Where people listen
Eric Avery always had this funky thing to his bass playing, but he was also into classical music, or straight-up punk or arty outsider rock. The name stuck, and we brought it into and onto the record. Eric, Perry and I were all dealing with the same demons at different times and not talking to each other about it, which was really weird.
