One Question Interviews: Sex Rays

Joe Holland (Sex Rays, Violent Shifters)

SPB: Do you wear earplugs when you play? Why/why not?. 

Holland: I almost always wear hearing protection at rehearsals, shooting range style "ear muffs" are the best, in my opinion. In most cases I do wear earplugs when I go to shows as a spectator, especially if the band is not "worth" the hearing loss. I generally do not wear ear plugs when I perform onstage myself. It looks lame and feels "risky" to me, like I might fuck up the song or miss a cue. There's no doubt I'm destroying my hearing, but I just cannot seem to perform comfortably while wearing ear plugs...
