Re: pitchfork tv talks to tim and laetitia pt 2

Pretty uninspired questions, really. I am far more interested in the Tim/Lae 'relationship'. Was Lae having a dig at Tim about who has the control in Stereolab? I must say that I respect them both for carrying on with the groop. I have always really disliked my ex girlfriends. I could never work with one. God, what a thought!!

I watch my staff and they all try to mend their relationships with their ex's to end on good terms. To move on as if they are the bigger person. I always wonder why. When my relationships have been over they are OVER. I'm not interested in carrying on. I probably wouldnt say hi to one in a market if i saw them. They served their purpose and i moved on. And so have they (hopefully). all of my relationships have ended very rapidly and i have never been in contact with that person again. Mind you i have always picked mates outside of my social circle.

I think Tim has always treated Laetitia like an instrument. Cept this instrument writes her own notes and plays herself. there is a certain comfort in a formula that works, right?

no shit! I want to know what they're both listening to now. I do like when they comment on specific albums and tracks though. Laetitia was definitely very bold with the Cobra thing.

Why is it so bold? She can say whatever she wants. In many ways Cobra encapsulates their many varied sounds quite well, even if the whole thing is cumbersome.

I liked what she said at the end, and I don't think it was a dig at Tim about him controlling things, she was just being matter of fact. As long as the songs keep coming to her, she's happy to contribute and keep Stereolab going. I think this is a great message to us fans, that they may continue for quite a while yet.
