The Polyphonic Spree Quotes
"It was just an idea, something I'd been thinking about for quite a long time whilst in my previous band Tripping Daisy. It started off as wishful thinking - in this part of the song rather than having a guitar playing I'd love to have a flute playing this line, something really subtle and sweet, and at this crescendo it would be great to have a harp going on."
"All my inspiration for this group is a lifetime of music that I've grown up with - I listen to the first records I ever bought as a kid and I'm hearing them in The Polyphonic Spree. At the time when I was growing up a lot of orchestral sunny pop was happening - Fifth Dimension, Beach Boys, Wings. That's what the Polyphonic Spree is - it's pretty sunny music, but it also has a rock side to it as well. I grew up going through Yes, through Pink Floyd, then I moved into metal where it was Judas Priest, UFO, Black Sabbath - Ozzy was an influence on me singing back when I had a heavy metal band."
