One Question Interviews: Boilerman

Jim (Boilerman)

SPB: What’s with the numerical song titles on the EP? 

Jim: The deal with the numerical song titles for the 10" is two-fold.  First, all the songs on the record deal with really similar subject matter -- they're all more or less about different facets of existential anxiety. I also feel like the songs flow together in such a way that the record is more of a singular piece than it is a sequence of multiple separate pieces, so the numbering is meant to imply the fact that the tunes are smaller parts of the same whole. The cover song obviously threw that whole thing off a bit, but I wanted to keep it anyway. Plus, thinking of song titles is the pits.
