“People will give me a recording of a show but I don’t listen. Once I do I’ll realize how bad I am at this.” – Javier Mendoza on Conversations with Calcaterra

“Because of Covid I don’t think I’ll ever want to play a show without a drummer anymore…because of playing at home all all the time, playing these live streams.” – Javier Mendoza on Conversations with Calcaterra

“There’s never a perfect show. Once it’s perfect it’s over, right?” – Javier Mendoza on Conversations with Calcaterra
