“anybody of any kind of intellect understands that the most active people as consumers of music are young women. the most active people on social media, when you come to talking about music, are young women. mary shelley wrote frankenstein when she was 18, do you know what i mean? there’s fans of ours that i meet that are far smarter than me. of course they scream and they go wild — but if I was young and really, really excited, and drunk, and my favorite band was there, i’d be screaming and going wild! and you know, I could be really, really concerned and want to appeal to the kind of crusty, liberal, north londoner [audience]. but trust me. i’m telling you as a grown-up person: if you do what i do every single night, and you get the choice to play to that group of people or a bunch of screaming, younger girls who fucking love you, you’re going to choose that one. because it means more. it means something to those people. and i’m not going to apologize for embracing this intense emotional investment that i get from people. because — because it’s a big deal.”

terradawnhazelton: So excited that I can finally post this picture!! As always, it was an extreme pleasure to work with the amazing Tatiana Maslany! This will be forever in my top 5 best musical experiences! All of which came together and was coreographed and brilliantly sung by the two angels making a stubbs sandwhich! Barbra Johnston & Anika Johnson are two of the most talented amazing women you could ever meet or work with! I hope we can all sing together again someday!
