Getting To Know: clipping.

OUR LEAST FAVORITE THING IN THE UNIVERSE


Right now, it’s interviews. Nothing personal, we’ve just been doing a lot of them and we’re pretty sure no one reads them. If you’re reading this, you get a free T-shirt (not really). - JONATHAN SNIPES

 

ON THE ROAD

 

We got stuck in completely stop-and-go traffic on the Autobahn for four hours. We listened to a lot of Radiolab. What were you expecting? We’re adults. - Jonathan

Yeah. We don’t really have any crazy drug and/or groupie stories. - William

 

DREAM COLLABORATION


Cecil Taylor, Enya and Suga Free. - William

Diamanda Galas, Busta Rhymes and Xinyu Qian. - Jonathan

E-40, George Clinton and Anna Meredith. - Daveed

 

 

BEST SHOW EVER


Hasn’t happened yet, and probably won’t. We’re ultra-critical, and hate both ourselves and each other. (Not really.)

 

WORST SHOW EVER


We once played for a bunch of little kids in the afternoon at a self-proclaimed “anarchist” coffee shop. The proprietor of this for-profit “anarchist” business was really upset about how much Daveed used the word “bitch.” I didn’t realize how many rules anarchists have about what language is OK. - Jonathan

 

IDEAL SITUATION FOR SOMEONE TO LISTEN TO OUR MUSIC


So loud that you’re instantly deafened by the first beat, so you don’t hear the rest of the track. or anything else again ever. 

 

WE’LL KNOW WE’VE MADE IT WHEN…
