Rabid anti-Castro Cubans poop on Irakere's party in West Palm Beach

Now, the Hendrix comparison may be warping the analogy a tad, but Kirkland's premise speaks to the heart of why sound-scavenging is no less innovative on its own terms than any other genre.

"People don't get popular based on how well they play a certain instrument," Scott continues. "They're making it sound like they went down and bought a career down at Guitar World. The same kind of people think that, if you spend $5000 on synthesizers and drum machines, you're guaranteed success. It's just sort of sad. People who buy records and listen to music decide who's gonna be successful and who's gonna be popular, and if someone who's been studying guitar for ten years hasn't been able to crack the masses, then..." Scott hesitates, not wanting to offend further. "Maybe it's because they haven't had all the right chances. We've been very lucky. We're straightforward, levelheaded guys who aren't rushing to climb a mountain, pull out a megaphone, and start talking about how successful or important we are."
