It’s extremely rare to hear both Daniel Miller of Mute Records and Andy Fletcher discuss together the state of the music industry.
In a long and fascinating interview which took place at the Audi-O-Rama music industry festival in Switzerland last year, Miller and Fletch rattled off their opinions about a wide range of issues.
They cover music distribution, marketing, studio work, fans, multi-formats, instruments, labels, their respective DJ careers, as well as plenty of anecdotes about Depeche (“dancing girls and cocaine” get a mention).
The interview also includes a “world exclusive”: Fletch has never eaten a bag of crisps in any of his now almost 55 years 🙂
Here is the full interview (a hefty 1 hour and 18 minutes but worth it):
NB: Pictures from the discussion and elsewhere during the event are available on the Depeche Mode Classic Photos and Videos page on Facebook.
