B-Sides: How has the tour been?

Nick Conceller: We got robbed in Baltimore. They took my laptop. They also smashed the window, and we rolled like 800 miles with no window. Everyone was freezing. Besides that and a few fistfights, it's been really good.

How did you get hooked up with Men, Women and Children?

Todd and I were friends from when he was in [Glassjaw], and he gave me a call in September of 2003 after they got off the Warped Tour, saying he was looking to put a project together for fun. He asked if I was interested in doing some stuff on the beat/electronic side of things. It went kind of slow for the first six months and then, in April 2004, we decided it was time to do it full-time, and I moved out there.

What's the difference between the scenes in New York and St. Louis?

Apples and oranges. Support in St. Louis is very hard. No one's really there to give you positive feedback.

How do you describe your sound?

Seizure music.

What's the groupie scene like?

It's not as good as we would like it to be.

Problems with quality or quantity?

No comment. -- Andrew Friedman
