a interview with one of my favorite bands, the walkmen. they’re from DC (they went to st. albans and wrote a song called tenleytown), but are now NYC based and used to have their studio on 133rd.
“I don’t even associate The Walkmen to a walkman anymore.
Yeah, it’s not so bad once you get over it but the first time you hear it, you’re like “who are these chumps?”
If you could redo it, what would you have named yourselves?
You know, we were gonna call ourselves The Murderers but that already existed. Somehow, we didn’t think of The Killers, which is an awesome band name for a terrible band. If we had named ourselves The Killers, it would have been pretty badass.”
