Zitat des Tages von Kristin Hersh:
Nirvana was pop. You can have distorted guitars and people say it's alternative, but you can't break out of pop music's constructs and still get extensive radio play and media coverage.
Most of the younger people I knew didn't seem to have a handle on things; they hadn't found their place, they didn't understand how the world works, they didn't understand how to treat other people, and they didn't know how to stop thinking about themselves.
I don't like what the radio plays for the most part.
To do it nationally or internationally, you have to follow a few more rules.
I don't mind what the market is, but why is it vapid? If they're such a bunch of idiots, why don't you show them good music instead? They're not going to know the difference.
We need a day of the dead. That's a perfect celebration.
We didn't really swallow much of the Jesus thing, but we got the vocab.
I don't like the idea of famous people.
I felt like it was a great secret when I found out that I could be in my 30s.
That's my dream job, to be able to mail songs out to people who want to hear them. Paste my face on them and not travel all over the world trying to sell them.
The songs become the show, which is how it should be.
I don't have the inclinations that other people seem to have as far as the business is concerned.
I would go to radio stations and they were supposed to be interviewing me and playing my record and they would say, We're playing too many women right now, we can't play your record.
You have to follow every melodic line, every emotional idea, or you don't get your money's worth.
MP3's are perfect.
Popular music sucks so bad right now.
I'm beginning to think I have two years encountering sexism without really realising it.
I guess I'll just slip into the studio after the next time with the Muses, and then just keel over and die.
I've always chosen my band members based on their sense of humor. It might sound stupid, but it means not only are they fun to live with on a tour bus for years, but humor implies intelligence.
My brother and I were meditating before we were 6 years old, having to stare at the wall and chant.
The songs keep on writing themselves, and I really love them. It's as close as I get to a religion.
Men are allowed to write songs about people and women are allowed to write songs about women.
My parents didn't treat me as if there was anything in the world I couldn't do, except be unkind.
