J Mascis is god, but he’s also a notoriously difficult interview; he’s known for being reticent and awkward and prickly. But maybe that’s just the milieu of the exchange? Maybe he’d be a bit more comfortable talking to someone not necessarily concerned with professional demeanor? Here, Candace, of Portland’s fine feminist bookstore Women & Women First (aka Fred Armisen of Portlandia), does a brief segment with J, and the results are … no worse than any Spin interview with the man, frankly. Her questions leave a bit to be desired, but she closes with the one we’ve been waiting to hear addressed for some time now. Watch and learn.
