NICK LOWE ON SONGWRITING by Jim Windolf

Still the Jesus of Cool: the British singer-songwriter-producer Nick Lowe, as rendered by Austin-based artist Guy Juke for a limited-edition poster.

“The whole songwriting process is very, very mysterious,” says Nick Lowe. “Most songwriters don’t know how it works, and if they did, they’d do it nonstop. But you just can’t. You can try, but it’s generally not much good. It’s dissatisfying and it hurts, if you just keep doing it.”

Lowe’s career in music goes all the way back to the mid-1960s. When I spoke with him the other day (the full interview appears after the jump), I was surprised to learn he had been part of the same Hamburg scene that had been a rock-and-roll boot camp for the Beatles. But it could be argued that Lowe has done his best work from the mid-90s onward, with his last four albums—The Impossible Bird; Dig My Mood; The Convincer; and At My Age—all of which are filled with elegant, three-minute masterpieces played with an easygoing, late-night feel.
