Les Inrocks : In ten years, you've multiplied prestigious collaborations. What does it bring you?
Brian Molko : Again, this is an incredible opportunity to be able to work with artists who inspired me - and continue to inspire me. Having the voice of Jane Birkin and mine on the same track (on Smile from the latest album by Jane Birkin), it's important… We will sing with The Cure at Wembley after tomorrow, we should do Without You I'm Nothing. When you sing on stage with Franck Black or Bowie, you want to tell the world "hey hey… Fuck you". There are certainly people on this Earth who think that I am a poor guy, but these collaborations make me think that I'm not doing too bad. And this little voice in my head tells me all the time:''You are a shit, you are a charlatan, you are mediocre…'' Well, in duets like this, it tends to be a little more discreet.
