PODCAST: Episode #164: John Doe of X - The Ghost Cult Interview
We recently caught up with Punk Rock Icon John Doe of X recently, to discuss his new solo album, Fables in a Foreign Land (Fat Possum Records), which was released on May 20th, 2022. John discussed his new album, the conceptual story behind the record and the tracks, how he chooses his collaborators and writes for guests, being a published author and poet, his acting career, politics, touring and working harder than ever, and reflections on 40-plus years of X. The inspiration for this new album is quite vivid and unique  -- “All of these songs take place in the 1890s. There’s a lot of sleeping on the ground, a lot of being hungry, a lot of isolation,” explains Doe of the concept album. “All of that fits into the kind of isolation and lack of modern stimuli that I think people started rediscovering during the pandemic lockdown: realizing that as parts of your life start getting taken away, what’s important and what you live for becomes paramount.” Watch and stream the "El Romance-O" video https://john-doe.lnk.to/ElRomanceO Buy the album here: https://johndoex.bandcamp.com/album/fables-in-a-foreign-land Catch John on tour: http://www.theejohndoe.com   Interview by Ghost Cult Keefy (https://www.instagram.com/ghostcultkeefy).
