„To give the American audiences credit, I think they just make their own minds up about music. The UK is governed by one or two shit publications. (…) The NME’s the one. And you know, no matter what anyone says about Pitchfork, it’s not nearly as evil as that magazine. (…) Our album got a review in the NME. The fucked-up thing about the review, and this just increased my hatred, the reviewer gave it a nine out of ten – I know because I met him – but they ended up giving us an eight because they didn’t think we were an NME -type band. (…) It’s a fucking rag. I tend to judge papers by how many shits it takes you to read through them. I think with NME, for what it’s worth, is a one-shit paper. After one shit, you’re like, ‚Alright, I’ve seen enough of this.‘“
