do you think bands listen to their own music the way they listen to other bands music?
whether he ever got fed up of hearing his own albums over and over again. His reaction was a very quick "fuck yes".
I'd hate to be in a band and not create a sound that I was 100& happy with which would be very difficult.
if it's anything more recent then it's pretty impossible to not continually criticise everything about it and question whether it could be better. That said though, I probably do that a little when I listen to other bands' music too, as I'm trying to figure out how it works/what I could conceivably get away with ripping off.
I only write what I'd want to listen to... all the rest gets trashed pretty quickly.
Then again, I get detached from seeing it as my own music pretty quickly as well, which helps...
because he makes comments like that
I mean I'll listen to something over and over after I've recorded it 'cos
a) I want to be sure it sounds good and doesn't get boring quickly.
b) I'm trying to work out whether it's got everything it needs on there, and also where to put it on albums or EPs etc.
My LastFM's awful - I look like a total egotisit but it mostly is just checking over work.
That said I wouldn't make music unless it was music I'd want to listen to myself.
