What are your top five albums that were released in 2012? (In order 1-5)
I tried to get brewmaster and certified cicerone Derek Freese from Mexico City Rollers, formerly Spazboy to answer these questions for me but even he got stumped on this. So here's a general list of random 2012isms. As usual, nothing is in order
- Fuck me everything GBV/POLLARD related makes the list. It's been a great year for HEY WHATYA KNOW GUESS WHO JUST CAME ON THE JUKEBOX JUST NOW? people who love rock'n'roll.
- TERRY MALTS - KILLING TIME. I admit I had not been exposed to this wonderful dood/band before this year when I got called in to do sound for this guy. I fell in love at the first chorus of "Not Far from It." No shit, great stuff
- I'm a big fan of Cheap Chinese Android based media devices like the Pivos Xios DS and the MK802. I spent most of my free time pissing around with these. I have this dream of being a walking talking karaoke on demand dood with the mk802. All i need is cargo shorts and a few pints in me.
- AWESOMEFEST 666 and FEST are the bookends to the best time of the year for me. All the bands, friends, and new friends.
- I like having Steve Adamyk Band's records with me at home and when I make DJ sounds. Super fun. As much as I hate it sometimes, I'm really happy to be able to DJ on Thursdays. I make vegan food in a crockpot, play records, get drunk, watch movies and do on demand karaoke.
2012 is the year of fucking off. Working and planning what the fuck to do now that everyone is having babies.
What band did you discover in 2012 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
Lipstick Homicide and Zipppers to Nowhere get added to that yearly ammunition that I acquire to defend the thing I love most against fashionites and "punk is dead" crowd. Sounds high school, but you really do gotta slap the smug out of lazy, good for nothing squares sometimes. Oh, and I put all my New Bomb Turks and Lazy Cowgirls records on mp3 so I can dance at work.
How will you remember 2012? (In terms of music)
It's no differnt than the previous 4000 years I've been alive. Bands make me happy, keep me young, new music and new freinds and new bands a plenty, and it isn't going to stop anytime soon.
What can we look forward to from you in 2013?
Writing songs, frustrating timelines, some European and Japanese touring. Possibly some Canadian shows. Dunnno, maybe start a new band. I ain't gonna do shit but play Fest and sit on my ass lookin' at nerd stuff. Let's get real.
What records are you looking forward to most in 2013?
Have no idea! Bring it on!
Fundraising sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have made a strong impact on the ability of artists to release music. Do you think this approach is a trend, or will it continue to shape how artists produce their material?
The good, it's voluntary. If you are willing to spend money on potential vapor then, by all means, that's great and i'ts getting involved. The downside is, it could be the equivalient of pay to play comps and records and no one wants to wait for some shitty band of future rockstars to finish pressing their punk furniture while we wait for good homespun releases to get waxed. Collective vs. capital.
