'Those who knew the pair also remembered that they argued constantly. In the documentary about the band, We Jam Econo, Watt’s mother recalled them fighting over everything, from driving directions to creative directions. […] Watt’s mother, however, punctuated her recollections by saying, “You don’t fight with a stranger the way you fight with someone you love.”’

'A friend of mine praised the trio’s ability to “solo all at once.” Often Watt’s bass and Boon’s guitar spiraled around each other like the necks of a two-headed monster, held together by the focused drumming of Hurley’s percussion arrangements.'

'Geo, Margaret, and I discovered Dave going into our final year at university. As we spent many late nights discussing the people and artists we wanted to become, Dave’s life and accomplishments were never far from our minds as a kind of epitomic blueprint, evidence that our youthful idealism could have real-world impact.'
