TV On The Radio have finally sounded off on their SNL performance a few weeks ago where almost everyone thought the sound mix was awful. Talking to the Canadian Press, Kyp Malone said “In the room, it sounded fine to us. We had a really good time, and it felt really good. Then we came offstage and immediately started getting texts about how (terrible) the sound was.”
Malone said that their sound engineer couldn’t work their performances because he’s non-union.
“I want to tell strangers on the street who keep talking to me about it that I’ll go back in time and be a union-working sound engineer, and also go into the future so I can duplicate myself and come back as two people and work the sound and do the performance,” he says.
Two days later, TVOTR performed on “The Colbert Report” where they sounded much better.
“Colbert seems to have saved us some humiliation,” Malone says.
