Sound Bite: Hanson
Taylor: Well we um, it’s always nice to get critical acclaim and it’s nice when people are in the business to give you respect, I mean, I think you make records first for yourself, second for the fans and third for the critics on some level, the first two are the ones, that live and breath it, yourself and your fans, but when you can get people you respect to say, “hey, this is a great record” and actually talk about from its point of view from what it was influenced by hearing the music, I think that’s a huge thing, I think that for us it has to go back to what makes you tic as a band and if anything as far as getting critical respect for this music, I think it has to go back to the fact that we’re genuine about it, it comes through in the music, every record you make the best record you can make and um, we’ve been lucky that, we’ve a had a lot of people to actually see it for what it is and hear the records and see the lives shows, I would say one thing about this band for sure, in order to really get the whole picture you’ve got to hear the record and got to see the live show, every band, you want to see the live show to, for us we really feel that’s a huge part of understanding what this bands about, it’s about an experience, it’s about moving people and getting them involved, I think that’s a huge part of the whole circle, I think that’s why we’ve been able to get a lot of respect from people in the industry that we admire.
OC: Did you want to add to any of that?
ZacK: Uh, wow.
Taylor: He’s going to say yes.
Sound Bite: Hanson
Taylor: We have done a whole series of live recordings, we record every show that we do, a multi track digital recording and sell, so very likely we can put out a live recording a live EP.
Zack: We’ve been doing more and more of that on our web site, I mean using, not saying we are going to put out a record, but just saying, hear let’s put out a couple of live songs, here’s a 5 more live songs, here’s 3 more live songs, um, just fueling a community of people on the web.
Taylor: It’s pretty cool when you go and see a show, and then a few weeks later, you’re like, oh there’s 5 songs from that, oh, I saw that show and then just there, so, if I was a fan of the band, I would think that was cool, that’s the way to try, that’s the way we try to think, what would I think is awesome if I was to like this band.
