Schizophrenic sounds so much more fun. I guess playing our music is a sort of alternative reality that mick and I enter. Definitely when playing shows it feels this way. I don't consider anything we do to be all that technical or difficult.
I grew up in Washington DC so I can't avoid being influenced by punk bands from here. James Canty from Nation of Ulysses will always be the drummer who most impressed me, but I don't think I really tried to sound like him or anything. I spent a years improvizing a lot, totally free noise kind of stuff. I like modern classical with Xenakis and Ligeti being some of my favorites.
