Mojo Magazine Talks Wood & Music
Xoanon @ 11:57 am EST

Ringer Spy Sam writes: I found this interview with Elijah Wood about his taste in music in the May issue of the UK music magazine MOJO.

What music are you currently grooving to?

I'm really into Scottish music. People don't realise there's all this great talent coming out of there right now - I particularly like Franz Ferdinand. And I'm in kind of a Beatles kick at the moment. I love Let It Be...Naked and the John Lennon box set is amazing! And I'm a huge Michel Gondry fan, of the way he combines music and video. I got to meet with him when I was doing Two Towers and Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, which was great.

What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album?

Oh that's impossible! I mean really. How do you answer that? I've not been to a record store in over a month - which is really weird for me! And I'm getting into new music -I only discovered The Stone Roses during Lord of The Rings. I really like The White Stripes' Elephant though.

What was the first record you bought? And where did you buy it?

I can't remember. There's always been music around. I'm incredibly passionate about it, kind of insane even.

Which musician have you ever wanted to be?

In my fantasies, it would be great! But as a music-minded person you have your rock 'n' roll dreams but I wouldn't personally want to apply them - I love music too much to screw it up, ha ha! But I'm starting my own record label this summer with a friend to facilitate indie bands, get music I believe in out there. Only indie - to help these musicians signed and heard!

What do you sing in the shower?

I don't!

What is your favourite Saturday night record?

That's difficult to answer, because I love so much music. Let's see - Led Zeppelin, Smashing Pumpkins or Jimi Hendrix.

And your Sunday morning record?

Maybe The Flaming Lips, Radiohead or Massive Attack

It's not a he, it's a group. *L*

They are Scottish, and they are good. Kind of mellow, edging on rock sometimes. I highly recommend them *L*

Awww......a Beatles kick? The kid has got good taste, I tell ya.

But what got me the most excited was this:

But I'm starting my own record label this summer with a friend to facilitate indie bands, get music I believe in out there. Only indie - to help these musicians signed and heard!

*jumps up and down excitedly*

Man, I wish I would have stuck with recording engineering. Had I followed that after I finished studying it, I would be working in the music industry today. *frowns* *kicks self*

Anyway, thanks for posting this. I had not seen it yet. :)

Maybe The Flaming Lips, Radiohead or Massive Attack

Massive Attack? Who the heck is this Massive Attack and why are they in such great company???? Does this mean I need their album?


....though I have been alarmed about the similarities between Mr. Wood's and my tastes for some time now. I mean....chucks, anyone? And....and....he met THE GOD OF INDIE ROCK, for chrissakes!!!!!

*Esssplodes some more out of sheer envy*

....and if you are asking yourself right now who Gaya thinks the god of Indie rock is , you don't know me at all, do ya? Sheesh.

OMG... you're right - the chucks, too!

But, yes, Gaya... this is a sign from God. God says you must buy Massive Attack and listen to it.

Oh no.... *moans*... I'm starting to sound like Mister Smith! *L*!
