New Frusciante Interview
John Frusciante became the most important person in my life <3
SPAZ: Regarding the tracks on Enclosure, did you record them with the intention of putting them on the same album or were these recordings that you just felt pieced together well?
JOHN: Ever since PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone, that’s everything that I’ve recorded. Like, I conceived of them as an album and I did one after the other. Like, PBX and Outsides and Enclosure were just all the songs that I recorded within like a year and a half period. I was also doing Black Knights while I was making Enclosure. Ever since I started making music to be released, everything I’ve done has been on the albums. These last three months have been the first time in the last few years that I’ve made music again specifically not to be released, which is what I’m doing now. But yeah, I definitely maintained a kind of a consistency that I didn’t have when I was in a band in terms of - there’s no excess. It’s like when I used to be just a conventional musician, I used to write so many songs that I never even had a chance to record. Like, now I don’t really write songs that often, but when I do, they get recorded and when I record something, it gets released. That’s very different from how it is – say in a Rock band where you have lots of leftover songs, they write way more than they need, they don’t know which ones are good and which ones are bad, they sort through everything, critiquing which ones are the best. I don’t do anything like that. Everything I do is to express something and give it to the world.
