Marching Bands of Manhattan: Interpol on KCRW

One of the more anticipated albums in recent memory leaked recently. Inevitably, it will be compared to its highly successful predecessor, and there will be a subsequently polarizing debate as to which work is better, despite the fact that the debate is inherently subjective. Sound familiar? But, despite the gloominess of that interpretation, it's really a whole lot of fun. One of the most intriguing elements of music is its constant evolution, even if it leads to information overload. Yet, the question remains, what's Interpol gonna do with their third album?

But today, let's take a trip down memory lane. This set was recorded on KCRW's venerable Morning Becomes Eclectic on July 29th, 2002, just a few weeks before Turn On The Bright Lights was released.
