Pt 1 of 4 of Nardwuar the Human Serviette's interview with Julian and Nick from the Strokes at Carlos 'n Bud's in Vancouver, BC , Canada on August 12, 2001.

Nardwuar is being unusually rude in this interview. Seems like he's trying to expose then as some rich, spoiled manufactured band with a made up history.

+Morpheus X This really was strange. Nard is usually amicable but he was outright combative like it was an expose. Not fun.

I listened to their music for almost a year, and claimed it was my favorite band when it was part of discussion, even though I knew nothing about the band members, at all. They're right, it's the music that should be listened to first. The interview was much more interesting that way. I was intrigued by their attitudes and this tells me that there's a reason why all their music is amazing. These guys are great. I'm glad they don't think about their image as a main focus, that shit is pathetic. If the whole world stopped thinking about the image of something and focused on the vibes, the moods, the talent, the feeling, everything would be alright.

This interviewer is a complete asshole. Just trying to get them to say something that will make them look bad..

Of course- exactly. Because Nardwuar is the kindest dude they can possibly have ever been interviewed by.  You don't understand, you are 6.

Julian is so right! Hear the music first then find out the band later

This is the worse Nardwuar interview I've seen yet. He usually pays a great compliment to the artist he is interviewing, and portrays their artistic and cultural references in a very informed way. In this case, he is just taking the piss... maybe he just likes hip hop and punk and doesnt respect the strokes music ? If thats so well, this is one interview he maybe shouldn't have done... or I at least shouldnt have seen.

"These guys are The Strokes" - Interviewer "Ohh really? I love you guys!" - Chick "They suck man, they suck!" - drunk dude in the backround "Is that how you're going to welcome them to Vancouver?" - Interviewer "Fuck off... get out of my town"  HAHAHAH

This is the first time I've seen Nardwuar be mean and not because they didn't deserve but he knew they were just a bunch of spoiled prissy rich kids and wasn't going to kiss ass the way everyone else did to the Strokes. You can tellthey know it, too, they seem pretty on edge and paranoid as they should seeing how Nardwuar is friends with the Buddyhead bunch.

Are the questions intended to be sideways and extremely close to rude?  Is that the schtick? 
Report spam or abuse
It's true.. Nardwuar is weirdly antagonizing in this interview. He's almost never like that. He's silly but never antagonizing.
Report spam or abuse
NARDWUAR you need to re-interview the strokes. Im sure they would have way more respect for you the second time around. It surprised me that "Nick and Julian from the Strokes" never understood how you do interviews. They are just too young in this video.

"no.. ur nice" "nice" "nice"

i have notice nardwaur seem agressive back in the day with his interviews
Report spam or abuse
well said. He's got interviewing down to a science now tho for sure
Report spam or abuse
OK, so Nardwuar sort of operates unconventionally because his goal is to really get a rise out of these music icons and surprise them and get them to say and reveal odd shit. Real life reactions. He's being real. He's a legend for a great reason.

sure they're songs are catchy but they're fucking idiots if they think that their image doesn't sell their shit.
Report spam or abuse
That's totally subjective but in a sense I agree with you. They had more of an impact on music and were forefathers of punk as well as street poetry. That's not to say that The Strokes didnt have their impact, but Television's debut album is a great, as well as visionary, work. There's also the fact that Television were only together for a short time, and in a way burned out more than faded away that leaves a more endearing memory of them
Report spam or abuse
Of course, everything in music is... That being said, I saw Television just last year!

I remember in 2002 or '03 The Strokes & The Kings Of Leon were all hanging at The Kings Arms in Auckland, New Zealand before or after the Big Day Out (I think) & Julian (the singer, or whoever the singer of the Strokes is) was a complete fuck-wit acting all bulshie & tough! My friend was a barman @ the Kings Arms so I was catching up with him. This guy was clearly looking for a fight in a "I'm the lead singer of a new hip & up' n' coming band & need to prove my international street cred' " kinda way! If I'd been a tough guy I would have gladly broken his nose, but alas, I am not! It was a fucking disgrace! I don't mind there music but his sense of entitlement really put me off those guys!

Never seen so much hate for Nardwuar on one of his videos.  I guess that says a lot about fans of The Strokes, they must be as lame as them and their music.
Report spam or abuse
I'm a Nard fan but the way he was talking to them, while I don't think it was intentional, was really intimidating. Not a fan of The Strokes either I think Nard just said a few wrong things and then it snowballed when he tried to come back from it. He's not used to being the "dick" in the interview, intentional or not.
