I mean, look at us,” frontman Nick Valentine conceded to Nata Cavalieri of the Dallas Observer. “We get called a novelty act all the time. I guess I can understand, but it sorta bothers me. It seems like novelty is something premeditated. I don’t think our band has ever been like that. I write these songs ’cause I like this kind of music, and I grew up with the Talking Heads, Pere Ubu, Camper Van Beethoven–bands with a cynical sense of humor.”
