There is an air of mystery surrounding the three-piece group known as PPL MVR. The band formed in September 2014 and the rest, including location and who the members truly are, is unknown. What is for certain is that the white one is named SNWBLL, the black one is K-PO, the brown one is Q, and together the three play some great rock ‘n’ roll. See PPL MVR perform live on March 14 at Viva Phx— Monarch Theatre (21+) at 9 P.M..

Very first concert you attended and a memory from it. Not long after my birth into this world, I was sleeping in an open spot in the thicket when I woke to the most beautiful sound I had experienced before or since. I thought I was hearing the song of angels swooping in to whisk me away to Valhalla, but as my eyes adjusted to the morning light, I realized it was the cry of circling falcons, hoping to snatch my young, young flesh as food for their own young. I did not die that day, so I give thanks that chorus of Gorgons for teaching me their symphony of carnality.
If you could have any musician (dead or alive) as a mentor, who would it be? Hathor is neither alive nor dead, but I hope to commune with her in the otherworld.
Very first concert you played and a memory from it. My first concert was in the womb of mother-earth before she released me to this plane of existence. My last concert will be in the moments before she takes me back. In the interim, I will sing my animal song as long as I have lungs to fill.
Artist you would most like to collaborate with or have produce your music? I would like to dance with Bes while Apollo looks on and laughs.
Personal truth that fans would be surprised to know about you. We can mate with humans.
How do you spend a typical day when you’re not touring or busy recording? Eating, making love, praying, fighting. Same as you.
One artist or album you could never get tired of listening to? I will always love the song of Stratonicus.
Earliest music-related memory you have? See above.
Nicest thing a fan has ever said, or given, to you? We were once given an offering of spiced-meat and honey-wine. We ate and drank long into the night, shouting epithets into the sky together. Eventually, we became hungry again and asked our fan to leave.
Interesting fact about your newest release. Its secrets will move you to intermittent bouts of glorious rage and uncomfortable rapture.
Xperience you will never forget. Sharing this triumphant moment with you.
