Vincent Moon lays into Arcade Fire

In an interview with French director Vincent Moon discusses the influence of his Take Away Shows (La Blogoteque), his waning interest in Western music, artistic provocation, film-making and what he really thinks of Arcade Fire.

“They’re not good people, that’s it. And I don’t mean the whole band—I mean the leaders of the band and their management. What I hate about the band now is that people call them an indie band and they’re not an indie band, they are a mainstream band. Maybe they’re on an indie label but that doesn’t mean anything. Those guys are just making things on a very big level, a very mainstream way of thinking. The way they deal with their business is really disgusting for me. The way they deal with things is awful. Their management are awful, awful people, and I know what I’m talking about. I have some really terrible stories with them.”

It’s a frank and insightful read, full interview here.
