Hello Jeff, I'm Italian fan
i have to say one thing concerning Levitate.
by my musicstore i have found most of your album.
I thought to do same thing for to buy your album levitate because i haven't a credit card.
After one month my musicstore said me that the distribution of the album to the italian musicstore has ben stopped.
What happened? Do you know it?
I hope the distribution goes on as soon as possible because for me is the only way to buy your album at the moment.
P.s.
The idaho music is the best music that i ever heard.
Bye

Thanks for the response. It is a mysterious process and a difficult question to answer, but I'm infinitely curious about the relationship between melody and lyrics. What you say about improvising a "melody with words" is really interesting. The lack of "revision," or maybe better to say faith in the original impulse especially interests me. Thanks again. Whatever you're doing, it certainly works. Probably best not to think about it too much. Take care.

this is an extremely difficult question to answer.... i never write the lyrics 1st. i often sit in front of the mic and improvise a melody with words.... ill like the lyrics that happend spontaneoulsy and just leave them as is......like "evolution is cold" , "santa claus is weird" and many more..... my approach to writting lyrics hasnt changed much over the years....i think im getting better at coming up with something "real" for lack of a much better word.... it is a mysterious process i must say

Question for Jeff Martin | from Chris Kennedy Nov 03 2001 - 18:21

I have a question concerning lyrics. I'm a writer, primarily a poet, and I've been listening to the band since '93. I've read interviews where you suggest writing lyrics isn't your favorite aspect of your songwriting, but I'm struck by how appropriate the lyrics are to the overall effect of the songs. I've also noticed that on some of the songs on HEARTS OF PALM (don't have LEVITATE yet), there seems to be more of a narrative structure to the lyrics, less stream of consciousness, and I wonder if you always write in relation to the music, or do you sometimes write lyrics, then fashion a piece of music around them? And do you see any difference in the way you write lyrics now as opposed to when you were first writing? In any event, I'm impressed by the seamlessness of the music and the words, and very curious about process. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris
