From an interview with Dom:
But you’ll always be known as a Worcester band.
Dom: The Beatles moved out of Liverpool, but they weren’t like, “Oh, we’re a New York band.” Same thing goes for Zeppelin and Sabbath, they were from Birmingham. We’re from Worcester. A lot of bands say that they’re from Brooklyn because they’re located in Brooklyn, that’s not where they’re from, that’s not where the band’s from. I’m not necessarily from anywhere, but I’m more from Worcester than I am from Hadley.
He mentions this review in WoMag, which contains what is possibly the best phrase I’ve ever read in that magazine, viz. “some shmuck with an over-glorified Casio.” (The review itself is worth reading just for the comments.)
That hilarious review, of course, was in part a response to this rather funny Pitchfork interview in which Dom stated “I can’t say enough about Worcester, Massachusetts. It’s a utopia. … With the recent passage of this new bill, artists can do some things more freely now, like carry two grams of pot without any fines. And they actually pay us money for music equipment. If you’re an artist, you can fill out a form and they’ll help pay for rent and give you more money on your food stamps.”
