"Whatever a group is, it was the chemical mixture of those four people that makes a group work. That's a lesson everyone should learn. 'Don't mess with it!' If it works just let it ... do whatever you have to do to bring it forward, but don't mess with it. And like, we learned that ... bitterly. "
—Joe Strummer of the Clash
"I want our band to be an ensemble where the sum of the parts is more than the whole, like the Beatles or the cast of SCTV."
—Chris Murphy of Sloan
