Hanspeter Kuenzler has interviewed some of the world's biggest stars and - rarely the same - some of the most interesting artists around. All are recordedon cassette, minidisc or MP3, and are available for use in print media andradio. The palette ranges from Fela Kuti to Elton John and Arctic Monkeys, Annette Peacock to Thom Yorke and Flaming Lips, and from Louis Moholo to P.J. Harvey. The collection today contains 2000+ interviews. For twenty-five years, Hanspeter Kuenzler has also kept an archive ofmusic- and arts-related material from the UK press. This archive now contains several thousand wallets stuffed with old-skool newspaper clippings - much easier to peruse than a Google-list of links!
