Craig Finn. Clash Music. Literary influences. And Interiew Sundays.
Craig Finn "Clear Heart Full Eyes" from Helms Workshop on Vimeo.
Ah yes, Interview Sundays are back. And today we are Craig Finn interview, yes that Craig Finn, at the Clash Music, talking writing songs and literary influences therein.
Is there a book / author you would view as a parallel to the album, in terms of mood / theme?
I think any of the Raymond Carver stuff would be the most likely parallel. Not that this album in any way holds up to his writing, but in the sense that it often deals with the mundane and normal and the frustrations and terror that we sometimes find in our daily lives.
