Nardwuar the Human Serviette

Being home for the holidays, my music listening/uploading has been somewhat restricted, but I thought I'd share the genius of Nardwuar "the Human Serviette" with the unfamiliar.

Nardwuar is truly a one of a kind interviewer, who has the ability to really expose the true nature of the people he interviews (mostly by pushing their buttons). The guy is a wizard in all genres, which dressed in his attire and character throws a lot of people off-guard -- and the results are always entertaining.

So yeah, there's about 10 solid pages on youtube of people he interviews, and you'd be doing yourself a favor to check them out.

Some of my favorites:

The Mars Volta pt. 1/2


Simple Plan

Even if the artists don't interest you, pretty much every interview is golden.
A lot of the time conventional interviews paint artists a certain way (like TMV being pretentious), but Nardwuar's approach really exposes the true character (and patience) of the people he's interviewing...I ended up respecting some groups I normally wouldn't care to listen to (Dropkick Murpheys) and vice-versa (Blur/Damon Albarn).

Enjoy mengs.
