Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter)." Casablancas also released a new trailer clip for Tyranny today (which can be seen up top).
" It's a balmy afternoon in Los Angeles and Casablancas, unspeakably hip frontman of New York rockers The Strokes, is discussing his long-running battle with booze.
So he took the fateful decision to go on the wagon (for the record, he isn't being coy when he professes utter ignorance of "teetotal" -- tellingly, it's not a word that crops up very often in fashionable corners of Manhattan).

I'd read a little of him in school, I guess -- we did a bit of Picture of Dorian Gray. "It's been blown out of proportion," he says of his upbringing, which included a stint at Institut Le Rosey, the Swiss finishing school which counts the offspring of Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon, Aristotle Onassis and Winston Churchill as past-pupils (it's where he met future Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr).
