1 Percussive guitar


1 I hope it isn't entirely my songwriting but it may be. We've had a few songs that have done well on the radio but my songs don't 'test' very well when they test markets, so I guess that's what's happened. My songs are like a three-legged dog - you have to get to know them to have any love for them.
2 We just enjoy ourselves and I think the tightness comes from just knowing each other. No two takes in the studio ever sound the same either, when we're in there, so it's sort of the same thing. No two nights repeat themselves too much.
3 A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other... maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.
4 Good music is good music, and everything else can go to hell.
5 I go back to South Africa at least once a year, sometimes twice, and usually for a month. And probably, I'm guessing, I'll spend more time back there as I get older. South Africa gives me a perspective of what's real and what's not real. So I go back to South Africa to both lose myself and gain awareness of myself. Every time I go back, it doesn't take long for me to get caught into a very different thing. A very different sense of myself. It's a melting pot, southern Africa. You find these cultural collisions that result in art and music, and it's pretty amazing.
