Also, and on the other hand, I think as a musician if you pay too much attention to it you’re crazy. For example, Pitchfork had a review of us playing ‘Naïve Melody’ live where they said it sucked. Which I could give a shit if Pitchfork thinks our cover song is as good as the original Talking Heads version. That doesn’t affect me. But the fact that people are coming to our shows and saying, ‘Pitchfork said this wasn’t any good but you guys are awesome!’ That level of self-consciousness is really a bummer

We spend all our time together but somehow never have any time together
-  Regine Chassagne, of the sometimes frustrating paradox that is being a married couple in a touring band
I remember when I was around 12 and I saw on TV Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger. I was watching and thinking, ‘What is in these people so they are just doing that? What makes you cool like that?
- Regine Chassagne
Win had been having bands, and it was always the same band, the Arcade Fire, but with different musical styles and different people. So it wasn’t like this huge revolutionary change. More like, ‘This girl I’m dating is in a medieval band and we’re playing together also…
- Will Butler on the early evolution of the band and its shifting lineups
This band, before I was even in it, had done a pretty big tour with the Unicorns where they just won everybody over. Before I even saw them, I had this chance encounter where the Arcade Fire were opening for Maritime, who I was playing with, in Philly. At first I was super-stoked: ‘Oh, I’m gonna see my friends from Montreal, we’ll hang out…’ But it ended up that when they played there was already this huge word of mouth and they completely kicked our asses before we even played! [laughs] I was like, ‘Holy shit. Something is happening here!’ And it was totally organic – they just destroyed and everyone was like, ‘Holy fuck.’
