Lucky Boys Confusion Quotes
I was in a band with Ryan called Farm Boy and Adam and Joe were in a band called Spinning Jenny and we played a show together and our band broke up relatively soon after our first show and I just got together with Adam and we started writing songs. We thought it was some of the best work we've ever done so we asked the other guys to join us. Jason was a mutual friend. And here we are.
Early influences are.. Mostly just Indian music. Um.. Nirvana, some of the grunge stuff and then The Beatles, Bob Marley, Sublime, Peter Tash, Beastie Boys, The Clash... Later on.. Well, I stay pretty current with music so.. I guess the new stuff that's out that I like is Bright Eyes, Distillers.. I like My Chemical Romances album. I like The Obsoletes, The Matches, Muse, Head Automatica, Atmosphere, The Faint. There's just so much good music out there.
Well, Adam and I have very different styles of writing but when we come together we have a pretty cohesive idea of where to go with the music.. All the other guys come from different backgrounds and are just really solid players so we don't have to sit there and explain the songs to them. They get them right away. We just have the same goals. We're trying to write catchy songs that have the same artistic value.
...we both write lyrics and melodies. I come up with the idea of the chord progression and melody and the lyrics going and he'll write a new part to it. He'll write the melody, the music and most of the lyrics for it. And if he doesn't like some of my lines or I don't like some of his lines then we work to fix it. We make a pretty good team, but we also crash a lot. But that makes good music.
