"We were actually in a band together, and Halou was more or less a side project. It seemed to be really one of those situations where our other group was a true band and everyone contributed their part to it. And it didn't necessarily all come out the way we wanted it to. But I don't think anyone really had the guts to sort of say 'Hey, this isn't really quite what I think it could be.'
For me, I have to say [laughs] that maybe I'm a bit of a snob. There are two main things. One is that as a producer and an engineer, my ears are very sensitive and there is a sonic difference in what you download online versus a CD. And I find it pathetic that CD's have been around for 20 years, and the format that we use online is actually lower sound quality that what we came up with over 20 years ago. We're not moving forward, we're moving back. I don't think people want that, but somehow or another a few people have decided that being able to download something quickly is more important so that's the way it's going to be.
