panda head "interviews..."


while i hesitate to call this a full-fledged interview (hence the quotation marks), you can't really blame albert hammond jr. for his brevity - he is a Very Busy Man. as 1/5 of the strokes (and inarguably the best dressed) he spent nearly all of 2006 on tour in support of 'first impressions of earth;' in his off-time he wrote and recorded 'yours to keep' - a solo album with tracks like the irresistible 'call an ambulance' and the julian casablancas and sean lennon-backed 'scared' that succeed in establishing him as a songwriting talent in his own right. his 9:30 club appearance was added just a month ago as the last stop in his north american tour - but don't worry, if you miss this thursday's show with the mooney suzuki you can catch him on conan friday night. and now, albert hammond jr. makes a slight mockery of my 'how do you pack for tour' question, but still manages to be big-time charming by answering 'WOMEN' in all-caps when asked who or what inspires his style. okay he answered everything in all-caps, but i liked that one especially.

Crisp white jeans look so good on men, no matter what time of year. They must be clean, though!
