One Question Interviews: The Blind Shake

Mike Blaha (The Blind Shake)

SPB: You have now released records on a lot of labels. What do you enjoy about changing affiliation with each release?

Blaha: I think the best part about label Mormonism is discovering the newer or lesser publicized bands on a label. For example, Thee Oh Sees are one of the best bands on the planet, but without being on Castle Face's roster we wouldn't have known and played with an insane band like Running, now one of our favorite bands live and recorded. There are several more examples, but I recommend people go deeper into the catalogs of all the labels we've been on and find out for themselves how much great stuff is right within reach.
