Listen to CHIRPradio.org for preview tracks and check out the ALL CAPS interview below!
1. What the dumbest thing you’ve ever done in a basement?
I USED TO HAVE MY FRIENDS OVER ON WEDNESDAYS WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL TO SMOKE BONGS AND WATCH 90210 AND MELROSE PLACE IN
MY MOMS BASEMENT. THATS PRETTY DUMB!
2. Can you tell me about one time when you realized this was YOUR city?
I DONT REALLY THINK OF CHICAGO AS MY CITY. CHICAGO IS GREAT BECAUSE OF ALL THE DIFFERENT CULTURES, ARTS AND GENUINELY CRAZY
PEOPLE THAT INHABIT THIS PLACE. THERE IS NO REAL EGO TO THIS CITY, PEOPLE JUST COME HERE TO LIVE, WORK AND DRINK TOO MUCH
IN THE WINTER.
3. Describe a scenario where Bare Mutants could be someone’s life coach and the top 2 life lessons you’d teach them.
IF WE WERE SOMEONE’S LIFE COACH THEY MUST BE REALLY DESPERATE FOR ADVICE:
LESSON 1 STOP BEING A DICK
LESSON 2 DRINK MORE TEQUILA
4. Tell me about your CHS session—what did you like about it? Was there anything that surprised you or was spontaneous
that came out in the recording?
THE FIRST THING THAT CAME TO MIND WAS THAT IT WAS RECORDED ON TAPE, ALTHOUGH LOT’S OF STUDIOS STILL MAINTAIN A TAPE
MACHINE, ITS SOME WHAT BECOMING A LOST ART. ALSO WHAT SURPRISED ME WAS HOW SPONTANEOUS IT WAS. WE ROLLED IN, SET UP, AND
MAYBE PLAYED FOR TWENTY MINUTES OR SO AND THAT WAS THAT. GREAT FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO HAVE SHORT ATTENTION SPANS.
5. What’s happening? What are your current/upcoming shows or releases?
WE HAVE A SHOW COMING UP ON NEW YEARS EVE WITH DISAPPEARS AND OUTER MINDS AT THE EMPTY BOTTLE. WE ARE ALSO RELEASING A 7”
RECORD WITH HOZAC RECORDS EARLY NEXT YEAR AND PLAN ON WORKING ON A FULL LEGNTH IN JANUARY.
