In an interview with SuicideGirls.com Maynard James Keenan talks about his side project Puscifer:
SuicideGirls.com: Recently I've gotten to talk to Les Claypool and Mike Patton who have all these different bands that they do. They both pretty much told me that they're not even sure sometimes where the music they're creating will go. Are you the same way?
Keenan: I try to wear one hat at a time. I find that's the best way to do it. When I'm doing tours I'm doing tours. If I'm doing A PERFECT CIRCLE then I'm doing that. But PUSCIFER has been a little different because it is not just music. It's actually as much a clothing line as it is a band. I've been talking with different manufacturers so it's almost a brand at this point.
SuicideGirls.com: Was that always the intention?
Keenan: I think it's just the age that we're in. With the internet the way it is, music is now a soundtrack to some other activity. You can make a living selling songs but you make a better living playing them. If you're not going to play them you got to figure out what else to sell and I guess that comes down to t-shirts and key chains.
SuicideGirls.com: What was the inspiration for PUSCIFER?
Keenan: PUSCIFER has basically been my little baby and I just kept working on it. I was inspired by all these tunes on the radio like oldies, Motown stuff and hip-hop. Stuff that feels good. I approached PUSCIFER like that. I'm just trying to get stuff that I don't have to think too much about it. It's got a good groove. It makes you feel good and that's where I've been concentrating because I have all the introspective, torturous, painfully organized and arranged music that takes years to create and cuts really deep. But PUSCIFER does not do that. It's something that I want to have fun with and not worry about it being groundbreaking or changing the world.
