My girlfriend at the time convinced me to send these songs to Cavity Search. When they wanted to put out my record I was totally shocked.
I like home recordings and studio recordings just as much as each other - I don't think one is better - but for this record I wanted to see what I could do in a real studio with real producers.
I rode on a float in one of the parades in Mississippi. It's an experience.
Well, I try not to think about the general public since I have no idea what the general public is and I don't think anybody does.
The band's filter, but playing live is a lot of fun.
I don't really like New York better than Portland. It's just a different place.
It was kind of ridiculous to carry it up to a certain point and then drop the ball or the bomb, like quitting the band right after we had signed to Virgin.
It's just that a lot of songs that are popular right now, they don't have any meaning.
