It's really interesting to see what the two of them were working on at the same time - Graham creating hyped-up noise punk
and Damon working on the ultimate MTV-bait
I saw one article that quoted Graham as saying he wanted to make an album nobody would listen to. And you get some cool results when you combine that and the exact opposite - see 13.
