"I hate when bands try to rehash, like they dress like it’s the ’60s and want to pretend it’s the ’60s when it’s obviously not. There’s no way you can do anything that’s an exact replication of the past anyway, so even if you’re trying to do something that’s retro — which I’m not, but if you are — at worst, it’s going to come off as fake, and at best it’ll still be a contemporary thing."
