Fuck Yeah Foals.

Yannis has gotten two new guitars!
A Gibson ES-347, and what seems to be yet another TB-1000S/1000A. Only 2177 of those Travis Bean Guitars were produced between 1974 and 1979 so those things are pretty rare. I got to play one a few months ago. Heaviest guitar I’ve ever held, and probably the most expensive one too at €3,500. View high resolution

Currently going through some interviews for a college project. This is one from 2010, I’d never seen it before. It’s always great to see Yannis interested in the interview. 

In this they discuss The Edmund Fitzgerald, transitioning between Antidotes and TLF, and the affiliation between Foals and Philipakkis.

  • Felix + Florrie: You seemed to have created the look for Foals with their illustrated debut album cover in 2008, how have you found it working so closely with these guys? do you consider yourself the ’6th band member’?
  • Tinhead: Very difficult but very rewarding. They definitely get the best out of me. Sometimes we go through hell to get there but we do in the end. Sometimes however I just get on with it and suprise them. Such as I painted that pool a year ago and showed them it. BINGO! The planets aligned and off we went like barons in the moonlight.
  • Yes we are very close. I would say Yannis definitely brought me on as a man and an artist over the years-due to thought process, mind routes and ideas.. He is one of the few people I have met that has truly changed my life. He would make a good artist too.
Also a day late but happy birthday Walter! View high resolution

Sorry for the lack of updates, I should really get back to keeping this blog. 

This Nardwuar interview is absolutely great, some pretty revealing stuff from Yannis. (I noticed recently he got a book called The Do-It-Yourself Guide To Fighting The Big Motherfuckin’ Sad by Adam Gnade so hope you’re doing good Yannis you the man x)

This looks amazing.
