Asian Dub Foundation Not too long after their first Snakebite
interview a few months earlier, the boys have their chance
to air their opinions on all things including the NME, The
Verve and Scooby Doo. Andrew Mclean does the interview part
Since the last time
we interviewed you, you've had a lot of media attention. Pandit
G laughs, "Was that you're fault then? We'll have to blame
you." Seriously though do you think there was one particular
moment that made this change?
Chandrasonic is the first to comment "I dont think

Pandit G continues "A lot of times when people go to do
an interview with a band they go and can only speak to one person.

interviews all right."

"You get the buzz from getting the crowds in and releasing
a single amongst others. Its all complimentary to each
other," explains Pandit G.
"Yes, its all one lot, we dont try to make
that distinction or analyse it like that," admits Dr Das.
"I tell you what is really good," starts Chandrasonic.
"Is if you can actually get all that and make it work for
something positive, like the Satpal Ram movement. Thats
a huge bonus."

a lot of people cant seem to get out of that text. There
are people going around saying "Asian Dub Foundation, Primal
Scream love em."
"I dont really consider that to be a problem,"
starts Chandrasonic. "If people want to perceive music
