I happened upon my copy of Strange Little Girls today when my client knocked over a case of CDs at the studio. It is nice to rediscover that record every couple of years. At least for me, I find it pretty creatively inspiring. Care to elaborate on "bass painting" when you have a minute? You make some whacky cool sounds on this recording!! Was "I'm Not In Love" and "Raining Blood" whole takes (like Tori is known for preferring in the studio) like the "band" songs? How if at all were you directed when playing like that? Seems like it was probably a fun and interesting session.
