Racket

"I think ... just taking yourself too seriously," says Lou finally. "I saw Korn recently, and they took themselves insanely seriously. They had all these roadies running around, fixing their equipment with power tools. And all turning up the volume, which is totally what guys do, like 'I have to be heard!' It's the total white-male thing of [macho doofus voice]: 'No one's listening to me! I'm surrounded by things I don't understand!'

"It's like, we didn't grow up with the military, with being drafted, so instead we're playing in indie-rock bands, going on tours in vans with a bunch of other guys, and it's like this rite of passage, you know ... playing horrible music way too loud." He pauses, looking out into the sunshine of the courtyard.

"And inflicting it on whoever we can."
