Northern Transmissions Interviews Stephen Malkmus, lead singer of Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. Their album “Wig Out At Jag Bags” is out on Matador Records
" I listen to all kinds of stuff. I genuinely have a soft spot for artists that are under the radar, from like the 60’s and 70’s. It doesn’t always bleed into our music. I try to be myself. You know, I’m really not angry, I’m not from the inner city. So what I write, really comes from an honest place, I try to make honest music. The Rolling Stones sold us some working class blues, I’m not so sure about that."
