material. You can order here.... you just have to sign up (for free!) with their fanclub, which takes all of a minute.

    ugh. Blogger ate up my first attempt! So here I go again...

    D'luvs, I am loving this new creation you've come up with! Sarah was quite a lively interviewee.

    I am fairly new to the Saints Etienne (not sure how I missed out up to recently!) Quite by accident I stumbled across Sarah's solo work on the crappy/skimpy E*Music.com site. Anyone who's tried to find decent music to download there can identify with the miraculosity of finding something worthwhile there!

    Back to the vid: I really like how the interview meshed with the artwork and also to the videos. Excellently done! Kudos to all involved!

    I am so jealous you have these gems to play around with. How often does a lay person have bits of a Sarah Craknell interview lying around?

    Can't wait to see/hear the next project you come up with, D'luvz.
