As we met Interpol's guitarist Daniel Kessler at Leeds Festival they were at the business end of a mammoth two year tour of their 4th studio album, Interpol. Now together for over a decade, and surviving their fair share of scrapes (including the departure of bassist Carlos D) they are without doubt a wiser and more mature version of the young band who released Turn On The Bright Lights way back in 2001.
Daniel was kind enough to talk with us at length on a variety of different topics, but the thing that puzzles us most here at Contactmusic is how, in the mire that was Friday, he had not a single speck of mud on his immaculate suit or even his wellies. The very definition of cool, we say.
