One Question Interviews: Meek is Murder

Mike Keller (Meek Is Murder)

SPB: What do you think of cassettes?

Keller: Whenever people try to give us band demos on CD, I’m always like, “Sorry, we’re only set up for tapes.” Our van has a tape deck and for a while I had no way of playing CDs at home since my computer had the Aliens DVD stuck in the drive for like two years (not complaining). I have a walkman though. We put out a tape called “88 mph” once and I was pleasantly surprised that it sold out immediately. A couple of those songs we re-recorded for “Into the Sun” but I always liked the tape versions better. One day Aliens pooped out for no reason. I got scared and pushed it back in.
