It's all lies. It's that kind of lynch-mob mentality that always wants someone's head to roll—that's the angry mob. And, to be honest, it just sounded really cool."

 

   

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club | Creating Space

Written by Dave Jasmon Sunday, 15 April 2007 14:01

baby81We got into music to change the world, you know? To change everything. And we're still of that opinion, but you can't really force that upon anybody, that thought. We're just trying to figure out what's best for us, and what's best for us is to live in the world the way we want to live, the best we can, and let everyone else breathe.

"I guess I'm inescapably a product of the Midwest," he says. "There's an element of wanting to write about what you know about. St. Louis just has a character and a history that interests me and, also, is familiar with me."

...when you deliver a song you want that song to have a clean, cohesive package, and these days, for me anyway, I like the idea of having a clean, cohesive album. Too much combination could take away from the album, make the album feel more like a compilation, you know? It's just a matter of figuring out the right way to do it.

"There's a contrast between the negative lyrics and, like, chirpy birds and rainbows and sparkles. I think that's more of a menacing outlook than watching something really, really horribly depressing or listening to some really, really negative stuff that sounds like the devil. It's something more vicious."

Written by Leslie Wilson Tuesday, 13 February 2007 03:58

The Hold Steady | Born to Kick Your Ass

Written by Jeremy Goldmeier Wednesday, 29 November 2006 16:00

Steppin' Out With the Kooks

Written by Laura Hamlett Wednesday, 29 November 2006 03:25

prof_kooks_smIt's always about a feeling, isn't it? If you feel something is not right, you don't do it. And if something feels right and someone puts a great idea forward, then you embrace it and you try and make it your own; you develop it. With the music side of things, we all write songs anyways, so we all know how a song works, 'cause we all know how a good song sounds and ways to reach it up a bit.
