The guitar pedal you can't live without? Never used one. Sex or rock and roll? Sex is rock n roll.

The guitar pedal you can't live without? I don't use them at all. I guess a tuner would be nice? We have a sweet wah pedal kicking around our studio that’s pretty cool. I’m going to get it going again actually.

Drugs or meditation? Anything illegal is always more fun.

Sex or rock and roll? Sex roll. No rock.

The defining characteristics of Humans? Dirty fun sweaty party.

Drugs or meditation? I meditated this morning. My friend Maureen led me in it and it was super cool. Five minutes went by really fast. She told me that I place wisdom over compassion, based on how I positioned my body. It was cool. I won't say what signalled it though, because if you know ahead of time you'll never know how you naturally would have sat. Email us and I'll tell you. But to answer the question: Drugs.

The place you want to visit more than anywhere else? Space. Recording or performing? Recording is great since it's the time when you come up with brand new material and ideas; I always imagine performing it in front of a crowd and wonder how they'll respond to it so... performing. I record so that I can perform.

The defining characteristics of Humans? Two very different kids, in separate barren rooms, asked to solve the same open-ended problem.

The piece of gear you would sell your first born for? A spaceship with a lots of great music gear and recording equipment inside, a water bed, a clone of Robbie if the real Robbie doesn't want to come along. I'm sure he will. Does that answer count?
