Gary Numan, “I Die, You Die”
Nitzer Ebb, “Let Your Body Learn”
Chris Bug: I tried to channel some of Douglas McCarthy's vocal style for The Horror. Nitzer Ebb's vocals are so off kilter and choppy but with the right bass line, it forms a kind of throbbing pulse that suddenly turns into a really heavy song.
Cop Shoot Cop, “Shine on Elizabeth”
Creedence Clearwater Revival, “Green River”
Ivan Lip: Third from the Sun is my favorite Chrome record. It's pretty creepy.
Butthole Surfers, “Cherub”
Ivan Lip: I kind of hear some of the ideas on this song and the Chrome song on our record. We ended up writing longer songs that had more layers, and spent more time with pedals, synths, vocoders, a power drill, etc.
