Scene Point Blank: How will you remember 2007? (In terms of music)

Not buying one album.

Scene Point Blank: What kind of impact do you think donation-based releases like Radiohead, Saul Williams, etc? will have on the record industry?

It's an interesting concept, but I think people are missing the picture - that band Stars did this early in the year, and now Radiohead - these bands are liberating their music from the music industry, they just figured out a way to get their fans to pay for the leak of their records.

Scene Point Blank: 2007 saw the decommissioning of two prominent file-sharing groups - Demonoid and Oink. What kind of impact will the increased crackdown on file-sharing have on the record industry? Did it personally have an effect on you?

Our record got leaked before it came out in 2006, but it doesn't affect me. I do music to write and to tour - I have a day job and people downloading my record for free doesn't affect my check at the food co-op. My stance is more as a downloader, because I do that shit all the time.

Scene Point Blank: What can we look forward to from your band in 2008?

Chemystery of Common Life LP in the Fall, Year of the Rat 12" in the Summer, and a split 12" with Besnard Lakes at some point.

Scene Point Blank: What three records are you looking forward to most in 2008?

A new Spiller 12", new Rammer, and new Julee Cruise.
