SEVEN DEADLY SINS
A series of interviews based on the Seven Deadly Sins from Gig Gossip.
Israeli musician and award-winning animator Izakman released his debut UK single recently so we asked him what his answers to these sins would be…
LUST: Who or what do you find yourself lusting after currently, and why?
Lust for life. I want to join a young arty, edgy hippy commune back in the 1960s, and go crazy.
GREED: What should you be cutting down on, and why?
To buy 60’s guitars and old analogue synthesizers, have a ridiculously large speaker with a fancy tube amplifier in an acoustically treated room for crazy audiophiles like me.
GLUTTONY: What one thing could you happily consume limitless amounts of, and why?
Records! I have a weakness for vinyl’s, especially if they are rare and obscure.
The weirder, the better.
SLOTH: Stop being so lazy! What is the thing you should be putting more effort in to at the moment, and why?
I think I could extend my siestas a little more.
WRATH: Who or what grinds your gears, and why?
Apathy and unawareness. I’m concerned about irresponsible people who leave their trash and harm the environment. I feel I live in a very selfish society that its culture is becoming more and more about meaningless instant gratifications. I hope I can contribute to change it a bit. I have some faith in my generation.
ENVY: Who are you jealous of, and why?
Social media can make me feel jealous of pretty much anyone who gets a lot of likes and engagement. It’s like an automatic impulse that appears before I even understand what the content is about!
PRIDE: Answers on a boast card! What is your proudest achievement?
Some of my favorite artists I got to see live. I have a nice long list that I’m quite proud of.
