While these side projects might not be as popular, it seems like the guys are having fun with them, at least that's what Erik said himself in the interview, haha. You can't really tell, but if I uploaded the audio file you'd be able to hear in his voice just how excited and enthusiastic he is about Cunter.
And while I love Moneen, I'd hate for the guys to tour/put out records just because they could make some more cash.
Erik is generally a really upbeat guy (about nearly everything), but I'm glad to hear he's very excited about Cunter.
When I said "lucrative," I wasn't entirely talking about profits. I just don't see why those three wouldn't want to make music under Moneen, considering they're all still doing things musically. I know they're still friends, so something tells me the overall sound or image of Moneen must have soured for them a little bit.
