Lightning Bolt: Interview by Ryan
2. What do you think about The Band? ( yeah,
Robbie Robertson and company, Up On Cripple Creek etc.)...
3. Do you have any advice for (hypothetically)
a person who wants to start a band and whose goal is to do what Erase
Errata is doing as far as touring, releasing records, writing songs
all: yes, be proactive about touring, releasing,
etc, be friends, have fun, be prepared to put the rest of yr life on
4. For me, music makes me high, it also helps
me through the bad times (the Beatles n'all that) and it enpowers me
a bit, gives me a purpose of sorts... It has deep spiritual qualities
that I can't quite explain... What does music do to (for) you?
jenny: it's a big release
sara: it's a physical, social, emotional activity
all in one.
ellie: i agree.
5. The future for Erase Errata brings a summer
tour, some days on The Oops tour (shameless self promotion, sorry...)
and then some dates with Sonic Youth! then... a tour of Europe, which
from what I gather will be very exciting... Can you tell me any details
about these events?
6. Is there anything you would like to say about
the current music situation? The Strokes? The Locust? Le Tigre? US Maple?
Pink And Brown? Eminem (who is plastered all over Europe right
now...) Where is music at?
Bianca- I think music is in a really great place
right now and is only going to get better.
Ellie- I think music is in a really scarry place
right now. Just thinking about Clear Channel makes me want to puke.
Though the underground scene seems to be thriving.

1.) What do you think about Stockhausen describing
the terrorist attacks on NYC as "a great work of art." *
well honestly, i dont want to answer this one.
i mean with the clamp down on peoples "freedom" i could get
into trouble for sharing my opinion. but i will say that im not in support
of war of any kind. especially the kind with any religious horse shit
motive. nor am i a fan of the blind followers of bush. all i have to
say is karma is hitting hard.
* (At a press conference on the 17th of September,
Stockhausen was asked whether Luzifer, a character in Licht, was a historical
figure or a myth.. Stockhausen said that Luzifer was real and cited
the Attacks on USA as evidence. He went on to say, metaphorically, that
Luzifer had seemed to achieve his greatest work of art through the painstaking
planning, devastaition and mass killing of the attacks.
A Journalist for the NDR, selectively used some
of Stockhausn's comments out of context in a high profile report that
hugely embarrased the Sponsors of the Hamburg Festival. Quite deliberately,
the NDR report had made no mention of the character Luzifer (the context
of the quote) , and thus the report said that Stockhausen thought the
terrorist attack was "The Greatest Work of Art Ever".)
2.) What is the LEAST hip music that has influenced
im not sure what "hip" is. maybe arab
on radar? or yes?

rolling donut collects no frost."?

who get hooked up.
5.) Do you guys ever play or want to play any
other type of music?
well gabe and i have this country band called
THE GOD DAMN TUMBLEWEEDS. so yea. i really want to play drums for a
live hip hop band too.
6.) Why do you keep refusing Mr. Pottymouth's
advances? I hear he has quite the thing for you.
