"The Mark's Keyboard Repair album came about as an experimental concept loosely based on [filmmaker] Lars von Trier’s Dogme 95 idea. I thought I'd try to "take back the music" by giving myself some rules, such as:

1. Use a simple loop of percussion.
2. Use only four tracks.
3. Do not overdub.
4. Never repeat a song style
5. Use only one microphone (a Shure SM57) for everything.
6. No compression.
7. Only make a collection of 10 pieces to call an album.

Print only on vinyl, five per side. (I ended up making three records to equal 30 pieces).

There were other rules, but I can't remember them. I was influenced by the Dogme 95 idea because that was a very [Steven] Spielberg-influenced time, everything was really slick – so many records were using 68 tracks to record a song, so Mark's Keyboard Repair was made to be a little defiant of that too."
