Yeah Yeah Yeahs FAQ

Everett True, BB Gun, Summer 2002

AUTHOR'S NOTE: It's the small hours of the morning. I can't sleep. Got a Sex Drugs Rock N Roll lecture to give in under seven hours. Can't sleep. So rather than spend the whole night playing Minesweeper, I thought I'd reproduce this. Thought it might amuse someone. Happened early on in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs career. Wrote it for NYC's excellent BB Gun magazine. Had a lot of fun with it. I bet Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be really happy to see this one again. I can date this pretty much to the week, cos of the reference to our wedding. Must'a happened 10 years ago, August 2002 or thereabouts. Careless Talks Costs Lives was the magazine that I put together with Steve Gullick, start of the '00s.
