On Nathan Williams' aka Wavves' website, Ghost Ramp, he tagged the post about this The Drone documentary "MASTURBAITING." More than a misspelling, it's actually a quite literal description: there is a lively, begging-to-be-quoted conversation about Billy jerking off in the van while people were in there, which grosses us out, but the don't-give-a-fuckness is also kind of G. Don't-give-a-fuckness is generally how people think about Wavves, and while the haphazard party steez definitely falls under that category, this guy is also one of the hardest working dudes around, and obviously gives enough of a shit to make a grip of songs that make us feel glad to be alive. Nathan also discusses "the meltdown" (it's called punk rock, people, ever heard of it? also, drugs) and how "indie doesn't mean fucking shit." WORD EM UP NATHAN.
