Yeah, well it depends because we have a thirty minute show and a fifty minute show and an hour, but I've got them on the computer so we can just print out the sets and slap 'em up on the monitors and that way you can go and you also have a reference because if you didn't know how long you've been playing you can look and see where you are, because you're on different tours, different nights, different venues, different time slot every time, but last night in Sydney we just stuck maybe fifteen songs together, but we didn't stick to it, but we'll play as many songs as we can fit into a set, within reason.
We had a couple of bands come up to us, one in particular a band called Revus, they were these kids who came up and introduced themselves and everything and saying they couldn't believe they were playing with us and everything, but we were opening up for them. It was like a four band show and we were second or third. I thought for a second "Well that's kinda nice, but I wonder if they're full of shit!?"
I play a little guitar, but I write more than I play on stage because Troy is the man. It's kind of hard to play guitar around someone like that, but he tolerates me, but it's kind of hard because you have to stop yourself once you start recording because the way we like to record is very simple. The first record was done in two weeks, done, then we took our two inch tapes and we went to New York and we met Kevin Shirley, who's from here and Kevin mixed our record, but when we walked in, we walked in with three two inch reels of tape. This was 1999 and ProTools was around! We used a little bit of ProTools, but the way we do it is we keep everything on two inch.
