Matt Lucas interviews Ben in NME

14/July/2005 - 10:49

Matt Lucas interviews Ben Folds in this week's NME MagazineIt's not often that I'll encourage you to go out and buy a copy of NME, but this week I'll make an exception.

There's a two-page feature where Matt Lucas - star of the UK's hit comedy 'Little Britain' - interviews Ben the morning after his show at the Hammersmith Apollo on May 31st. Incidentally, many eagle-eyed 'burbians spotted Lucas as he left that evening.

The interview is nothing special - more of a chat than anything else. NME (who have a noted dislike of Mr. Folds) are obviously more interested in Matt Lucas, but it's great to see a household name rooting for the Folds and getting him some exposure over here. The fact that they had to run a 'Who the hell is Ben Folds?' boxout speaks volumes for the publication.

For those without the ability to purchase NME, malemiddleclassandwhite has scanned the article for you.
