I Wonder...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else ever wondered if Matt listens to any of his older music. Like, do you think he ever just sits back and listens to Beautiful Midnight--its such a good CD--or any of them for that matter. I wonder if he appreciates his own work...

 

...hmmm...

Maybe, but I would think that playing it at concerts plus rehearsing and however many times he played it to make the CD's might have tired him out from hearing it.

I remember he once wrote in his blog he listened to The Audio Of Being and that he was astound of what it sounded like and the mood he was when the band recorded it. It was a pretty long entry but I haven't saved a copy. Maybe someone over here has it.

It's magic !

 

I guess it's the same thing for actors : they can't see themself in a movie without noticing every little imperfection.

You always hear artists say they make the music for themselves, first and foremost.. I cant imagine making a record and not listening to it, even if you dont want to admit it.

Then again, if its just expression, you may not want to relive it again.

Guess it depends on the song/album.

On the HUB I found a MMM thingy on MG.

 

One of the questions the interviewer asked was somehting like

"Are there any songs you dont like"

He replied something like

"Rico & indestructable are crap"

(sorry the vids at home and I'm at school so cant get direct quote)

 

So that implies at least that he has reviewed his earlier work, and that there is some of it he wont listen too.

 

But I must agree w/ MG here, Rico&Indestructable are the only songs I really dont like, and whats really annoying is about 4/5 times I hear MG/MGB on the radio its either Rico or Indestructable. Thats when I usually plug my MiniDisc in and listen to some of his good stuff ;)

Matt seems to dislike his own Music after a While.

 

I remember him answering a question at the Toronto reading of "At Last There is Nothign Left To Loose", that he hates all of Ghetto Astraunats, and many songs from Undedogs, namely Rico and Indestructable.

 

He did however mention that Born to Kill is as close to persect as he has come. This was right before the release of AOB, about a month before (the never played) I&I @ Much..... Sigh... those were the days.

i don't think he said he hated them i just think he didn;t like how they were mid-tempo so not very good live and he hated thier videos but i don;t think it was the songs themselves.

he listens to his stuff before he goes out on tour, to get setlist ideas.

I don't know if he does, he probably doesn't. He's often said that LOTGA was an abomination against music, or the worst album ever made... something like that.
