But uh, but yeah, uh we’ve known each other for, like, 11 years, and I dunno, the album we just made it’s kind of, kind of uh, yeah, it’s just sort of the furthest step in everything that we’ve been, like, reaching for and, uh, taking it upon ourselves to to just, you know, to be doing whatever we want in studios, just gradually, you know, understanding mixing and recording and…

Mike Watt: Yeah, yeah.

John Frusciante: and figure out ourselves how to get the sounds we’re hearing in our heads…
