Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy

Edited by Alan Licht


Please note there are two editions available: a paperback (£15.99) and a limited edition (£150). Details for both are included in the following blurb.

A man who acts under the name Will Oldham and a singer songwriter who performs under the name Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has, over the past quarter of a century, made an idiosyncratic journey through, and an indelible mark on, the worlds of indie rock and independent cinema, intersecting with such disparate figures as Johnny Cash, Bjork, James Earl Jones and R. Kelly along the way.

These conversations with long-time friend and associate Alan Licht probe his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes notions of intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity.

Limited Edition:

300 copies available.

Each copy will be signed and numbered, and encased in a beautiful chocolate and silver Solander box. In every box there will be two 10" vinyls with six exclusive and (as yet) unreleased tracks, recorded in January 2012. Each box set will also be individually numbered and labelled.
