In the OC Weekly, my interview with Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke

This was all something of a last minute affair — no fault of Kele’s, I should note! — and I’m not totally thrilled by this story of mine, it’s rushed and feels it. But still readable enough, hopefully — to quote the opening:

Talking to Bloc Party front man Kele Okereke, you can tell he’s from the U.K., and not just from his voice. There’s a wry sense of humor at work, like when he’s asked about his band mate Gordon Moakes’ recent fatherhood. Okereke’s voice turns serious, discussing the tough times that have transpired, that the subject really shouldn’t be brought up—and then he cuts loose with a laugh and a “Nah, only joking!”

The man clearly knows how to handle overly earnest interviewers, at least.
