RNW: Could you tell us a little about each song on the new album. Let's start with Little Head.

Butch: Little Head is a song that's basically your classic breakup song. You can't get over the one who like verbally tormented you when you were together and who belittled you. You try so hard to get that person out of your head but you can't. 

Now on song two, Grant Park, I wrote that song while making "Hey! Album". It didn't come together in the original recording. Then I re-recorded it and I think it's one of the best songs on the record. I wrote that song from personal experience. When I was sixteen years old, I had a girlfriend. That was when I was playing in clubs and I thought I was the total rock stud at sixteen because I was getting away with going from high school to playing in nightclubs six nights a week to 21 and over audiences. They all thought I was twenty-one. I was leading this double life. I was going out and getting girls every night, then getting up, being 16 and going to high school every morning. I was kind of laughing at my high school buddies who didn't know, because if anyone found out I wouldn't get to do it. 

I had a girlfriend who was 21 years old and she thought I was 21. I didn't tell her, I lied about it. She was a babe. I thought I was lovin' it, but then she dumped me. I got dumped hard and it kind of crushed my ego because I thought I was doing good having an older girlfriend. It turned out she never told me why and when she told me why, I found this out about two years ago after this had been since sixteen years old. She emailed me and told me the reason she never told me why was because she left me for a girl. So that kind of inspired me to write a song about betrayal for the same sex. That's what that song is about. 

The next one, which is Get Over  is what it says, it's about "I hope you never get over me cuz I'll never get over you." …It's about people who have lost someone and are bitter about it, jaded.

Sugarbuzz is about the neysayers, the critics and the people out there that are telling you, not even if you are in the music business but with whatever you do, telling you, you shouldn't be doing something because it's not right for you. Or basically trying to kill your buzz, whatever makes you happy and gets you buzzed. Because someone's bitter, jaded and jealous they're trying to bring you down and tell you it ain't gonna last or try to bring you off of that. It's a message basically saying, to tell them to stick that sign up their ass! The one that says it won't last. 

RNW: So it's sort of an outgrowth of Freak of Week?

Butch: Yeah, it's kind of like part II. 

Supernatural Blond is a song about a guy who's obsessed with this blond knockout who does not exist. He only dreams about her and she is a supernatural blond. 

RNW: It has some tongue in cheek lyrics

Butch: Very.

RNW:: Radio Tokyo, I heard that came to you in a dream?

Butch: … In a perfect world to me radio would not be segregating certain styles of music. It's about people that are listening to the radio and are getting tired of hearing or being played only what people think they're supposed to listen to and like. Instead of being able to listen to what they want. And so they tune into this pirate radio station at night that takes over the airwaves, called Radio Tokyo that plays whatever they want. They request it, they hear it instantly and basically it breaks down any kind of segregated walls they may have from listening to music and being stylistically driven into a hole. After a while it becomes so popular that it takes over the airwaves. That's the story line.

Then Cold As Hell was on the original "Hey! Album" before getting signed(to Elektra Records). It's another song about love loss. 

RNW: What about Beautiful?

Butch: Beautiful is about a girl that a guy wants and can't have and she's got some loser guy that doesn't appreciate her for who she is. I think I might have been inspired by that movie "the Wedding Singer" when I wrote this one. You know, like the jerk guy who treats her like s***. He has all the money and everything he wants and the other guy wants the girl real bad and if he had her he would tell her she doesn't need to change a thing, she's beautiful just the way she is. 

I'm Losing You is a song about physical abuse and rape. I try not to go too far into it. It's just kind of one of the songs about someone who gets sedated and messed up and led down the dark path of destruction. 

This Time is a song about masturbating to a Farrah Fawcett poster. 

RNW: (lauches)

Butch: Better Off Alone is basically what it says. 

I Could Change is another rant about me telling you that I can change, you can change and everything would stay the same. So it's kind of saying let change happen and accept it. Whether it means trends, cloths whatever. You're gonna be laughing about parachute pants five years later, your also gonna be laughing at backwards baseball caps five years from now. We're all gonna be laughing at everything, so just get used to it. 

RNW:: The final song Cigarette Lighter Love Song, I can't wait to hear that one live, that's gonna be incredible. 

Butch: I can't either. 

RNW:: Speaking of live, you guys are known for your live performances, so are there any major tour plans coming up? 

Butch: We are leaving September 7th to go out on a co-headlining tour with SR-71. They are opening the shows and we're closing them. We're doing that because I co-wrote their hit, Right Now. We're kind of celebrating that by going out on tour together. We're two bands trying to bring back the rock a little bit. 

RNW:: Sounds like a great show. 

Butch: Yeah it should be fun. Then after that we're gonna come to the west coast. 

RNW:: RIGHT ON! I can't wait  to see that.

Butch: Me either.

RNW:: Are you gonna be headlining out here?

Butch: I don't think so. I think we are going to go open some shows for Dynamite Hack and from there who ever else what's to have us. 

RNW:: Ok, one last question for you here. I read an interview where you listed the biggest influences in your life...  Your dad, Prince, Kiss, Elvis Costello, this guy named Matt ... 

Butch: Yeah,that's right. 

RNW:: Who is Matt?

Butch: It was this guy named Matthew. It's kind of an interesting story. He was my sister's boyfriend, and we all lived together in this big loft. He was just this amazing songwriter. When I was just a little young, dumb metalhead and wanted to become a songwriter and wanted to really focus on being a good songwriter I envied this guy for his ability to just whip out these lyrically colorful and intense songs. His influences were Lyle Lovett, Elvis Costello and people like that who just had that in them. And he came along at the right time in my life, when I needed it. I needed someone to help shape and learn how to get in contact with being descriptive and colorful. And paint a picture, tell a story and set off emotions instead of just filling in the blanks with rhymes. 

RNW:: Thanks for you time and good luck with the album and tour. I can't wait to see you guys out here on the West Coast.

Butch: We'll be there!
