Malcolm Wilson QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Bzangy Groink is my own label, distributed through Voiceprint. So far there's only one release, my last album, but I'm soon releasing two singles by new young bands that are brilliant.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Everyone has to find their own way, it's just that I don't want to go that way myself. If a band likes being on a major and feels happy there, good luck to them.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I do just what I want. If I want a fourteen minute track on my album, no-one's gonna try and cut it to 3.30. If I want to write about subjects that are difficult, no-one's gonna censor them.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I don't believe that recordings should sound radically better than the artist, I think that's dishonest. For example, I'm not a great singer but if I spent enough time tweaking my vocals, I could sound like one. But I don't, what you hear is pretty much what I sing.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I hated my brief fame. We had TV vans camped outside my house, reporters hounded me... people i'd know for years started treating me differently.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I like 'Bewitched' off the first album because it's one of the happiest songs I've ever written and, as any writer will tell you, happy songs are a million times more difficult to write than sad songs.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I like being 35, I like having a bit of money to spend on music and useless gadgets. The net is providing new ways to communicate and cooperate that just didn't exist in the 80s.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I now believe that major labels can only work with people who care more about fame and money than the quality of the art they produce.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I think I am a star - I'm simply a funny-shaped star.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I was always suspicious of majors but that was based on prejudice, I had no solid experience to back that up with.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I will never sign to a major record label again. If, by some mega fluke, a record of mine looked like it might break big, I'd try and do it via an indie or somehow license it. I'm not having my music owned by those corporate bastards again.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
I'd like to release a new album. I'd also like to find a female backing vocalist but so far I've had no luck at all .
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
It should be in normal shops. Failing that, I'm sure one of the Amazon webshops will have it, if you try the different countries.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
It's like someone cutting up a loved one in front of you, all the time insisting they've got your best interests at heart. They're very devious nowadays.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Mark Radcliffe of BBC Radio One loved it and started playing it on his night-time show. The song was so popular that it migrated to daytime and then a bidding war started with the majors.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Music is more emotional than prose, more revolutionary than poetry. I'm not saying I've got the answers, just a of questions that I don't hear other artists asking.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
My contract had a clause in saying I had total control over all artistic aspects. They wanted a cover of naked robot women. I objected. They said you can have whatever cover you want - you're the artist. But if you have that cover, we might not release the single for, ooh, four months.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Now, having dealt with both Universal and EMI, I can say that I directly know that two major corporations are run by idiots who have no knowledge of music and little understanding even of basic bourgeois economics.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Number one in eight countries, over 350,000 albums sold in North America alone. All of which I'm proud of - I did that! From a little bedroom recording done on a cassette multitracker!
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
On some songs you're hearing the vocal as I improvised it (as in 'Function Of The Orgasm') so you may hear me stumble.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
Sometimes, an afternoon spent in bed with someone can be the most important thing in the universe.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
The Americans are more honest about it and just call it college rock.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
The best press stuff I did was with French pop journalists, people who knew about Francois Truffaut, Wilhelm Reich, Noam Chomsky and Marxism. Most of the other press stuff was 'what's your favourite colour?'
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
The first band is Plans And Apologies and they're kind of folk-emo, very catchy melodies coupled with very loud bits.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
There should be a place and the space for all pop.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
There's so much excellent new music around that I can't afford to buy it all and I haven't the time to review as much as I'd like. I can't remember a better time to be a musician or to listen to music!
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
They consistently hobble artists' in the name of selling more units then are surprised when the fans don't buy the lukewarm music this produces. So they then drop the artist.
Quotation of Malcolm Wilson
We, the artists, make the stuff they sell and they're like ticks on our backs, sucking the life out of us.
