For several years, this band and Dinosaur have been pretty active on a regular basis. Is it weird to look back 10 years or so ago and think that, at least from an outsider's perspective, everything seemed like it was over? Ten years ago just wasn't a very good time, when I look back on it. I moved from Boston, ended up in LA and simultaneously the last Sebadoh record tanked. People hated that record! It was going from touring and playing sold-out shows to playing in front of 20 people. There was just no doubt about it that something really bad happened. It was like, "Fuck!" I thought that record was pretty good compared to the one before it.
And with Dinosaur, it was like, J. had kind of moved on. That might be when he started the Fog and was working on his solo shit. I don't' know, 10 years ago? Fuck yeah, I didn't think anything would. . . . Although I can't say I ever gave up on Sebadoh, because Jason and I have always had a really good working relationship. Whenever we've entered touring, it's really easy to snap into it. We never spend a lot of time wondering if we should be doing it, or why we're doing it — the kind of questions that really get in the way. We're just like, "Hey, let's do this. We know a bunch of songs. We're a band."
