And it is over thanks Ted Field that asked the. Can. And everything now making get a good job done. This obviously courses of I'm also obvious let's go legged thing I liked your arm you're you're. Cummins about that he being a disorganized like island. It was meant to sell it just didn't know five available he had just even driving along the coast I was like hey my wife's sister feels right like this is the perfect record. And I mean I'd look I would imagine for you guys to be more committed to the producer like Danger Mouse that I loved the production of the drums I always focus on jumps up and social crisp. And I just really dig the vibe of how it sounds and who was it was that a fun experience doing a record so and other recruitment. It was you know it was. Obviously different because we or from anybody in 1990s and oh yeah Rick in our darkness below us it was a big change for us court. But that group of Brian's really. You know. He really challenged us took. New Acer write music and record music and and the real. Steer Bradley Hughes and all the time and with personal income or so ago and him and I actually. We're. Just playing drumbeat anarchy would like they just put some beat. Kind of becomes who's saluted by hip hop yeah yeah so where you build the trucks in the drums first. Lou. It's and these two groups will. I owe. Her prepare for. Okay it's weird yes that's her thing and and he was really you know very involved all the six he is we'll. You know how the parts are going to we thought we see Oakley. They're doing everything and really evolves so does that Rick wasn't hurt. You know. We've done though rock band in the room. Saying in an M and that's. Grade and and grandma you know workers is as a fantastic news of course but it. We felt you know we don't wanna do that again try to move more modern and and were slightly more modern and and Brian Byrnes. It was greatly agree that they're really fun. I just used to jones' hard to come to tune out and I expect that dark place now. We're in its application tuning drum shots I just got out. They're changing 6800. Kate added twelve inch sports program over my eighteen inches. Yes indeed these. Yeah I'm not going to regard I just use his stuff and and I really surrendered magnesia. Why did you know. Is that you have that there. Big modern Bruck drum sound or whatever. You know apps work well hires there and he. And it's put some ads are an instant ape in her old school like let's all studios. I won't putts. I. Netflix or are okay or nerves or what I would do bring yeah. He. Can do it manipulated is his studio that you worked in quite a bit yeah there was is for them. Resisting because that I would go in the control room. And he had all the different like here and there are rumors that are you know the saying well. And they were assuming different options do what ironically what he can do or cute she germs lose so why now. If I play quieter. You know I can actually get more out of the dummies. In then so it challenged me to like you know the darkness as the sounds pretty big and I'm not parent in a way I'm. I'm I'm open up all of a move. Stimulus it sounds like if I'm in the room which you can just getting overwhelmed by it. Didn't and a good way obviously. No. So it was dumb that was different episode was really good for us that you know. News thank you can do that. Lot Saltzman in the ghetto it's a great record and we got to wrap things about a one stupid question asks Verizon until next Sunday about hockey and drums that I submit hockey league do it legally. What is it about drummers got a field goal to leave we're gonna mailing them nomads. Romance disciples of content is now cause I. That is like anymore that's right good stuff wonk as opposed to that off topic used to be that disables the plunder. Oh. But what do I goalies and also play every goalie I know that plays music also plays drums. The myth you this. Great baseball catcher. Right we couldn't drops the Mike. It doesn't say is well do we just like the pressure. This thing I think partly it's the stuff the gear that yeah we'd like they've got to show our car which stuff. And and and of course a goalie Brit you know you can. Move those who. But I I think actually cheaper and indoor soccer can recruit a goalkeeper doesn't go goaltenders. And the goal we don't keep anything. Itself out I shot. Head to our place comeback player that are going dark now. My keeper. Now I always I think I think it's partly a bit this year and either the catchers. Heard. In tool that yeah field in the team room you know close monitoring. Go to and you have the last you know you're you're you're. You're. The last signed offense and defense you know and about drummers in the dock their art and driving. You know an R&R van idea I've you know I'm com. Shah got the ticket and I got they say no no but seriously though I think there is. So weird connection you know the first well no I know everyone I know I tell you now it's a weird dynamic with the sport were there we all we have the best view in every position where every hockey. You you can serve you don't see everything that's our room there can be sue. Well you know ways to control things killer or or arm yeah. But behind the kid what I mean I mean this is of course that's the you can think of for me cursing out the top you had created sing you've seen while you're behind the kit. Where to be on stage during the crowd. Early on we do festival hall. Programs today are looking for a possible 99 units. She who. And it ended Dutch people are big people. Vikings right there in order this big head still look like it might involved and maybe there no room for like an extra month there's something you're going to be extra action figures like that people grows this is my mental health. And there and so the big head in the big people in their right during the and and go to reduce that acts are you guys. Hitting each other with prosthetic legs. There are fighting us all I want shoe a tennis shoe and other one did it. Well no. Well what was coming off why moment ago will push coordinator. Your beat them out of each other. And I thought that was pretty wild. Good uglier everyday sort gutsy Dutch people didn't so it was very quick. Call now Finnish people shore not a fish Norway yet. Hall and Helsinki but I hardly count them. Ladies and meaning that they. You know balance focus on the court. Curtain will put people of course to close or go.
