AP.net Interview: Jack's Mannequin

Posted by - 09:07 AM on 11/09/10
Check out our interview with Andrew McMahon here.
From the InterviewYouíre going to get one of the more honest offerings from Jackís Mannequin. Itís going to come from the heart and itís not going to be real processed. Itís not going to be real affected by production. Itís going to be a pretty naked, honest representation of what it is we do, both in the studio and on the road.

This sounds like it's exactly what I need right now.
Which means he should release it like, now.

The James Bond of music.

Men want to be him, and women want to be with him.

Cannot wait for another 10-15 new Jack's Mannequin songs to start mixing into their spectacular live show.

Andrew's the man. Good things are going to happen to this guy, I can see him being one of those artists that are still touring around in their fifties and sixties.

While there are definitely heavier subjects tackled in the lyrics on the album, my goal is to still have it be a record you could hear outside in an amphitheater in the summertime.

Stoked for the new album. Have loved both releases so far.

Granted the last thing I wanted to do is what a lot of artists do, which is go find some kind of hitmaker and go let them make your songs so you can have radio singles or whatever. That felt like a disingenuous thing to do...

So glad to hear Andrew say this. This is exactly what's wrong with music these days and the fact that he's on the right side makes me love this band so much more. This is what all the drama that Buddy from Senses Fail started is all about.

Also massively excited for this release and you've thought the exact same as me. He's taken a more, I wouldn't say mature (because I don't want to sound like I'm calling Buddy immature because I agree competely with what he said and the bands he called out) business like (?) approach to the argument and I really respect the way he said it.

Can't wait for the band to come back to the UK, going to miss Dr J and his flying V bass though!
