Eric Scobie (Great Reversals)
SPB: How did you get involved with Jay Maas for the To the Ends of the Earth 10"?
Scobie: We got involved with Jay because we all absolutely loved the first two Defeater records, and when we heard he recorded them we admired them even more. Jay's ability to capture both the heaviness and emotional vulnerability present on those records was really attractive to us. I did a little more research and discovered he had also recorded Shipwreck A.D.'s Abyss (which is a collective favorite for us), as well as Bane, I Rise, etc. and we were sold. So basically we just reached out and emailed him, explained the concept for the record and crossed our fingers. Much to our surprise, he responded pretty quickly and said he'd be into it. We exchanged a few more emails and then locked the dates in.
