Otherwise, expect a lot of Radiohead, occasionally some of the Strokes, Björk, the Kills, the White Stripes, Jake Bugg, and the odd mental breakdown.

CM: The way we differ from Radiohead— who are unquestionably brilliant— is that, at the end of the day, I’m still a slave to catchy songs. I love sing-alongs. And within the limits of that, we’ll try anything. But we’re in the middle because I love “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry almost as much as “Karma Police”, and if you want to straddle that line, you have to take the slings and arrows.
Thom [Yorke] has a different philosophy, and that’s why they’re as great as they are. They’re a lot braver, in a certain sense. They always challenge the hell out of you. When Kid A came out, I listened to it once and was really angry. I was like, “Where are all the stadium songs?” And then, sure enough, it becomes your favorite. That’s so wonderful.
Reinventions like Kid A or Achtung Baby were natural, but we wouldn’t do that because it’s already been done. We’re trying to keep changing in our own way— we’re definitely a very different-sounding band now compared to the first album or the third album. I know we can never be in those guys’ spheres, but we have our own thing, which is OK. Do you think it’s normal for big artists to have haters and ups-and-downs?
