From the Eastsport Cafe at Lollapalooza ’08: Jamie Lidell

The eloquent, crafty British mishmash auteur chats about the evolution of his sound and, um, interacts with our August cover star, Duffy.

For years, Jamie Lidell performed live as a one man digital wrecking crew, frenzied behind a table of synths and wires, spitting out verses. Now, to best present tunes from his latest album, Jim, Lidell invited a slew of solid session musicians to join the fray, something he discussed with’s Peter Gaston in the SPIN Studio at the Eastsport Café at Chicago’s Hard Rock Hotel. And check the 3:50 mark for a rather hilarious moment with Jamie and our current cover artist, Duffy.
