Someone said to me “Oh, you slowed down the Monkeys.” I was like “Dude are you kidding me?” I was begging them to put in these fast songs that they had, but that’s where they were at..…if I were to play you the demo of that record, you would realise that that’s them. My production style is to be transparent ….it would be a shame to smear yourself all over somebody when they weren’t asking.
