Dostoyevsky Wannabe Meets Dostoyevsky Wannabe

Ahead of a screening of the movie Slacker at Manchester music venue Yes, we thought we'd re-post an interview from a couple of years ago that we conducted with Brecht Andersch the actor who played the original Dostoyevsky Wannabe in the movie. Brecht talks about the music and film-making scenes in late 80s-early 90s Austin, Texas and there's also a mention of the sadly recently departed Daniel Johnston alongside many more stories of the film itself and the collective of people who were involved.
