    Tori Featured in Sound on Sound

    Tuesday, January 30, 2007 | 05:59 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles

    The February 2007 issue of Sound on Sound includes a lengthy feature article on Tori and Martian Studios. There’s a preview on the site, but folks will have to subscribe to read the full article, which includes gems like this advice from Peter Gabriel:

    “Peter said to me, ‘You’ve made some successful records, but I want to know where you’re going to be in 10 years’ time. There will be good times and bad times with your record label, and to develop your music you need a workshop, a place to experiment.’ I had no idea how right he was going to be. Had I not listened to him, I don’t think I would have survived the war with Atlantic Records. But we were here in Martian Engineering, and we were in control and in command of the music and the record company only had access to the master tapes that I gave them. I’ve heard stories of artists standing outside and banging on doors, screaming ‘Give me my fucking masters!’”

    Sarah and menju56 are the ones with the sharp eyes who sent this in.

    Tori On Mary and Ahmet

    Thursday, January 18, 2007 | 01:25 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles,Cherries

    While Tori’s been busy working on her new album, she’s also been busy contributing essays and quotes on some of her favorite topics: religion and Atlantic Records.

    A new book, The Secrets of the Mary Magdalene, edited by Dan Burstein and Arne J. De Keijzer, includes a passage by Tori focusing on “sinsuality” and Mary and the Muse. The passage is taken from the section on Mary Magdalene in Piece by Piece.

    In Rolling Stone issue 1018 (James Brown on the cover), Tori is quoted talking about the late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records:

    “He would say, ‘just because you’ve sold millions of records doesn’t mean you’re good. McDonald’s sells a lot of hamburgers.’”

    Roxanne, Richard and Kendra, you’re the bomb.

    "Real Men" in Q's "Lost Songs"

    Thursday, January 18, 2007 | 01:03 UTC | Posted by Beth | Articles

    Britain’s Q Magazine features Tori in its February 2007 issue, which lists the “best 500 lost songs.” Tori’s cover of “Real Men,” originally written by Joe Jackson, comes in at 331, and the item is accompanied by a Tales of a Librarian-era photo. The text claims, “Only the most devoted Tori Amos fans bothered to explore her 2001 covers album, but it was full of startling reinventions, including this haunting take on Joe Jackson.” Many thanks to Saar, Philippe, and Rudy for filling us in.

    Performing Songwriter Interview (November, 2006)

    Tuesday, November 14, 2006 | 21:16 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles

    “I believe your spine responds to music in a way that it might not respond to visuals. That sound can reach inside you in a very primal way. I like to create these sonic resorts that people can walk into and never leave their chair.”— Tori Amos

    Tori talks about A Piano — and pleads the 5th on the new album — in the November 2006 issue of Performing Songwriter. Thanks to zed / meade for letting us know about this.


    Q Magazine Article (December 2006)

    Friday, November 03, 2006 | 21:16 UTC | Posted by Violet | Articles

    “I’m 82, and I’m piloting a small plane that is buzzing the White House in protest of the incumbent president, who has outlawed all live music. I’ve just finished my last show on my last world tour and I run out of gas and crash into the West Wing gardens. That’s a good way to go, no?” — Tori Amos

    This article is from the December 2006 issue of Q magazine in which the dreaded four-letter “K” word is used once again (will it ever stop?) and Tori gets the chance to orchestrate her own demise. Much thanks to Donna K. and menju56 for the transcriptions.

    Mourning Glories. With the High Priestess of Kook Tori Amos.

    “Some people think they’re leading spooky lives and yet, when you’re getting carted off into prisons, I think it’s a very different reality than going off to college, dressing up and having a margarita party.” — Tori Amos

    “You could say I’ve had my cake and eaten it,” she smiles. “It’s been one hell of a battle but then being at war in one way or another was clearly my destiny. And I wouldn’t be the person I am now without that.”

    The Independent profiles A Piano: The Collection in its October 27th edition.
