Indy: Why the ice age?

EG: I'm really interested in the period, because it was such a dramatic shift in climate ... basically like this giant eraser ... It's a chance to destroy all boundaries and start fresh, which fits with the themes of the band.

Indy: You played just three songs at the Breakdown Book Collective show last week.

EG: They're so damn long. Three songs is a good 35-, 40-minute set.

Indy: So, how many instruments does the band now play?

EG: The current lineup includes guitar, keyboard, cello, bass, two tenor saxes, two trumpets, trombone, computer, banjo and drums.

Indy: How will CAFTA impact "Let Yourself Be Conquered," a song about Xela, Guatemala?

EG: It's a slogan on the back of minibuses, aimed at tourists, implying that it wants you to give yourself up to this great city ... Xela was a center of resistance to colonization ... Nothing political has been good for folks in Guatemala for the past 500 years.
