to Part 1 or 2
D: Can you tell me a little
bit about your EP project - "Black?"
A: Its not actually started
yet. Some of the instrumentals are written. Its going to be
mostly instrumentals and a few songs with lyrics.
D: It will have the lyrics
to "Slow Motion" on it though, wonít it?
A: Yeah it will have that
and some other songs, mostly instrumental.
D: So this is something for
the Third Eye Blind faithful? Will it only be available on your web
A: No, it will be in stores,
we just want to make it, incredibly cheap so the real fans can get it and
just listen to some new music.
D: Okay, so your first CD
was all red (the cover), and your second CD is called "Blue." Now
your EP will be "Black." Do we have a color theme going here?
When does the yellow version come out?
A: That would be our fifth
album, because we actually have to do "Burnt Sienna" and "Peach" first.
D: Oh, I like "Mauve."
A: Actually, there wasnít
any color theme going.
D: Oh, so no one could come
up with a catchy title, huh?
A: Right. If you look
on the "Blue" CD cover, see how that kind of planet - its actually a moon
- is all blue with the swirling gases around it? And see how on the
spine of the CD are all of our pictures in colors? We look real serious.
D: Yeah, you do look really
serious. You look like you have this Fu Manchu mustache going on.
A: Yeah, I thought we looked
like super heroes or something. Did you ever see Superman II, where
they have those criminals that are on trial?
D: You mean the ones in the
A: Yeah! Thatís what
I thought we looked like. I wanted to call the CD (in his announcer
voice again) "Defenderís of the Universe." But nobody else liked
D: Oh, theyíre no fun.
I like it. Well, I know you want to get going and get ready for the
Hard Rock show, and get your t-shirt and all, so Iíll just wish you much
luck with the success of "Blue" and safe travels. Thanks for your
A: Youíre welcome, no problem.
