YIKES! : Nardwuar, I'm hoping from the bottom of my soul you have a Michael Jackson interview hidden away in your interviews vault that you're willing to upload soon.

Keith Sweat : i was waiting for "who are you" in the beginning but thats James Brown so thats understandable

Kohowch Kohowch : I genuinely believe Narwuar to be the greatest music journalist of all time. No other music journalist goes as deep into research as he does, and that is well reflected in his lack of the usual fluff questions you hear in most interviews. Plus he's endearing as all hell. Love you Narwuar, keep on rockin' in the free world!

Silly goose : Since you can go back in time, give us something like Nardwuar vs Hendrix next time.
