Paddy McAloon Interview - June 2001

A sproutnet exclusive, this interview was carried out (and sent in) by Arnd Zeigler.  He says:

"It was recorded in June 2001 in Cologne, Germany and has never been released anywhere.  It's an interview for German "Radio Bremen 4" (that's the station I am working for) and it was recorded on a promotional tour for the Gunman album. "

It's a (very interesting!) one-sided interview, so it's presented here as individual files.  You should get some idea of the topics from the titles.
