Some choice quotes from the interview.
On Big Top Halloween:
Man, we just didn’t have the know-how or the ability at that particular time. We were kind of stupid. We threw the kitchen sink at it – we listened to a lot of different kinds of music. There are our attempts at funk, blues, country music (laughs), heavy metal, punk rock. It was literally, like, splattering paint all over a canvas and trying to make something out of it.
On “Let Me Lie to You”:
I remembered thinking that was a song that was going to go on (Congregation) and if anyone at Sub Pop tried to talk me out of it…well, that just wasn’t going to happen.
For one thing, [with Debonair] I was trying to nick the opening riff to I Want You Back by the Jackson 5, which was the first song that really made an impression on me.
