Says Eddy Fair Oh:
Cameron Crowe's Singles was a film about a time, place and generation that had almost nothing to do with us. We're not from Seattle, we're at the younger end of the grunge spectrum and, as far as i know, sadly none of us have been in a relationship with Bridget Fonda. But, somehow, something about the film resonates with all three of us. Maybe it's the ideal we hold of early 90s Seattle life - forming bands with dudes from Mudhoney, watching nature documentaries with Stone Gossard and wearing tights under our shorts. It's the dream, you know? But Singles gave us more than just the opportunity to imagine what it was like to live in early 90s Seattle and have Bridget Fonda fall in love with you for saying Gezundheit - for me at least, Singles gave me the Replacements. Paul Westerberg's two songs on the soundtrack, his first work as a solo artist, were the best thing on an already amazing compilation and were my first introduction to the man that would soon become my favourite ever songwriter. The Replacements and Paul Westerberg totally shaped how Iapproach music and have had a pretty big impact on Fair Ohs too. These two songs are two of the best songs Westerberg has written, and I really hope we did them some kind of justice.
