Following the 15th anniversary of Interpol's spectacular seminal album Turn On the Bright Lights, VMAN is opening the vaults to take a look at our first feature on the band for our third issue in 2004, just after they released their sophomore album Antics. Paul Banks and Sam Fogarino sat down with William Van Meter to talk about their style ("I don't even like skinny ties!"), the unexpected success of Bright Lights ("I had so much anxiety about how it was going to go over"), and if New York City influences their music ("I guess so, but how the fuck can you really tell how a space feeds into a sound? It's too abstract.")

See the feature in full below.
