Colin Meloy Quote
Well, I think you just have to be prepared to be weirder and weirder. I follow the example of Robyn Hitchcock who, I think, has created a career out of this world he has constructed. It's very much his world, and he continually builds upon it. I think he's received criticism in the past along the lines of, Oh, here's another Robyn Hitchcock record about flesh and fish, and things like that, but in fact if you really look at the songs, they're just the building blocks for this very complex, very vibrant, and very real world that exists within his songwriting. So I look to him for inspiration.
