Interview: Xiu XiuMonday 6th September, 2010 11:24AM
It's been only a few short years since Xiu Xiu first hit our shores in 2006 to play a sparsely attended but lively show in Auckland. But a whole lot has happened since then - added to the three albums and countless other releases, tireless live touring and rampant collaboration with artists like Grouper, Larsen and Shearwater, line up changes including the departure of Caralee McElroy and the recruiting of latest member Angela Seo have meant the band has constantly and continually evolved. The one constant throughout has been the central figure of Jamie Stewart, who was kind enough to talk with Undertheradar's Paul Gallagher from his home in the United States in the rush of preparations before departing for a hectic 3-month long touring schedule that - starting with Australia and New Zealand - will see Xiu Xiu travelling extensively to most corners of the the globe.
