“This Actually IS An Outerspace Ship”

A friend of mine asked me the other day to describe the music of Love Tractor and I tried (I said something like, “Brian Wilson singing for Can on Mars…”), but the fact is, words fail when it comes to that particular assignment. All I know is this: Love Tractor were one of the most innovative, inventive and truly wonderful bands of their era. And all these years later, their music doesn’t sound rooted in a time or place; they exist out of time. In this comprehensive chat with Mark Cline, the guitarist talks about the band’s back catalogue, the work ethic of R.E.M.’s Bill Berry and what the Athens Inside/Out movie got SO wrong. He also talks about why everyone wanted to be in Love Tractor, why they took a long hiatus and why 2020 will be the year of the Tractor!
