Personal Quotes (4)

[on the group lifestyle] I'm a band monogamist [for] practical reasons. It's like, when you're married you live longer. It's better for your health. It keeps things less complicated.
In my opinion, real punk bands should break up after one album. Philosophically that would be the best thing. But it's in the declaration of punk independence to not be a bloated rock star where you end up in a limo. You pick something and then end it.
[observation 2014, on the nostalgic tone of recent recordings] I was just trying to make songs that were kind of catchy and not boring. Three of the songs on 'Wig Out at Jagbags' are about nostalgia specifically. They're more like directly referencing what I love about the music I hear. The rush that you feel when that music connects with your soul. Like young love or the first time you do heroin.
I can pretty much come up with anything if you give me time. Just like a monkey with a typewriter, you know - something good could come up eventually.
