Vincent Moon on Arcade Fire: “They’re not good people”

on January 31, 2011, 4:42pm
“They’re not good people, that’s it. And I don’t mean the whole band—I mean the leaders of the band and their management. What I hate about the band now is that people call them an indie band and they’re not an indie band, they are a mainstream band. Maybe they’re on an indie label but that doesn’t mean anything. Those guys are just making things on a very big level, a very mainstream way of thinking. The way they deal with their business is really disgusting for me. The way they deal with things is awful. Their management are awful, awful people, and I know what I’m talking about. I have some really terrible stories with them.”

Before the Grammy nominations and Bono endorsements, Arcade Fire performed in a Paris elevator in 2007, which was filmed by director Vincent Moon for La Blogotech. (Moon also worked with the band on their 2008 film Miroir Noir.) Per his recent comments to Eye Weekly, well, you can kind of tell how it went…
