with Dave Grohl
"I think Raven was out at a club in Los Angeles, bumps into
Grohly, and they're all getting drunk, and Dave's going 'yeah, Killing
Joke, we gotta do that'. And then he was off doing the Foo Fighters
for quite a while and calls kept bouncing backwards and forwards.
We'd finished the album, unmixed with machine drums, and sent him
a tape, and I've got a funny feeling he liked it."
"You look back ten years ago, you were a fifteen year old kid
getting your first guitar, first band together, specially in the
States, what would a young band rather sound like, U2 or Killing
Joke? I think it's got to be Killing Joke. I mean, can you imagine
if there were all these bands influenced and sounding like U2 everywhere?
My god, what a nightmare! I'd probably give up and get a sweet shop."
inspiration of playing live
"Being on stage, looking people in the eye, seeing it all start
flying at a gig, there's nothing like it, better than any drug.
I'm sure loads of people have said that, but it really is. When
it's good like that, it's the best job in the world."
