Video: The Strokes Talk About Making Mixtapes With TDK

by Eric Van Dril · 18 comments

This is fucking amazing. Eight minutes of The Strokes talking about the good old days when they’d record mixtapes. Need I say more to get you to watch the following video?

(Thank you Tara.)

In many ways, they’ll miss the good old days.

Albert looks healthy and his sense of humour is back. I loved every second of this. I still have the first mixtape I ever made.
oh, and btw kids, a little birdie told me that a certain someone will be resuming music blogging after the new year.
just sayin’.

^Awww YAY I’ve been lacking some good new music as of late. I’m lost without recommendations. Can’t wait.

This video is fucking awesome, might I add. Though I’m too young to have ever made a mixtape. I make mix cds all the time though! And I had a walkman for my cds! That’s about it. But it’s so cool just to have a new interview. The guys are all so lively and interesting. It’s refreshing. And it’s making me grow eager in anticipation of all the promotional things that are sure to come REALLY soon!

YES! HANAN! And a new Strokes interview and new album soon! How can it get any better? I liked hearing more from Nikolai than we usually do. Sadly, I’m way too young for mix tapes or walkmen…

aww! that was so cool! i remember listening to tapes on my walkman, although I never made a mix tape.
