One Question Interviews: The Brokedowns

Jon Balun (The Brokedowns)

SPB: You scream a lot. Has that gotten easier or harder on your voice as you're no longer in your 20s?

Balun: I have talked to my personal physician. He strongly agrees with my strict regimen of cigarette smoking and whiskey shots to warm up the ol' vocal  cords. He also recommends that Kris, Eric, and  Moose take turns rabbit-punching my throat for a few minutes before playing. This is essential to getting that sweet quality that my voice possess. Honestly, my voice feels the same. It's actually kinda weak for the first 2 days of a tour. Then, it sustains.
