Alejandro Escovedo just posted this video on Facebook. He and Chuck Prophet discuss the importance and purity of demos, an Austin icestorm, and the thrill of writing a new song (plus the video weaves in a running joke about a former manager who always expected a little more from them).
Some of the take away quotes from the video are:
“There is always something about the demos that are better.” — Prophet
“And we ended up going to France and spending five days trapped…” — Escovedo
“They put us in a little cottage.” — Prophet
“The demos are my favorite recordings of the songs really.” — Escovedo
“They’ll never be that pure again.” — Prophet
