"There's that rush of being outside and getting away with it. The satisfaction that you have something sitting out there, for however long, amongst everything else. It just had a life, and it would go and it went, and then that was it. You have this memory. It's hard to recreate that in a studio. That's a completely different practice."
—Barry McGee
