Poison the Well Quotes
The tour’s alright, yesterday was the first show and it was alright, we played like crap though actually. We haven’t played a show together for like seven months and then we had four days to rehearse and then start the tour. It’s pretty cool though, it’s fun. I fell REALLY hard on my back though it was funny. I held it together though pretty good; it was one of those falls where it’s like “Is he going to? He could…No? He fell!”
My dad. He’s a classical French-horn player and there was always musical instruments and everything around the house. I raided his music collection when I was like eleven and they’re still like my favorite records. Led Zeppelin I and The Beatles and they were kind of like crazy and it blew me away. The first tape I ever bought on my own was Iron Maiden’s “Power Slave” when I was eleven. I didn’t think it was that dangerous though because they were kind of prissy too. They’re evil, but in the like theatrical, broad-way shit.
I don’t own a car because I don’t have my license. If I had it, though, I’d probably have one of those mid-seventies Dodge van’s with the one circular window in the back. Bean bag’s only on the inside, even the driver’s seat. Either that or maybe an early 80’s El Camino. I like the crappy white trash kind of cars.
Jeff has a bad situation being someone who both sings and screams. He has never had any formal vocal training, which is important for a lot of people when you tour as much as we have been, so he really hasn't been taking care of his voice.
Most of it's from the touring. A lot of bands either can't or are not willing to tour a lot. For bands like ours, that have no radio play or commercial acknowledgment, touring is really the only way to do it. It hasn't been rapid either. We have been touring consistently for about four years now. It has been pretty steady in my opinion.
We were @#$%& clueless. We thought "hey let's go make a record that we will like and our friends will like" and that was that. In nine days it was done. This new record has been the same thing. We just want to write and play music that we like. If it does as well then we will be stoked.
