Afterwards, we take them back to the "studio", listen to them, drink a little too much, and sample them. It's a common misconception that "sample artists" will lift entire riffs or melodies. We tend to sample single tones, chords, one-hits, drum fills, and other things that we can then use to construct our own melodies and rhythms with. But it's the process of listening to the music on record (which most of the time is terrible) that influences, and in fact enables, our compositions. After listening to these records, we usually throw them as hard as we can into the wall or floor, mostly because the music is so bad that we can't stand to hear it any more: "the record should never be allowed to disgrace the air of reality ever again." After a typical writing session, we'll have literally dozens of records strewn about on the floor, some of them stuck in the walls, hidden in the fridge, or boiled into amorphous blobs on the stove.
