I woke up Courtney Taylor-Taylor after he'd had a long night, who told me about being a trainee Volkswagen mechanic, how he and Peter Holmström worked as roadies for a swing band, learning to demo himself, working at convenience stores to put himself through jazz college, taking classes to inform and develop his songwriting, being prepared for the art of being in a band but not other elements, the story of Welcome to the Monkey House, making Dandies music videos, Fisher-Price cameras and homemade fisheye lenses, MTV, buying the Odditorium and a wine bar, living through different generations of record production, signing a bad deal, learning about managers, and a whole bunch more... probably.
