So for anyone who missed it: the full interview Brandon did with Scott Lipps in december is up on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icfRSisSaGQ
Unfortunately, all the interesting bits (Brandon's favorite song being one he worked on the night before the interview) were already out there. And he says some stuff about how he wanted Here in my Room as a single. Besides that it's a run of the mill interview with Brandon about inspiration, the history of Incubus and a bit about his art and other projects.
I always wonder why every 40/50-minute interview I hear with Brandon is 20 minutes about how Incubus came to be. 'So how did you guys start as a band? You and Jose were in school together right?' 'And that's when Drive blew up right?' It really is a waste of time and of much more interesting subjects to talk about. It always feel like poor interview prep to me, being a journalist myself. The only interesting/new information that came from this interview was from a caller question, which in itself was not a very original question.
I get that these podcasts and radio shows are for a broader audience, but there's nothing left to dig for in that story, Strycker did that all in the KROQ-talk, which did offer some cool new tid bits about the early years, because it felt like Strycker actually did his research and the whole interview was set up to talk about their path to success.
