The Making of
The Reminder
2006

“I wrote during sound checks. Touring on Let It Die I started to learn to use the empty venues as jam spaces. We’d do soundcheck and then everyone would go off to smoke cigarettes and gaze at their laptops, and I would hang out by myself in the room and use the PA. I did a lot of dictaphoning on the stage during soundchecks and those pieces became the bulk of what I brought to recording The Reminder.”

“When I went in to record The Reminder, I wanted more people, more hands on the task than the two of us who made Let it Die. More chances for human error. I’d toured Let it Die solo for a spell, then with a band of french players and eventually I made my way home again and found some old friends from Canada to tour with. So Let It Die, a very airtight and produced album, had gone through a lot of re-arrangement over a couple years of touring and the playing of those songs had ended up closer to how the Reminder sounds than how Let it Die does.”
