I'm not against making a living, ... I get to do art and people say I'm great, occasionally.
We just wanted to make something that we thought was beautiful-sounding and special, ... but how do you go about doing that? I don't know. But as far as sound goes, I don't worry about that. It takes care of itself.
We're realistic about knowing that we're not out to hit the mainstream, ... We're trying to make great music for the time, but not to make timeless music. You just try to make something special.
If I was a betting man, ... I'd say the malls of America wouldn't embrace our type of music anyhow. Let's just say we're a discriminating-palate kind of band.
CRCR ... goodbye to the rock 'n' roll era.
Act like you deserve to win, trade up for a thicker skin.
I guess the majority of people who want to ban certain musicians are the ones who are so proud of everything America stands for.
I'm not sure if you can blame everything on the American way of life, but the United States are big. So, if you have a lot of people there, the percentage of stupid people is bound to be higher.
I think the focus of the media changes. At the moment the more electronic stuff like trip-hop was the flavor of the month, just a little while ago. It all depends on the angle, from which point of view you see it.
If you want to be negative about the whole thing you can say all guitar bands after the Beatles were just a waste of time because the Beatles were the best. I think it's far better to give new records a try.
We're probably a couple of freaks who've created their own little universe, are living in our own little world and that's the only place where we can survive.
A good voice isn't so important. It's more important to sound really unique.
There's no point that an album should sound like a watered down version of another album.
What producers did was mostly recording in the studio, so it never changed our sound just that much.
