Our newest feature here at Scene Point Blank is our semi-daily quickie Q&A: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Well, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week regardless.
After our social media followers get the first word, we'll later post a wrap-up here at the site. This week check out Q&As with members of Liar in Wait, Mammoth Grinder, Among Giants, and Sutekh Hexen.
Jim (Liar in Wait)
SPB: What makes for a good host when you sleep on a stranger’s floor?
Jim: A good host gives you a floor to sleep on period. If you're lucky enough to have 4 walls for an evening, that's amazing. Anything is better than a Wal-Mart parking lot.
Chris Ulsh (Mammoth Grinder)
SPB: What is the weirdest description you’ve heard of your music? Do you think it’s accurate in any way or can you see where it came from?
Ulsh: In the earliest years of our band we played a show in downtown Dallas. I don't remember who the show was with, most likely for the best. The band after us had just played a song when they said, "I wanna thank Mammoth Grinder, awesome skate thrash from Austin." My brain completed a series of backflips before I realized this guy had seen us skating before the show while we were trying to kill time in Deep Ellum. Three 6 foot tall ogres cruising around a parking lot, born to do anything but skate and not landing a single trick. Still not sure who the bigger poser was that night.
Greg (Among Giants)
SPB: How many vans have you had? (Any stories?)
Greg: We've been using my Mom's minivan to travel around for the past two tours, but we're finally getting our own minivan this summer so we can tour a bunch more. One time Zach ripped the door handle right off of the door of my Mom's minivan. He thought he was the hulk for a few weeks after. Is that considered a cool story? I'm going to go with no, but you be the judge.
SPB: What was your favorite band in high school? How do they influence your songwriting today?
Sutekh Hexen: One of my favorite bands in high school was Nirvana. The track "Negative Creep" off the Bleach album was so damn heavy AND fast, which at that time was unknown to me. A lot of parts still drift in and out of my memory. It is a great album!
I guess if there were any sort of lasting influence, it would be based more on their early playing and recording techniques. That playing was so raw and shitty. Also, that record sounds awful…But I suppose that's the lasting charm of it.
That and we honestly don't give a flying fuck about what other people want to hear…
