"Winnebago is about nothing at all."
THE COLOUR AND THE SHAPE
"There is a song called 'The Colour And The Shape' we were going to put on the record (TCATS ). It was almost like another 'Weenie Beenie' sort of song, just another screaming, fast, hardcore song, but we decided not to put it on, because it was a step backwards, we've done that already!"
"Requiem was the first Killing Joke record I bought. That guy's one of my vocal heroes, it sounds like he drank a bottle of sulphuric acid and decided to get onstage and belt it out."
FRIEND OF A FRIEND
"We only recorded it (for the 97 BBC session) because we couldn't remember the words to a Kansas song."
"My mom's brown Ford Maverick, AM radio playing, mom with leather sandals on - going to yoga class. It brings back some pretty fond memories."
HAVE A CIGAR
"We chose that song because it's the most punk rock thing Pink Floyd ever did."
"We did that for just a goof. It was funny. We started playing it first. We were going to cover it and we just started playing it first, and we just played it like they play it like a swamp rock version. So then we started doing this weird Janes Addiction, Jesus Lizard version of it and we'd listen to the music of it, and I'd go into the control room and I'd keep singing it over and over again and Dave's like, "You sing it! You fucking asshole, I don't want to learn the fucking lyrics, you sing it!" - Taylor
“That was the first time that I ever sang a vocal for real in a studio. I was really nervous but once I did it, it gave me a lot more confidence. I was like, ‘wow, I can do this if I just double the fuckin’ thing. Sounds pretty good.’” - Chris
