|Our interview with Boys On The Radio can be found here, the new project from Lovedrug's Michael Shepard.|
I would say what balanced out Lovedrug, as far as the writing was concerned, was the other guys in Lovedrug were very much more into the indie side of music, the cooler, underground music. I was always kind of the pop guy who brought some of the hookier stuff to the music. So when I sat down to do a record by myself, essentially Iím writing pop songs. Iíve been going through this huge Ď80s thing lately. I was largely influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, stuff like that that I grew up loving, kind of writing from a modern standpoint but with a little bit of that tinge to it.
