Can we get a close-up of this wonderous shirt? > A-It says on the back, "a desperate choice for desperates times." > D-Now did you read about Bush's lack of vision thing in the press? How did > you, is that widely reported in Europe? > A-It came from his own mouth. Yes it is widely reported in Europe. Not only > widely reported, but probably more widely listened too than in America. > D-And you, you've been living in Hamburg for the past, what, few years now. > A- Yeah, about six years now on and off. yeah > D- And since we're talking politics. What do you think of Mr. Bush's war? > A-I wish it wasn't his war. Think there has to be a war. But I wish it wasn't > so much his war, that not his fault. That's the fault of other people > for not joining in enough. I just wish he was doing the right thing for > the right reason. > D- Why does there have to be a war?(Dave gets in over his head here) > Do you mean Christianity and Islam? Or just about this specific issue? > A-About Kuwait. I don't like the Kuwait government more than anybody else. But > it's the government of Kuwait(short pause before each word to sort of > convey the least vile of two choices but I don't have to like it kind > of thing) > D-Now as an album, Vision Thing is probably as horrific and intense as pretty > much anything including classical music.

(short pause, then serious again) Anyway, yes. > D-Are you in a rage when you write lyrics? > A-No, I was in a very droll mood when we wrote Vision Thing. I don't thik > it's a very angry record.

He lives right around the corner from me in Hamburg. We > started working together about 18 months ago when I knew I wanted > someone else to work with.
