1QI: Spotlights, CoinTossRecords, Thin Lips

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview three days ...

Sarah Quintero (Spotlights)SPB: What’s the strangest trend you see in modern music (or in the industry)?
Sarah: The strangest trend I have been noticing today in music is seeing older bands (that I grew up listening to), like Failure, Shiner, and Hum, get back together and be reviewed and/or accepted into the “metal” scene. Growing up these bands were, to my recollection, considered more Rock or Alternative. I think it’s awesome and I love that they are getting that recognition, because they are heavy as F. I also think that the “industry” today is a lot more accepting now that the lines have been dissolving that were created by the big dinosaurs that used to run it. Weird? Yes. Awesome? Definitely!! Heavy music has a bright future and it’s exciting!
Indy (CoinTossRecords)
SPB: What was the first punk show you attended?
Indy: It was a Split Lip show in Indianapolis. I was in middle school, a long time ago
Chrissy (Thin Lips-vocals/guitar)
SPB: Do you get nervous before you play a show?
Chrissy: I definitely am always scared before we play...Sometimes it's worse than others. The boys are pretty relaxed, a little nervous here or there, sometimes pretty nervous but it doesn't show too much. Usually once I start playing I'm fine but right before I get on stage I range anywhere from pretty nervous to extremely terrified. It still seems worth it every time though.

Bands 1QI: Mike Bell & the Movies, Bossk, Planet B

1QI: Mike Bell & the Movies, Bossk, Planet B

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview three days ...

Mike Bell (Mike Bell & the Movies)
SPB: What was the best show you’ve seen in the past year? 
Mike: May 15th, 2015, Mac McCaughan and the Non Believers, Underground Arts Philadelphia, PA
I had kept myself away from the album ‘cause my plan was to purchase directly from Mac. Now to say Superchunk was a major influence in my songwriting within the last decade would be a gross understatement. The chance to see Mac perform his new songs and stripped down Superchunk songs...I WAS STOKED. The show was great! There weren't many people there, it was raining, but a ton of friends ended up in attendance. Eric from Lame-O, Jake and Ian from Modern Baseball, Peter from Dogs on Acid/The Movies...I am forgetting a few...
The show was super intimate. Mac even threw in a couple of tunes "Billy Bragg-style" in the middle (just him and an electric guitar). After the set I went to purchase the record and the guitar player from The Non-Believers informed me I would have to wait for Mac, since he was the only one with a Square reader. I road home in the rain on my bike as fast as I could and listened to that record four times. Interesting postscript to the story: this was also how I learned Mac's real name was Ralph. [The online receipt for payment was to a Ralph MacCaughn]
Tom (Bossk)
SPB: What song would you want played at your funeral? 
Tom: "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd.  It's my favorite song of all time.
Luke Henshaw (Planet B)
SPB: How has the increasing digitalization of music changed how you listen or record?
Luke: To me, with the increasing digitalization of music, a lot of what I hear is all sounding the same and I’m having a hard time differentiating who's who. There’s no creativity with the production. Everyone's sharing and using the same software with the same functions. I'm also finding a lack of actual song writing occurring right now as well. Digital programs make it so anyone with a computer can push 1 button and record a song, not anyone with a guitar.
