A few years and a postponed visit later Moby returns to Morning Becomes Eclectic while in town for the Grammy nominations and to highlight his latest release, 18 - B-Sides (V2 - 2003). He also took the reins as guest DJ playing songs from his personal collection.
During the interview Moby regaled Morning Becomes Eclectic with stories of his get-togethers with music luminaries like New Order and David Bowie. He chose to share what he says is a perfect wedding song, Nick Drake-s Northern Sky as well as his live version of the Radiohead song Creep which was recorded at the 25th Anniversary of the Glastonbury Music Festival in the U.K. Moby also talked about the comedy sketches he films.
A descendant of Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick, Moby holds the distinction, according to The Guinness Book of Records, for releasing Thousand the fastest single ever, clocking in at 1000 beats per minute. Moby is also a restaurateur owning a vegan-dining establishment in New York City called Teany.
