They did this interview with us.
How would you describe your music?
Tell us about how the history of the band?
Our criminal history? Sexual history? Not sure what you want here. We are dudes who love to rock, met up and made some music.
What are you influences/ musical heroes?
The guy who plays spoons down town Vancouver on Granville st, that guy is our hero
What inspires you?
Drugs, Dreams, Dope & Dhamma, whatever that means
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
We write all over the place, forget on the road or in the studio try composing a song while astral traveling on the moon with half naked double headed demon hookers, that’s how you do it.
What is your favorite song to perform live?
We like making stuff up, ask for an idea from the audience and just go off in the moment.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
We don’t care about names or whatever, our dream tour is the opportunity to reach, inspire and lift as much people as possible with our music.
What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
We are ignorant really, we have managers, publicists and all that but really don’t know exactly what’s going on around us, don’t really worry bout that, give us a stage and we are in. It would be stupid for us to comment on the industry we are really just doing this all by heart and intuition.
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
Since this question is asked in every interview we your readers a run for there money, one of the following is true.
- We got paid for a show in multiple ounces of drugs
- A girl stripped on the stage and offered us all “special favors”
- Nature called in the woods by the highway and one of us got lost
- All of the above
What are your future plans?
We are about to release our new EP Occult Mafia Mistress so just brainstorming on some music videos. Nat is looking to start teaching our fans how to astral travel, apparently it’s easy, we’ll see. Stay tuned.
