Ghost of Electricity: In Conversation with James Grant

by Glen Ferris

The following interview took place at Secret Music Recording Studios on the afternoon after a gig at The Arches in Glasgow on January 16, 2004. In addition to asking his own questions, Glen took questions collected from the Strange Kind of List Yahoo Group and put those by James as well. The resulting interview with Grant stretched across three hours and 20,000 words! In order to make the interview more readable, it has been divided into roughly 2,000-word segments, which will be posted on a regular basis.

Part One

Glen and James discuss Steely Dan, the recording of Strange Kind of Love, Mike Oldfield, sampling and, er, the Sugarbabes.
