Guff: An interview with Jeffrey Lewis

May 12, 2009


The last time the Comic Cast did acid we went insane . . . and interviewed anti-folk singer/songwriter and comic book artist Jeffrey Lewis! Lewis has several great albums under his belt  including City & Eastern Songs with his brother Jack, 12 Crass Songs – a collection of songs by the anarchist punk band Crass, reworked by Jeffrey, not to mention his brand new album EM ARE I.  His comic book series Fuff is currently on it’s seventh issue. We met up with Jeffrey before his gig in Dublin to talk about his comics, his thesis on Watchmen and doing live music videos on stage. Enjoy!

(Since this interview is a bit shorter than usual, we also review X-Men Origins: Wolverine and dish out some bang-up-to-date Irish comics news)
