    I was very excited to see your interview in SLAP! My favorite musiscian laying it down in my favorite mag...awesome. I saw you play w/J Mascis and then at the Annex in Madison. Looking forward to the new cd and your next tour. Here's a question, how'd you get hooked up with the folks at Girl Skateboards a few years back? You did a track they used for a little skit in their video, "Goldfish". It'd be cool to see more such collaborations. Arebaderchi, WATT!

    hi,

    I know of girl skateboards cuz spike's an old friend. he's made a couple of videos for me. I am very down w/skateboarders and am proud that I was asked to do that spiel for 'slap' magazine. I try to work my bass like riding a skateboard when I try to coax sounds out of it. skaters are very inspiring to watt! dig it much. I try to make it swoop and crunch down hard, just like a cat on a rail or in a pool. much respect to skaters who dare.






    on bass, watt
