How about amplification
One of the key ingredients to
my sound is the speakers I use—
Electro-Voice SROs, which I put
in everything, even that Peavey
Bandit I’ve got. Generally, I use
a silverface Fender Twin live, but
in the studio I use only small
amps, which are best for recording since they push less air and
I wrote the music to “Liars Beware” . . .
when I had just moved to New York and
heard about four or five sirens upon
exiting the subway—sounds that turned
themselves into a guitar riff.
