The last two records I liked playing a lot.
It's really hard for me to sing and play bass.
I mean, I don't even think of myself as a musician, really.
I just happened to start playing music for the conceptual ideas.
Anyone becomes mannered if you think too much about what other people think.
I try not to think too much about what the audience is thinking and what they think I should do.
I just think that playing bass, like punk rock bass with a pick, wasn't meant to be done for 25 years.
Unless you're singing something that's kind of in rhythm with the bass, the melodies, it's just difficult.
You know, we have our own audience, and it's not like - they just know we're not going to do certain things.
But everything has been so gradual that it's sort of all come from, just hard work and basically being at it.
