“…Stuff that sounds unfinished. Then you can get in there. If it’s too beautiful, too produced, I back off a little, start gettin’ intimidated. You heard the Replacements? They seem broken, y’know? One leg is missing. I like that. Songs scrawled on a wall with a nail. –The Pogues, Henry Rollins– local kid. He’s bush. Primitive… I like that kind of vitality. It’s an important musical force and it ain’t been stolen yet. You can’t just step into it and try it on like a hat or a cape. You can’t put it on like a disguise. I like music that feels like it’s growing somewhere.”

–Tom Waits
