One Question Interviews: Xiu Xiu

Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu)

Stewart: What part of your live show is the hardest on sound engineers?

SPB: Getting the vocals loud enough in the monitors. We have really loud stage volume as I like to be pummeled sonically and we use a drum machine. There are almost always some issues with feedback but we work them out. I need to have the voice be really loud so I am not singing harder than I need to hear myself. This leads to blowing out my voice.

This is a very juvenile problem, but I do not care. It has to be loud.
