When The Gramophone Rings joined The 1975 on their recent North American tour dates and constructed an in-depth feature with the band. Tales of the new album, inspirations, what's next and personal lives are all discussed.
“This is an entire album that speaks of a time when pop music wasn’t afraid to be pop music, it wasn’t over encumbered with self awareness and cynicism, it was free. You had bands like Japan and Scritti Politti and Peter Gabriel pushing the boundaries, and it was an amazingly rewarding time. The feeling of songs by those artists, not necessarily the sonic stylistics, was what we try to capture, which I guess is what makes this album hard to put your finger...

Martin Shkreli, the drug company exec widely loathed for jacking prices of a life saving drug 5,000% higher, is apparently the anonymous buyer of the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Shkreli mentions the possibility of paying other artists to record albums just for him, and also says "I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that, but for now, I think I’m going to kind of save it for a rainy day," and RZA says they donated a significant portion of the purchase to charity.
