Te notion of the miserablist is not a sustainable description for any working artist; Malcolm Middleton, Morrissey – they’ve all been labelled as the same, but it’s just too one-dimensional for a successful musician. What? You think they don’t lose their shit over a solid chocolate factory balls-up Kit Kat? Tey feel. Lots. Never more truer has it been said with Eels centre-pin, Mark Oliver Everett, better known as E. Te man knows tragedy; he’d qualify to write the definition and he writes about it, we know. We’ve enjoyed over 15 years of his heart-splattered shirt sleeve, revisited his darkest moments on LP, but there’s more. He is a man, he loves his dog. We were honoured to get to speak to E, a man in three whole dimensions…


So E, you played Glastonbury last night and responses on Twitter suggested you were among people’s highlights – how does that feel? It feels good! Tat’s nice to hear because it was really hard for us to tell what was going on; we were a little out of our minds really. We’d come all the way from Madrid and been on a bus for about 25 hours by the time we reached Glastonbury and you know, everyone mentally prepares you for a monsoon at Glastonbury but it was the hottest day we’d ever set foot in to. Even though we were on at 7 o’clock in the evening, it was just unbelievably hot, you know, the sun just pointed right at us. We didn’t really know what was going on; a couple of us nearly fainted during the show, including myself, so I hope it all seemed good to the audience. It was very exciting seeing everyone there – so many people.
