Does Julian seem different?

Posted by Max Fischer on

It seems to me that Julian is much more willing to "play the game" now.. like all this art work coming out for Phrazes.. and the album having all these unique twists.. box sets etc.. I always got the impression that it was Julian who was against that kind of stuff. I thought it was him that wanted to just have the music and that's it. Like how he music videos were very simple for the Strokes.. and here Jules is making a big theatrical Mad Max video etc.

Or is he just changing how he does things because it's solo and that changes his view and approach? But if he was showing Ludlow street to the Strokes as if it was a Strokes song.. makes me wonder if it was others in the band that were wanting to do things in such a minimalistic fashion.

Or does it have something to do with being sober?

M Shea.. but I am wondering who was really fighting it in the past? Julian or the rest of the band? In an old article it made it sound like the rest of the band wanted to do weirder more diverse music.. but now it seems like that was a misunderstanding.. and that maybe it was Julian that really wanted to do weirder music and the rest of the band didn't want to...

Yeah, wow, you pinned it exactly. He is more willing to "play the game." But how long can any given person fight it? And why bother fighting it? I dunno, it's like he's divided into old and new Julian...that's how most people have come to perceive it. I think he has lost a bit of his mysteriousness though, the intrigue, which is why some people are upset with the "new" Jules. I mean, it's kind of whatever to me.

Yes, he's different.

I think his change in musical taste and his interest in Oscar Wilde has a tremendous lot to do with it.
