Tuss - Grant
Wilson-Claridge email interview in
used for Load Of Old
Tuss article (iDJ
magazine August 2007)
Do you know who The Tuss is?
Sure I do, we signed them
up! but does it matter? We have released tons of ace records.
you tell us if you did?
Yep, i did innit
it one, two or more people?
It is two people at the moment.
it Brian Tregaskin?
Brian and Karen, as stated on the individual releases.
it Richard James having a laugh?
Me and Richard signed it. We have fun doing what we do but
Rephlex business doesn't really make us laugh very often,
more of a constant smile.
it both him and his mates having a laugh?
Phew, the same question put tons of different ways. It definitely
footage of Richard playing a Tuss track live. Is that conclusive
You mean DJ'ing off his laptop? Well then of course not…
Like i asked, why does it matter? People seem more interested
in speculation and celebrity than content, quality or music.
Be careful you don't miss something really great that isn't
do you make of the fuss surrounding The Tuss?
I don't care either way. Would rather be left out
of it as it is not particularly important or relevant. It's
boring to read. Really great to listen to. There are real
fundamental interesting informative issues people could
be writing/learning about.
all those myspace pages made by chancers, if so how come
some of the music is so good?
I am not into myspace personally, but i think it's great
for people that are into it. As you have probably worked
out by now, all the pages are made by chancers and not all
of the music there is so good, some of it I hope not to
hear again. Some of it is cool tho.
we ever find out who he, she or they is or are?
- Ian Roullier, 07/2007
I don't know the answer to that, I'll go and consult
my crystal ball and let you know when i find out. There
are so many good records out there, just support the artists
providing the entertainment you love with your purchase
of a new original edition in decent proportion to your useage
of it. There are also tons of legends myths rumours and
fallacies that arise and become publically accepted as truth
and maybe that's one reason that so much of contemporary
opinion is too far from the ideal.
