Thank you. Much appreciated...😉👍🏻 Is this the entire interview as it seems to end quite abruptly here..?

Obviously, this is not the complete text.

However, those two shots of Neil look way better and more expressive than those from the last 3 or 4 album campaigns...

Completely agree, the closest picture could easily be the best Neil photo of the last 2 decades on a record, video or interview.

Oh you guys are right, the interview must be longer. I thought that was the whole thing.
www.fantasticman.com/magazine Must only show a preview.
The magazine skips from page 143 to 148.
We'll have to track down the full thing. It might even have hints of an upcoming release.

I've always thought West End Girls was a quite strange song for Neil. In some way, my mind always thought it was strange that dark, sexy and quite masculine vibe in a Neil's song. I know it was written in bed, after watching a gangsters movie with a relative. But for me, the song has nothing to do with Neil's personality. Now we know it was an instigation from Chris. Now, it makes sense.

Thanks for the interview.

I've read the full interview, as suspected it gets into what Neil is currently up to as well.
No golden nuggets of info, he says him and Chris have "recently" been working on music. I'm not sure when the interview was conducted, it sounds like the same info in the latest radio interview Neil did before Cosmic Fringes had a release date.

Overall the interview is sort of interesting, it has a relaxed vibe as if they think no one's going to read it. Briefs on Neil's first sexual experience with another man, has the true meaning behind Cricket Wife, has some negative slag talk about PSB fans. Those are the parts that stand out for me at least.

Has someone else already realised that the photographer mirrors in Neil's Prada shoe? ;-)
