Under the Radar has a brand new interview with Spencer where he talks in depth about the future of Moonface. He also sets the record straight on the status of Sunset Rubdown:
I know you’ve made your feelings on Wolf Parade’s hiatus as clear as possible, but what is the status of Sunset Rubdown?
Probably most of the things I’ve said about Wolf Parade and our “indefinite hiatus” could be applied to Sunset Rubdown at this point. I don’t foresee any future for that band. It was weird, we just stopped playing. Stopped writing. We never talked about it. It was just in the air for the entirety of our last tour: that it was ending. For the most part, we still haven’t talked about it. Not as a whole band, anyway. But I know there is still a lot of love within that group of people. If we do ever play again, it won’t be for a long time from now…. Mike went to art school.
Spencer also mentions he will be focusing on his fiction writing this winter. For those of you interested in reading some of Spencer’s short stories you can check the Spencer’s Writings section. I just updated it with a brand new short story ‘The Slowpoke’ which Spencer had published in the Australian journal The Lifted Brow.
