Frank Black Interviewed In

Here. Watch the silly ad and then read Thompson ramble like this:

...We just go into a room, plug in a bunch of amps and come up with a repertoire. That's how it is. In the arena of entertainment, we are trying to have fun and be entertaining via this thing called rock music, popular music or whatever. And that's it.

I think there are probably not enough people making music that allows their personalities to be what they are, to be there as part of the art. Which is necessary, I think, for cool music. It doesn't matter what kind of music it is; it has nothing do to with that. It's really about saying, "Hey, I have a personality and I'm not going to keep it hidden." Too many people are trying too hard to be something that they're not, and no one really believes it.
