Half Japanese Quotes
When we're doing stuff with the band, I always chose the best songs I have at that time. I don't hold back, thinking 'this is going to be for a solo project.' It's more in terms of time restraints than anything else. If we're working within a set period of time, that's what I'm focused on then. From my end, it's the exactly the same. The only difference in working with other people is that they've got their job to do. But my job is the same.
I very much like the first album, Half Gentlemen/Not Beasts and Charmed Life and Hot- those are my three favorites. I just think we were on during that time period in the studio. And so much of that hinges on how you're feeling when you go into the studio. You're just in there for three or four days. You go in there high and in peak form or you just go in there normal or you're feeling bad. So, it's kind of chancy.
We're able to keep a raw sound just because we never rehearse. The band members live such a far distance from each other. I spend most of my time in Michigan and Maryland. John is up in the New York area. Gilles is living in Switzerland. Mick lives in London. It's such a distance that we're not able to rehearse so of course it's going to keep a kind of rawness to it.
