"Right now it’s dangerously close to being all Win and Régine, all the time. Which is new, and sort of dangerous…The longer we’re a band, the more painfully obvious it becomes why most bands don’t last.

"Every month, I get a paper from Welfare saying how much they just paid for me and my two kids to stay in our one room in this shelter, and I can tell you the exact amount. Three thousand four hundred and forty-four dollars! Every month! Give me nine hundred dollars of that every month and I’ll find me and my kids an apartment, I promise you."
