The Frames Quotes

The Frames Quotes

It's definitely 50 percent argument and 50 percent cooperation. Like anything—you sit around and you come up with ideas, and then it's like "This is fucking bullshit, why don't you do it this way?" And then "That's brilliant, you're brilliant." If you're going to have an artistic partner, it needs to be someone you can absolutely strip. You know what I mean? [Laughs.] I don't mean literally, but you need to be able to strip them down and be very straight with them.
Glen Hansard (about songwriting)

Everything I learned about songwriting, I learned from busking. The one thing I didn't learn about was mic technique, which is no big deal—you can learn that in half an hour. Busking, you learn people, you learn about reading people. You learn about reading the atmosphere of the street. If you stand still in any city long enough, you see everyone pass you by. So you're in Chicago. If you stand on the corner of Belmont and Clark, and you do that for three years, you'll pretty much have seen everybody in Chicago pass that junction. As a busker, it's like you're like a lamppost, you're part of the architecture. And so you see everybody, you get to read how people are. You get to know who the pickpockets are, you get to know who the whores are, you get to know the drug squad, the undercover cops. You suss it all out. You just develop this radar for how things are gonna be—you know the person who is going to give you money, and you know the person who isn't, and you know the person who'd never give you a fucking penny if you were dying. It's almost like you get to know personality types, just by watching people walk past. You get a sense for things.
