Every time I try to find the words to describe what Interpol were like, what they have done to me, my head fills with lyrics, riffs and Paul Banks' haunting, wailing voice. I can't think straight when I try to explain them.
They were always up there with my top bands, but what they make me feel now is something above and beyond just liking a band. I'd go so far as to call it a mild obsession. I cannot listen to any other music, and usually I find it hard to decide on just one band to listen to. But there could be nothing other than Interpol on my iPod and I wouldn't care.
I'm sure it will pass, but for the next few days, weeks, maybe longer, it is consuming me.
