By 1996, I’d written some new songs, which arrived in a wide variety of styles—maybe because I wasn’t writing for a specific band anymore. It seemed to me that the songs would best be interpreted by either different musical groups or by a single group pretending to be a variety of groups. For most of this record, I chose the former, deciding to record the material by inviting a lot of musicians and producers I liked to perform and record specific songs. Judicious casting of these collaborators, who would also be creative producers, helped me get the variety I felt the songs were asking for. I worked with Morcheeba at their studio in London, with the Black Cat Orchestra in Seattle, with Devo at their studio in LA, with Joe Galdo in Miami, with Hahn Rowe at my New York apartment, and with Camus Mare Celli and Andres Levin at a brownstone in Brooklyn. I racked up lots of frequent-flyer miles in the process, but most of the time I recorded economically, as each group had their own home-style studio.
