Does anyone else think Squarepusher is a prick?

For a while now (after go-plastic), I have come to dislike Tom, partly because his music has decreased in quality but mainly because of his almost unbearable persona. I mean this guy nearly comes close to Thom Yorke in terms of Douchebaggery, the only thing he could possibly say now that could annoy me further is that he is an enviromentalist.

 

His interviews are just cringeworthy, I think there is one on the BBC around the Hello Everything release, some of his answers must be a joke surely, at one point he was getting all philosophical about apples. In another interview with Mary Anne Hobbs, he just come across as a twat, dissing DnB like any chavbag can make it, MATE... your DnB sounds like a chavbag made it. Your new music is rubbish, it's a mixture of conventional bollocks and cheesy jazz/rock nonsense.

 

Please, you Schizophrenic, just retreat back into your room and make something interesting instead of growing your facial hair you facking sketbag.

From where I'm sitting he has always been true to what he believes in whether its gay or not, and no one could ask for more than that. Perhaps you should stick with ceephax.

 

The marry anne hobbs and culture show interviews are hilarious because he speaks in such a way that neither of the birds interviewing him really have a fucking clue what he's going on about.

He doesn't really come across as a prick on this:

He seems pretty chilled out I reckon, happily agreeing to be a cross between a cliche and a monkey...

 

ye gods, i would fuck the shit out of lauren laverne

I don't think he's a prick, just a bit awkward around people he doesn't know. Which makes sense b/c we've heard nothing but reports of him being in his room all day making tracks

 

so no wonder why he can't function well in social situations, and that's why I think he resorts to the tongue-in-cheek pseudo-intellectual stuff

 

but it's funny :D

It's obvious that some of his quips are tongue-in-cheek, but sometimes when he's being deadly seriously it is hard to like him, simply because one gets the impression he really, really likes the sound of his own voice. I mean, don't get me wrong... it is refreshing to hear an artist in this genre who is actually eloquent, but there is a way of being eloquent, confident and chatty without the negatives Tom sometimes veers towards. Having said that, I much prefer his 'intellectual' approach now to his Go Plastic period, where he just swore a lot, stammered and yeah-ed a lot, and seemed determined to demystify himself and his music as much as possible.

 

I actually really liked him on the BBC culture show, too. He came across as intelligent, very polite, and overall someone you'd want to sit down with for a while discussing absolutely anything (not that he'd want to do that with me.)

 

But other times, such as this Mary Anne Hobbes interview...

 

 

Or his various Go Plastic interviews - they are quite cringeworthy.

I wouldn't say he comes off as unpleasant in any of the interviews I've read or listened to. You don't really think if you were to sit down for drinks with him he'd start jawing off about the thesis behind his music do you?

 

Honestly Squarepusher is absolutely wonderful to his fans, putting out high-quality new records every year or two. I wish RDJ still cared half as much as Tom does about putting out tunes, sequencing the tracks on each album, and putting together a full package with each release.

my impression: tom jenkinson would be great for a B.S. session over a couple beers at the pub, but i would never want to have him as a roommate.

i just get the feeling like i'd wake up one morning and find him trying to cut my toes off, i'd get up and run and he'd chase me. a few hours later he'd timidly apologize for the whole thing, and it would be forgotten... until it happened again, the next week.
