Haupt and allan and djaq influence each

about the recording process one thing I
noticed I remember the day their
drumsticks he got his first Tam and
genomic it was a starter kit cool no you
know I don't know if you know Allen but
they were they're doing they're doing
some tours again or something actually
we're playing like an acoustic there's
this place in there's place in Garwood
New Jersey called crossroads and I'm
actually believe I'm actually in
December I think Dan's going to we're
going to see shelter at Cross
in what was it last year I saw Murphy's
Law there which was a good show and loo
from sick of it all was there hanging
out what are you gonna do all right so I
want you guys talk about want you guys
talk about the big blue meanie recording
is that where you guys recorded yes Jay
Kastner right remember that we thought
we'd go in Saturday and walk out Sunday
at least everything about vocals done
right right
it wasn't until hell after dinner that
we even started to track oh my god do
you guys um do you guys remember like
why you actually chose like that place
to record
[Music]
there and I've heard nothing but good
things about it cause like you know why
don't we give it a shot for in a
defensible period coin what's offensive
that someone but somewhere they know you
know they would do a good job and I see
all that the times Inc limini did a
fantastic job
sure yes yes well I always deferred to
stand with a kid to the sound to the
quality of places you know yeah you
would know looking back looking back we
could have got a lot I would say the
next choice

did you guys play shows where did we
play shows what bands did you play with
you guys yeah what's the deal with that
guy PJ you guys had some guy PJ working
for you or something
JP that's right
[Music]
the oldest handler we were we were
different than most bands we were coming
at the time we were playing that new
metal phase yeah yeah I need to sound
like smoothies
well this how like wind biscuits correct
though we as it's been put to me by
close friend of ours John we were years
ahead of our time a little difficult
sometimes for us to fit in on certain
bills yeah I know we played the Birch Hill
nightclub which was aside from dystonia
hood probably the biggest venue in New
Jersey in my opinion I believe there
were some shows up in Hoboken as well I
believe we did a club than a show the
dad old joint what about the state
didn't we plate the seat and we did one
of those iconic places to date it's no
longer there but I'll never forget
l'amour Brooklyn
oh alright so we have a live clip right
now from one of the band's live shows
which I believe was at the Birch Hill
nightclub which was in Old Bridge New
Jersey and this is an oldie but a goodie
Nemeth track is boys of summer Don
Henley's classic track one which a
number of bands have covered including
the Ataris code seven and my personal
opinion I think code seven did did a
really good job on that track when they
covered it the Ataris version is more
commercial but anyway here's thousand
suns take or thousand suns version on
the same track Don Henley's boys of
summer and you're listening to on
pulling cast

what are you guys doing musically now I
know Dan's doing DJ guys talk about that
[Applause]
[Music]
you expand on that LaBelle and like so
like what was your experience like over
there so I'm very saying it's like like
cutthroat is that were you're talking
about in terms of trying to make it for
bands the best most pound you constantly
hear well this song is good for what you
can't say this and that song you're not
allowed to say this in that song and it
just it could be jump you know I think
that's one of the reasons why I love the
band so much because say what we wanted
in our song yeah can't say it that way
are you saying there's politics in the
music yes
music really you guys have any
individual you guys have any plans for
music my goal is to be able to have kid
say to their friends yo my dad's playing
here here tonight let's go let's go
watch and have them come out no cool
smack can I go up slapping up flipping
it rubbing it down I eventually want
action it's the music down here in
Florida just not quite ready but if I do
I just want to play drums and rock
[Music]

you have characterized ourselves as a
rock band or an emo band or what we just
play now dan we were saying what kind of
band did you guys characterize
yourselves as like emo punk rock you can
owe me like to make Beethoven Stephanie
heavy I would to to follow up on what
Dan said like negat really what we were
doing I think we were able to really
showcase a lot of different sounds but
then you have stuff like let it fade
which was like the windows down car like
sound toss about nostalgia song
that was that was written after 9/11
there was a bunch that we didn't record
you know I actually have that I actually
have that you guys did WS so you and I

unique way of writing lyrics which I
always admired wait Alan didn't Alan

drum beats and stuff and then Mike would
do this thing and for some reason I
wrote about Natasha it was like Angel
