“Yeah, after having played together so long, is there a lot discussion before constructing a song or does it just happen?
JB: Nah, it’s just rock & roll—or it’s just art-punk—you just play. I guest there’s discussion indirectly. If we’re talking about Link Wray or Black Flag or such, it sometimes can have an influence. But mostly, it’s just playing and playing until something sounds good. Then, the next day, you come in and remember whatever is significant enough to remember.
There was the hurricane that was coming and never came, and we have an instrumental that’s called “Zimgar,” but originally it was called “Irene.” It has a brooding, foreboding vibe, like the storm is coming. So sometimes it’s whatever is going on that week.”
