"He Sounds Like the Old Mad Richard"

"Some years ago, Ashcroft was diagnosed with depression and prescribed Prozac but he is scathing about the modern rush to diagnosis. 'You have a few bad days and suddenly it's a "condition". It's a multibillion business with the meds. But I'm fortunate that instead of brooding and going downhill, there is an outlet. It's not primal-scream therapy but get in a room with a guitar and two chords, pour out the poisons and you'll feel a whole lot better.'"

Dave Simpson in The Guardian talks with Richard Ashcroft of the new album, These People.
