Jürgen Gleue's comix are awesome, thanks for interviewing him about them! I do wish he'd go back to recording though, I'm a huge fan of all his recordings..

Thanks for the article. Gleue is in the same field as Mark E Smith, Ariel Pink, The Rebel, etc in terms of song-crafting music and lyrics. The acid was obviously key, but I think you can appreciate it all with only a little past or present dabbling in psychedelics. It stands up because the craft - complete with mistakes and whatnot - is so strong. He knew what he was doing, consciously, or subconsciously, and/or chemically enhanced! Me I think it's a bit of a shame to over-emphasize the drugs because it sets him up as this casualty more or less, when the music/art is so good. Some of the lyrics and ideas within them are just wonderful in a sort of everyday strangess manner as much as they are psychedelic.
