Very first concert you attended and a memory from it.
Have not experienced a concert yet, but very much looking forward to one! I saw half of a film once and it really exceeded my expectations.

If you could have any musician (dead or alive) as a mentor, who would it be?
Guy from Blind Melon.

Very first concert you played and a memory from it.
It was the original Woodstock. We were so young back then. I’ll never forget Jimmy [Hendrix] up there with his ol’ six string. Man.

Artist you would most like to collaborate with or have produce your music?
I want Alan Moulder to mix our records, but he lives in a gold mountain and we are orphans begging for scraps.

Personal truth that fans would be surprised to know about you.
We were born 1,000 years from now.

How do you spend a typical day when you’re not touring or busy recording?
Locked in a never-ending battle on the edge of a vast nothing.

One artist or album you could never get tired of listening to?
Smashing Pumpkins.

Earliest music-related memory you have?
Recording our most recent record available now from Topshelf Records.

Nicest thing a fan has ever said, or given, to you?
Nothing is nicer than buying merch. Except if you’re broke, saying nice things can be just as nice. It’s important to be nice. Living a life without negative feelings can be difficult because of all these thetans but with enough focus we can all go clear.

Interesting fact about your newest release.
It was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in just under 30 minutes

Xperience you will never forget.
All experiences, because I have a photographic memory.
