we like people like Iggy Pop, Steve Albini, the White Stripes. not just for the music they made/make but because of their reasons behind it. music doesn't have to be pretty or nice. it should be natural. sometimes it should be a kick in the head. we're a live band. we LOVE playing live. we want it to be an experience as much as it is a performance. we don't know how we're going to play our music until we've played it. it makes things fun. this isn't something to be preserved, it's meant to be a moment in time.
