Anyone with a passing interest in Noel Fielding will probably be aware that he’s currently on the other side of the world in readiness for the start of his Australian and New Zealand tour this coming week. However, only the complete nutjobs amongst us* will be keeping track of all of the interviews he’s been doing while he’s over there – and there have been a fair few of them.
That’s just one of the reasons why we’re here: to save you time by seeking out stuff for you. So, in no particular order, here’s a handy catalogue of the conversations that Noel’s been having over there this past week…
At the beginning of the week, he spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald about how conservative young folk are, News.com about how he’s calmed down a lot in recent years, and The Music about how his next project might be set in the real world. Then there’s this here interview with Stuff and another one with Rolling Stone. Still with us? Good.
If moving pictures are more your thing, Noel also appeared on The Project (which you can see below):
…and he was on Sunrise this morning/yesterday morning (the time difference has confused us, so we’re not entirely sure what day it was!). They even included a small clip of one of our old interviews. Nice.
Noel was on Veronica and Lewis on TripleJ. The interview has very kindly been captured for our aural pleasure by yeahwehadatime (Parts 1, 2 and 3). And if that wasn’t enough, Noel gave Veronica a haircut while he was there:
He was also interviewed by Tommy Little on the Meshel & Tommy show on Nova 100 (which you can listen to via Soundcloud below) – and had a short filmed chat while he was there. Well, why not?
…then Noel spent time with Dan & Maz on 2DayFM. He also talked to Double J Radio, which you can listen to here:
If that little lot wasn’t enough, Noel’s instagram activity has also stepped up a notch while he’s been in Australia – so it’s worth keeping an eye on that for regular pictorial updates.
If you’re in the relevant hemisphere, do make sure you have a ticket for one of his live shows. It’s what it’s all about afterall! Many of the gigs have sold out already, but there are a few dates still available. Details and bookings here.
If we’ve missed anything, please let us know – and we’ll add it in if we can. And if you’re going to one of the shows this week – enjoy!
UPDATE: In the past 24 hours we’ve also had…
…an interview with the Australian Guardian, in which Noel discusses the likelihood of the long-awaited Boosh film and the dangers of shaving foam, and a short video of him on Today’s Entertainment News.
Then finally, here’s a filmed bit of chat with Dan & Maz:
* that’s pretty much everyone then
