The link to the interview is also worth following if you're a Judd fan. It's a shame he's so disparaging about the SF experience (sadly, I gather they all are) because the albums still stand up today IMO
I had an interesting thought last night, after reading the interview you linked here.
Judd forms bands/projects with very specific visions in mind. He wanted split enz to be auditory art. He was forced make a solo record/split up Swingers, he wanted Fenster to be a jam band (essentially). And when these things don't happen EXACTLY the way he imagines them to happen, he cuts, runs and then looks down on the experience as a failure. It's interesting. I can understand why so many people find him difficult to work with. It's either his way, or it's wrong. Which is unfortunate, cos everything he's been in has at least a few moments of genius.
