Godmuffin was written and recorded alone in Viola’s home studio. He describes it as “11 songs about transformation” and Viola isn’t afraid to let you see.
“It’s youthful in the chances it takes,” he says. “It doesn’t give a fuck.”
“The recording is linear, 'cause I can’t punch and fix things very easily, especially when I’m playing drums. On the computer, you can repair all of your mistakes ‘til you sound perfect. Or even worse, tune or beat detective the life out of it. I prefer rock music that’s beautifully flawed.”
“It’s human,” he says.
“Only the dead get to heaven
Here on earth we just get lost”
