"If you live there, then you slowly die." That's how Brandon Welchez,
frontman and beat programmer for drone-pop duo Crocodiles, describes his band's
hometown of San Diego. "A lot of the nastiness in our music comes from reacting
to the boring culture there, and the sunshine," adds guitarist Charles Rowell.
"The sunshine can be oppressive."
Obviously I disagree.
In other 'get over yourself' news, Wavves finally spoke about the meltdown in Barcelona on Pitchfork.
Even before Barcelona, there were shows just like that, where it was just a mess and it fucking sucked. But it was to like 25 people in Little Rock, Arkansas or something. I don't really know what to say, but the fact of the matter is that I'm not really that good. I wouldn't say that I'm really like a guitar guy or anything like that. I can get by on the stuff that I play. I like writing and playing the songs. If people think that I'm not going to fuck up, then they're wrong. And if they think this is like the last time I'm going to fuck up, they're wrong too. Because I'm young. I'm kinda stupid. I'm human.
