Bob Nastanovich, in an interview with Grantland.com, on his early days with David Berman and Stephen Malkmus in the Silver Jews: “We were definitely outside the [New York indie] scene. It kind of ticked us off. [...] Maybe it was fiction, maybe it was my imagination, but it felt like people didn’t want us there. It gave you a chip on your shoulder, to the point where you wanted to figure out a way to stick it in their eye. Those Silver Jews records, there’s definitely some angst and some real disdain for the community in those records.”
