Pitchfork: Does it feel weird being one of the few members of the class of 1976 still performing and making music?#link >>>
PS: Not really, there tends to be a lot of other people that don't get as much publicity, or they get a lot. I mean, the Pistols are still playing. But, it's always a hard thing to keep reality away, the everyday thing, people have to go and get jobs. When we were younger it was like, we don't need a job, we can be punk.

Pitchfork: When you guys say you're doing another Gorillaz record, is this the film soundtrack?
DA: Making another pop record.
Pitchfork: So the film is not going to happen?
DA: We were never going to do it at all. That was actually...really, that was the end. We came back from holiday and I think we both really-- well, we're doing it now.

Format: What direction would you say the band is moving in, with this next release?#link >>>
Chromeo: Again, it’s really early to say, but songs like “Momma’s Boy” and “100%” are a good indicator of what we want the record to sound like. We want to do more smooth, ballad-y stuff. That’s kind of like our lane, you know? A lot of people can do electro stuff, or dance floor bangers that are way more effective than us, but we’re the song-writing types.
How old were you when you started playing music?#link >>>
I was 4. In the seventies, the Suzuki Method was sweeping American suburbs. The philosophy is to teach people when they’re young, make it fun, and it’s all by ear. It’s like the one-room schoolhouse, with everyone from the beginner to the most advanced all in the same room together, all playing the same tunes, and when you don’t know it you drop out. There’s no written music, so you don’t access that part of your brain. It’s very intuitive—they kind of mold you.
