Devendra Banhart Talks with Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather) for the Talkhouse Podcast

The two musician/painter/writers talk inspiration, new work, and skate heroes.

Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather) has been painting with remote control cars; Devendra Banhart’s been obsessively pondering Christian Slater’s ’89 skater flick Gleaming The Cube. To celebrate Alison’s new art book about cars — Car Ma — and Devendra’s LP Ma, the two got together over salted egg brainless shrimp heads to discuss the above as well as skateboarding as a gateway drug to dope music, the multi-hyphenate magic of Captain Beefheart, how Guns N’ Roses’ November Rain video shaped Devendra’s idea of Americans, and so much more.
