JG Owen Owen makes cover of independent ‘zine, talks about “Good Friends, Bad Habits” February 18, 2010March 1, 2017 admin In the cover story of independent ‘zine Manual Dexterity, Mike Kinsella of Owen gives an in-depth interview about his latest album New Leaves and his journey as a first-time father. He also talks to the ‘zine about the “Good Friends, Bad Habits” video. MANUAL DEXTERITY: Did you come up with the concept for the “Good Friends, Bad Habits” video? Was it difficultto lip-synch your songs with all the movement around you? Do you plan on doing any other videos for the songs off of New Leaves? MIKE KINSELLA: Yeah. I had the rough “photo booth” idea and then Joe Wigdahl built the set and organized the whole thing. Lip-synching was easy. Having multiple friends sitting on my lap all day proved to be more strenuous than I had thought it would be. As for other videos, hopefully! But nothing planned at the moment.
