Was it hard to get the human feces smell off of your bass guitar; did you just have to buy a new one?
4. You have a really bad official SXSW bio.

2. You are from Houston.
1. You sound like everyone else.
The world at large only needs one Black Lips, one throwback AC/DC ripoff, one Kanye, one Arcade Fire, one No Age, one Gaslight Anthem and one Jack White, and that is it.
