It's Going To Be A Bright New Day: Would You Rather with Bonnie Prince Billy
Rough Trade Editions No.35 finds writer Max Porter sitting down to question Will Oldham in his Bonnie Prince Billy guise. The questions are formed as simple choices, each prefixed by the phrase 'Would you rather...'. For example 'Would you rather be skilled in the carving of wood or stone?'
This 'gentle game' is very revealing and a nice way to get something new from a musician, avoiding the usual journalistic questioning. If you like BPB, as we do, then this intriguing zine may be for you.
Graphic design duties, as usual, fall to Craig Oldham, which means this looks good as well as reads well.
