What’s funny to me is that we actually do very little in terms of adding to our stage show. This is the thing that astounds me as I look back on the history of the band: it’s that Brian and I have earned a reputation all over the place, mostly because of the photos we send to the press, that we’re a band that’s heavy on the theatrics, whereas we actually spend less time getting ready to go on stage and have less of a stage show than most of the rock bands that I know. We have nothing on stage, Brian wears shorts and sneakers and make-up and a hat, and I wear a T-shirt and stockings and make-up. And that’s it. That’s our theatrics. That’s our stage show. It’s nothing. I guess it’s just that we’re just clowns and we dress up like freaks in the photo shoots and wear make-up that makes some people walk away from the show thinking “Wow, that was such an incredible stage show with all that stuff.” And I’m like, “What stuff?” Because, really, it’s all an illusion — a very economical illusion.
