The notoriously press-shy singer-songwriter Bonnie Prince Billy sets the record straight in this 382 page interview book edited by long-time friend and guitarist, Alan Licht. It’s a free-flowing conversation that touches on every aspect of Oldham’s work and illuminates his often contrary relationship with the industry. Just be sure you’re not too far from the stereo when you’re reading: this book sent me on a Bonnie Prince back catalogue binge.
