Cutting Room Floor Quotes

Posted: July 19, 2011 in Quotes

Rob Morgan (the Pudz/the Squirrels): describes his Two Katz and A Toaster comic strip (which has been recently revived in paintings…see his Facebook page at http://facebook.com/2KAAT)

“It’s just one cat named Ivan and one cat named George and they lived with a talking toaster,” says Morgan.  “There was no explanation of it beyond that.”

Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, R.E.M., etc.) discusses the Fellows’ use of instrumentation beyond the standard guitar, bass, and drums:

 “We also, [in] those early first couple years, often had a Farfisa organ…which we used quite a bit until it got too much beer poured in it…”

Scott Vanderpool (Room Nine, Chemistry Set) talks about the basis for Seattle musicians’ group housing culture (Note: this quote actually did make the book, except for the last sentence…):

 “When I was a little kid, we were watching the Beatles’ Help and the Monkees.  You know, every damn cartoon seems like was about a band somehow…Josie and the Pussycats, and the Buggaloos—all that shit.  We were trained.  Just ’cause the Monkees didn’t actually show their bong on TV didn’t mean they didn’t have one.”

Vanderpool, who was doing sound for an early Soundgarden show, talks about a pre-gig conversation he had with front man Chris Cornell:

 “But [Cornell] came in with this Shure high school debate PA, which he wanted me to set up in front of the main PA, then mike it up.” (laughs)

“I thought, ‘Why would he want me to do that?’”

     “‘Aww, it’ll sound cool!” [said Cornell.]

     “‘Fuckin’ that’s gonna sound like shit!’” [Vanderpool responded.]

“And, sure enough it sounded like shit and I had it off halfway through his first song.  I don’t think he knew.”

    I eagerly looked forward to every issue of Pop Lust. Informative, entertaining and free from various places on the ave, with great artwork and copy by Rob.I really enjoyed his music and front man antics, but always thought this is where his real calling was. You could tell the effort and passion he put into every issue. Two Kat’s and a Toaster being my first read whenever I picked up a copy. I could probably find a copy or two in my boxes of old magazines.
