A QUICK CHAT WITH JASON REECE AFTER AN ACOUSTIC SHOW WHERE CONRAD AND HE PLAYED STUFF OFFOF THE NEW RECORD, SUMMARISED IN EIGHT SENTENCES.
Jason is jet-lagged after being on a 22 hour flight. He thinks the process of putting the new record out into the world is pretty surreal, but doing hundreds of interviews still hasn’t dampened his excitement about it. He respects the kind of longevity achieved by The Flaming Lips. I think his own band has achieved that too. What I think doesn’t really matter. He’s danced on stage with said Lips dressed as a Gorilla. The costume smelled pretty bad. Bands/artists that still make him act like a fan-girl include Iron Maiden, Slayer and Chuck D.
NEW STUFF SOUNDED GOOD. PHOTO BY ME.
