The vein I exist in is something more unclear, where I’m dealing with a little invented environment, and many of those ideas about music that people love are not dealt with directly. It’s still a jam for me, but it’s being held together by something else. And not everybody cares about this. So to recognize their needs would be in opposition to where I’m going. I appreciate what they want and sometimes I want the same things. I listen to popular radio! But there’s no way I can compete.
“Fun Dink Death,” from his new “Doo Doo Run” 7-inch on PPM, is his attempting to suture his demented music world with that of a more ever present bubblegum. And, surprisingly, it’s so catchy! But it also sounds like it’s melting.
