Jeff Klein Interview at PopMatters
The Hustler was recorded over an about a month’s time in New Orleans on a suggestion from Dulli, an idea Klein is definitely thankful for. “Dulli said that this is where you need to make this record, and I took his word on it and he was right — New Orleans is so entrancing, so dark and evil, it’s great. There is so much culture and definitely a more respected history and so much decadence. People selling drugs, prostitutes, churches and porn shops — it was just a mix of everything, religion, voodoo and jazz. So much heritage, it’s hard to not just feel it”.
