Mark Mothersbaugh article

LA Weekly just did a piece on Mark Mothersbaugh's Mutato studios. Mothersbaugh and his coworkers compose and record music for everything from Cartoons to Hollywood movies to Commercials. Most people are probably aware of Mothersbaugh's past working relationship with Wes Anderson (Mothersbaugh provided music for the first 4 of Anderson's films) but did you know that Mothersbaugh and Co. also came up with the theme song for Pee Wees Playhouse and the Nickelodeon television show Rugrats? The article is a really interesting read, you should check it out. It also features the following quote from Mothersbaugh on how he first started working with Gerald Casale, “We couldn’t afford drugs, we didn’t have a van and we hated bowling.” Yep, yet another scenario where boredom creates brilliance. Thanks to Monsieur Bidwell for the link.
