One Question Interviews: High Priests

High Priests (Mikey)

SPB: How did you “discover” punk rock?

Mikey: Well, like a lot of folks out there, I had older relatives who got me into music; who started bands; and brought music I had never heard into my ears. I’d watch my cousin practice at my Aunt’s house and then they’d show me a cd or two that I’d then listen to constantly. I’d read the liner notes of the album, whilst listening to the album start to finish, and would look up any and every band they listed as influences or tour mates.  I’d go to the Library (luckily my home town library had an amazing selection) and type in the word “punk” into the database system. They had and get a wide arrange of music that would be considered in the realm of punk-which opened my mind even more to music. I’d max out my library card with cds and continue to do with those albums what I did before reading the liner notes. 

This way I got not only super in to punk music but music in general. I began going to house shows and all ages punk shows when one of my older cousins got his license and found a whole realm of different punk communities near my home town.
