Skinnie Magazine Interview


They talk about John's role on TBIG, what's needed on your musical resume to be in the band, and what influence Mark Gonzalez has on Cedric's lyrics among other things.

...also of interest on the cover, the girl Jenny Useldinger is from my hometown. She was on my old company's surf team.

"It was the female spirits that contacted us and it was the male spirit that threatened us the most. It's all their slogans and threats and challenges and one-liners and names that we used for everything lyrically."

- Don't you ever trust my mercy

"All the more straight-ahead lyrics that are not so much stream-of-consciousness, which is what Cedric's work usually is, and song titles come directly from the board, like "Goliath" and "Tourniquet Man"."

"I have definite meaning, but I prefer individual interpretation. Some of the times there are some things in there that I've tapped into that are very private. I just want people to dig a little deeper and not be so obvious about some stuff."

- Cedric on his lyrics

"FAVORITE ARTISTS
+ Cedric:
Vic Chesnut. I haven't felt the need to cry at a performance in a long time and he really dug that out of me.
Beth Ditto from The Gossip
Ellen Page. I consider some actors to be artists and I think she's pretty fuckin' awesome.
+ Omar:
Frita Carlo's paintings are unbelievable.
Marcel Duchamp.
Luis Buuel. The Milky Way"

-NOOOOOOO! I can't stand Ellen Page. Weren't they on MTVCa the same day?

i agree that she comes off as slightly unlikeable in some interviews, but she is very talented. a lot of people freaking love her too. maybe cedric was moving in on her at MTVCa. she is way too young for him, that perv.

yeah...I don't know if I didn't like her acting in Hard Candy, or her acting and the script. She does come off as an indie snob in some interviews.
