Too much to write about this now folks but check back on this post. Needless to say, it was overwhelmingly cool to sit down with AP on a grey afternoon in Swindon, England. We listened, played, laughed, ate & talked about everything from The Kinks & Captain Beefheart to the making of my fave XTC records. Stay tuned…
“When Steve Conte writes lyrics it’s like he’s in my head and living in my world. He always amazes me with what he comes up with. Songs like “The Bastards Bash,” I had 5-7 different sets of lyrics. I wasn’t happy with any of them, so I asked Steve to help me out. The next day he had some great ideas and we had the song. It’s great to have so many creative guys in the band who are all like-minded, as well. We are all from the same generation of music and like the same bands. I’m actually having a better time now than I’ve ever had!”
