CHUD.com has an entertaining interview with the band, talking about Awesome and some other silly stuff.
Q: There were some great, great audience shots, especially the girl who was dancing like you, Mike.City Beat has a strangely pieced article that combines an interview with the band while they were at SXSW this month with an interview from the Paul's Boutique era. Have a beer before you read this one. It might make sense.
Mike D: She was actually digitally manipulated. Her dancing wasn’t anything to do with it and it has nothing to do with what I’m capable of.
Fashionably late, New York Press offers an interview with the Beastie Boys while they were at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
How did you manage to stay together so long?Finally, The New York Times provides a conversation with the Beastie Boys from the New York premiere of Awesome at Loews Theatre the other night.
Mike D: Fistfights.
Adrock: Yeah, but it’s not just fights, it’s group therapy. We have encounter bats.
Mike D: And we have a lot of pillow fights. We learned that from Aerosmith. They taught us about therapy and shoulder rubs.
Adrock: And raunch.
After a little talk about the movie, we asked if there were any big projects in the works.
"No," said AD ROCK, who was chewing gum.
A long pause.
"We have a lot of stuff we are working on," he added.
"We are lying," said MIKE D.
"We're just kicking it, you know. Rhyming," said Ad Rock.
His eyes scanned the lobby indifferently. "Oh, detailing cars. Restaurants, lots of restaurants."
