Nobody seems to play Yamaha electrics, but it's the best guitar I own.
It was a good chance for us to play for people who would never have heard us otherwise.
It's great, because different groups of kids can laugh at each other and still enjoy the show.
Experimenting with different sounds is great, but when it comes down to it, you're still playing a guitar.
But the exposure we got by doing the stint with Nine Inch Nails brought us a lot of attention.
I'm happy with the way everyone presents themselves onstage.
We're playing the same songs, the same way, that we have for years.
Each member of the band has varied influences, and the same diversity is reflected in our fanbase.
I just saw metal as another tool for me to use.
I'd played in about four or five bands before we started up, only a couple of which did club dates.
We were like psychedelic folk combined with Sonic Youth's noise.
If you make it sound too much like a synth, it will just sound like a guitar part played on a synth.
Trent likes to record guitars direct, whereas I've always preferred playing through an amplifier.
Micing it from two different angles in front of the speaker sounds huge, and it's so simple.
It all begins with the initial tone coming from the cabinet, but EQ at the board is very important.
I have about nine guitars in all, so obviously I'm into collecting.
I even have a Harmony Rocket and a Stratocaster with a scalloped neck back in Florida.
We'll only be playing four new songs live, but all the material for the next album is basically finished.
There will be some tracks on the next album which that will consist of mostly noise and feedback, whereas others may just have guitar parts and samples.
What you hear about the band is always going to be more disturbing than any particular song.
