forgot what a great song this is.

“if i want a sound, i usually feel better if i’ve chased it and killed it, skinned it and cooked it. most things you can get with a button nowadays. so if i was trying for a certain drum sound, my engineer would say: “oh, for christ’s sake, why are we wasting our time? let’s just hit this little cup with a stick here, sample something, and make it bigger in the mix, don’t worry about it.” i’d say, “no. i would rather go in the bathroom and hit the door with a piece of two-by-four very hard.”
