XNTHONY SPEAKS TO MASC.LIFE

November 21 x x x

Fun, honest and insightful interview between XNTHONY & Stephen Moloney of MASC.LIFE.

‘Speaking with Xnthony is demanding. He is frequently interrupted by his own interjections – a throwaway remark, an aside, a footnote, a mutter, an exclamation, an indeterminable sound – many of which seem like ideas, or the bases for ideas, which find brief expression before being stored away for the future. Or maybe they are immediately forgotten and replaced. Sitting face to face with him is to be confronted by somebody frothing and foaming with ideas, schemes, and plans ["as long as I have a filter, everything is good"]. For this, speaking with Xnthony is energising. Undoubtedly, he is provocative – for the sake of it or not, I do not know – and seems to enjoy seeking out reactions. However, like the art he makes, and the art he is, Xnthony is compelling – you can’t look away and, even if you could, you probably wouldn’t want to.’

who are we?!

Did you question your position on #BREXIT ? We tried to convince you to STAY! We need you! We can’t do this without you!

But of course… no one listened. But no matter, our possible Eurovision banger for 2017 was an underground hit in London and Ireland. And beware, it’s a catchy one.

…Pity “remain” wasn’t as catchy as this tune…!

Introducing ‘WHO ARE WE’ – a very special music video all about Brexit. Mind you it is also a possible #eurovision song for Ukraine in 2017 and we all know how popular those political songs are at the moment!
