SXSW 2013 Interview: Kris Harris, Rob Wilks and Jack Tarrant of Story Books

Kent’s Story Books were one of my great discoveries pre-SXSW as I was preparing the TGTF Guide to SXSW 2013 over Christmas holiday. While there were some conversational gems that weren’t recorded – such as how frontman Kris Harris is an avid cider drinker like myself – there is loads more that was recorded in this interview with Harris, fellow Isle of Sheppey native and drummer Rob Wilks and guitarist Jack Tarrant that we did in the lovely bar area of Blackheart club on Rainey Street Thursday afternoon of this year’s SXSW. Listen to the interview below.

You can listen to my interview with Story Books here. […]
