New DRWT track

House Show!

at 5:15 AM I realize

a CD snaps perfectly onto the button on top of a baseball hat?

A slight displacement of time

TUESDAY, JUNE 24, 2008
to everyone.
When I say I miss you, I mean it.
When I say I think about you all the time, I mean it.
When I say I love you, I mean it.

I miss you.
I think about you all the time.
I love you.
I mean it.

Matthew Herbert says...

"I still feel that there is too much music in the world. I'm not convinced that we need to make any more music. I read this statistic that said 75% of music on iTunes has never been downloaded once. It's depressing, but it also makes you think that we should stop making music until we listen to it all, and then we should start again. We're in a bit of a muddle about the function of music, and why we're making it, and what we expect from our music. I mean, surely, everything has been said about love already by now. Presumably everything has been said about war already. It feels like people think they have a right to make music or express themselves in a certain way. I think you have a right to express yourself, but I don't necessarily think that there's automatically a right that people should be expected to listen." - Matthew Herbert
