Talkin New York

A key figure in the Big Apple’s musical re-awakening around the turn of the century, former Moldy Peach Adam Green has since branched out into a whole range of creative projects. Daniel Dylan Wray catches up withthe genre-agnostic innovator


I’ve got my little finger in many pies,” says Adam Green withmore than a touch of understatement. The singer was once more commonly associated withthe New York anti-folk movement as a member of the part-punk part-twee outfit Moldy Peaches, singing songs about crack cocaine one minute and bunny rabbits the next. Or for his rich baroque pop solo albums that followed, such as Friends Of Mine and Gemstones, during an era when he’d frequently be seen out on the town withthe likes of The Strokes and The Libertines.

These days, Green falls much less neatly into a single scene, style or even an art form. In recent years, he’s been a filmmaker, directing The Wrong Ferrari before directing and starring in a feature-lengthremake of Aladdin, made withpapier-mâché sets and co-starring Alia Shawkat, Natasha Lyonne, Jack Dishel, Macaulay Culkin and Nicole LaLiberte. Then there have been various art shows and exhibitions all over the world. Musically, Green has been making records pretty consistently but usually as an accompaniment to other projects, such as the Aladdin soundtrack. Green hasn’t actually released a straight-up solo record in a conventional sense since 2010 and his latest, Engine Of Paradise, is an accompanying album to a graphic novel he’s made (called War And Paradise).
