I don't always like to think of the stream-line that has led to a place sometimes, though. I usually like to just let it come through me and do its thing. In a way, I might have nothing to do with it at all. In that sense, completely an organic process.
I like that. And yes, we did feel like making more drum-shifts on this album, getting structured like 'Aphrodite', and such. But song building has never just been loose for us. We've always worked on structure and design. It's our city-scape that lends toward new existence. You can actually see it, for the most part. One result of your Berlin period, and the live shows you played in Europe around that time, was that I think the Sixteens are now quite a high profile band on the Euro-underground.
That might seem a bit paradoxical How can a band be high profile while also being underground? You'd hit your head on the roof! Does it seem to you that things are starting to build up?
Yeah, I can dig that. I've hit my head a few times in the process! Who's Community People - Sixteens - Casio open up that darned latch up there?! He hadn't seen us in a long, long time, and was really impressed and couldn't stop mentioning it. Like, 'You've come a long way, baby! So, it really has to do with everything else, and everyone else involved, Work Your Magic (Deep Zone Project Dance Remix) - Koldun* - Work Your Magic. Certainly, the crowd you got at the Drop Dead Festival in Prague was big, the reaction was good, and afterwards, when I looked at the discussions on the Drop Dead forum it seemed that the one band that everybody mentioned favourably was the Sixteens.
That was quite an achievement, since there didn't appear to be any general agreement as to which other bands were good or bad. But I felt that the Drop Dead festival crew didn't realise you had a certain profile, you'd worked your way up to a certain level in Europe. It was as if they still thought of the Sixteens as an obscure Californian art-rock outfit - and so you ended up going on stage very early in the day after originally being scheduled for a later slot, as I recall and the set was cut short, to the genuine annoyance of the crowd.
I don't really know what happened there, but it was hard to escape the thought that they'd called it wrong. Why the sudden shift from a late set to an early set? Did the plugs get pulled, or did something break down on stage? Annoyance here, too. We Community People - Sixteens - Casio have played later. It was half-way around the world for us!
We are still friends with these people and love them, but without hurting anyone's feelings, I agree with your take on our stance. Perhaps some people aren't ready to view us as an evolving, and definitely growing band. We would like to apologize to everyone for the set's brevity, but there really was no reason for it. We just got cut off. That night was insane - when I found out we were on stage right after the next song the DJ was playing, I had to run a few blocks out of the club to our apartment, where both Veuve and Andrew our projectionist were sleeping!
Fucking sleeping! And we're on in five minutes! I was punching Fleur Carnivore - Carla Bley - Fleur Carnivore air and pissed, pissed, pisssed! And when we rushed to set-up on stage, another guy had borrowed our keyboard and that made Veuve leave all of his notes back at the apartment!
Now, that's not usual. Nothing technological went wrong after Community People - Sixteens - Casiowe just got a little screwed. Some people missed the show, too, because they were out eating, expecting to catch us later. I required free Vodka Rox for the rest of the night! In a way the situation at the Drop Dead Festival was double-frustrating, because I think the Sixteens represent the way Drop Community People - Sixteens - Casio is trying to go - away from standard deathrock, and off on all sorts of other left-field tangents.
I think that's a good move, because there's a fertile field to Community People - Sixteens - Casio in that area. At Casio, we deliver universal value by making the most of our original ideas, planning capabilities, and advanced technologies to make entirely new Community People - Sixteens - Casio possible.
