One Question Interviews: Look Mexico

Matt Agrella (Look Mexico)
SPB: Who does the majority of the band’s driving?

Agrella: Driving. We try to divvy this up pretty evenly, though some of our biggest arguments will be over petty "No, you still have 15 minutes left," or "You're stopping now?" We've figured out that 3 hour shifts work for us, but a lot of bartering goes down. Say, if Smith doesn't want to drive his shift tomorrow night, he'll pull a 6-er now. On the other hand, I've seen 3 hungover dudes split a 2-hour drive. Speaking of that, now that I don't drink, I'm the permanent DD (I do like being safe). I'm also the "city driver." It's not that I'm better at maneuvering through busy, gridlocked streets, but more that I don't hate it as much as the other guys. On one occasion, before we realized we should just take up two lanes on a NYC bridge, I was "cruising" down the Williamsburg Bridge with our 26-ft Veggie-Oil Bus, wondering what the awful scraping noise was. Yeah, it was me, hugging the guard rail.

In short, I guess I drive more. But I'm not mad about it.
