So anyway, all I wanted to do was be in bands. That’s all I wanted to do. I was so bummed out because rock bands do not want girls in their band at all. There were just no girls in the band in Dayton, Ohio. Even Pollard from Guided By Voices would say ‘no bleeders.’ And he’s acting like he’s joking but everyone knows he’s not joking. ‘No bleeders in the band.’ So I always just wanted to be in bands and no one around here would play.

Frankly you don’t want to explain it to anybody—it’s a lot of its personal, private shit. It’s like politics and sports and people’s personal lives have all been smeared together in this modern world. It’s a very presumptuous attitude about a lot of things. [People say] ‘Oh you’re shifting something in your world—we demand a statement as to why.’ I’m not the mayor, this isn’t the bus service for a town. This is a rock band. There’s been a shift in the lineup, big woop-dee-doo… As far as we’re concerned it ain’t that big of a deal.
