What a nice surprise to find out that Andrew VanWyngarden, the lead singer of MGMT was doing an appearance on WFMU’s comedy show “Seven Second Delay” at the UprightCitizens Brigade Theater in New York on November 17, 2010. Andrew was cool enough to sign a photo that I took of him and I earlier this summer prior to the taping. Thanks Andrew! I’ve met a lot of rockstars this year and meeting him has definitely been a highlight. I love MGMT’s music a lot! The interview was really funny as the hosts Ken and Andy pretended not to know anything about MGMT. They pronounced the band as “Mega-ment” and even subjected Andrew VanWyngarden to a band playing a cover of their huge hit “Kids.”
The looks on Andrew’s face were priceless! He also mentioned that he wrote a song today tentatively called “In The Afternoon,” has recently seen (and loved) the movie “Enter The Void,” and talked about hoping to get the chance to record with Sir Paul McCartney. VanWyngarden also mentioned that Brian Eno’s management (pun definitely intended) got in touch to say that Brian Eno likes their album “Congratulations,” which is super cool! He even sang a few bars of the first song he ever wrote “The Land of Hands.” Do videos of most of these topics exist? You bet they do. Perhaps if I get 5,000 people to like this website on Facebook, I’ll post it. I can wait. The footage doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.
