We went into the studio with absolutely nothing. Sometimes we were on the same page, but other times it was more complicated, basically because we didn't know what we were after. All we knew was we wanted it to be different from the first one.

'Fever' is basically a live record. We knew exactly what it should sound like before we went into the recording. So we could have this bratty confidence.

It's interesting that people are prepared to believe such odd things about us. Either we haven't really defined ourselves yet, or our fans are a little crazy.
