Everything in Casablancas's long, hard year as a soloist has carried a steep learning curve, from touring by himself to getting the album into stores. For example, RCA is co-releasing his solo album, yet, he says, "they're not the label I signed with. The people change all the time. They're nice, they're cool, but honestly they don't do shit." So he did most of the work through Cult Records, the label he started for Phrazes and financed himself, and it didn't turn out much better. "You have all these dreams. I still like the plan, but it was executed terribly."Julian Casablancas, Telepathe & Tanlines played their second show together in a row at Terminal 5 on Friday night (1/15). Pictures from the first night, HERE. Pictures from Friday continue below...
And then there's the Strokes. Theoretically, they are putting out a fourth album. "It's coming!" he says. [NY Mag]
