Alternative Nation - Delta Deep/Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Future Songwriting

"And I loved Robert’s songwriting, as well, which is another thing that hopefully we’ll get to do on the next Delta Deep album – we’ve got a bunch of stuff written already, but we haven’t written anything together. So that’s going to be a blast."

Favourite STP Song/Album?

"I love the ‘Purple’ album. I think that’s just great. Obviously, “Interstate Love Song” is such a great song. But even when I first heard them, when I heard “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden,” I just loved the vibe of it, it was just amazing. All the way up the last album, actually. Even stuff like “Sour Girl."
