Shepard Fairey (Obey) Talks with Paul Banks (Interpol, Muzz) on the Talkhouse Podcast

They discuss the intricacies of collaborating, their political work, and Paul's new band Muzz.

For this week’s show, we paired two game-changing artists working in different mediums who are obsessed with each other’s output: musician Paul Banks (Interpol, Muzz) and visual artist/designer Shepard Fairey (Obey).

Originally aired as part of our Talkhouse Podcast Live On Insta series, their talk takes in a lot, including the evolution of their art; the thrills and intricacies of collaborating; the direct and passive political work they’re involved in; and, of course, Paul’s new Muzz LP!
