My feeling is that labels are for canned food... I am what I am - and I know what I am.
Sometimes before we make a record I go back and listen to a few. It's equally humbling and uplifting.
So, we just kind of created our own thing and that's part of the beauty of Athens: is that it's so off the map and there's no way you could ever be the East Village or an L.A. scene or a San Francisco scene, that it just became its own thing.
When I get really hammered I take my clothes off. That's a sure sign. It's been a long time since the last time I did that. Probably a year.
