Where do you feel that we have yet to go, or at least, what sorts of artistic developments – musical or otherwise – would you hope to see within your lifetime?
Perry: I’d like to see bands exploring more sonic territory and not being afraid to take risks. I think bands create certain parameters for themselves, subconsciously, while working, and it makes them end up in a box. Then you end up with a band that’s got 14 of the same album. What’s the point? That’s what happened to KMFDM. Great band with great albums that are pretty consistent, but they’re basically the same thing, repackaged over and over. Why? Do something different, dangerous. Alienate people. Don’t attempt to live up to unrealistic expectations that fans have. Don’t push the envelope. Set it on fire!
