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 and archive 'em here. This week check out Q&As with Gilead Media, Profound Lore, Luther, and Bouncing Souls.

Adam (Gilead Media)

SPB: Is there a record you passed on releasing that, in retrospect, you really wish you could have worked on?

Adam: There is always one album I totally regret not being able to release. When Ludicra released The Tenant I had the opportunity to potentially release the album on vinyl and, sadly, wasn't able to take on any other releases. I loved the record then, as I still do today, but I was just too overwhelmed with new records at the time and simply could not add another record, let alone a 2LP, to my workload. I feel like that album stands as one of the most remarkable metal records of the last decade and I wish I could've had a part in presenting the physical release.

Chris (Profound Lore Records)

SPB: Do you run your own website, facebook, etc? Do you enjoy that aspect of being a label?

Chris: With the exception of a new webmaster that takes care of the technical aspects of my website, I do run my website, facebook, twitter, and all accounts related to social media. I do quite enjoy it actually because it gives me different avenues to promote releases and bands and just use them as an expansion for that and just use these platforms for expanded dialogue and conversation. For example, I can post stuff on my social networking sites that are not really needed to be posted on my website. Some posts I post on twitter sometimes are not needed to be posted on the label Facebook page, and so on. Of course all noteworthy news gets posted on all outlets all together though.

Nick Harris (Luther)

SPB: What was the first concert you attended?

Harris: The first "concert" I ever attended was The Offspring when I was 12 years-old. The first show I ever went was in the basement of McCorristin High School in Trenton, NJ in 2000. None of the bands that played are still bands, but it was awesome: my mom dropped me off, I saw a circle pit for the first time in my life, and a kid broke his nose. Amazing.

Greg Attonito (Bouncing Souls)

SPB: What makes a good roadie? Have you ever done it?

Attonito: A good roadie cares about the band and making the show go as smoothly as possible. It’s always best when the roadies and band guys enjoying hanging out because 90% of the time you spend on tour is together. If we are all creating a good time together while traveling and working the good time translates effortlessly to the stage performance.

Bryan and I once roadied for a musician named Robert Gordon. This was back in '89 or '90, I think. He is a rockabilly/punk singer who started in the ‘60s and had some fame in the ‘70s and ‘80s. We picked up him and his band in NYC, then took one of them to score some coke somewhere in the Lower East Side. I think they were saying their guitarist played on some Sex Pistols records but I'm not sure about that?? On our way up to the gig in New Haven, CT the wipers in my van stopped working and it was raining pretty hard. Some of the guys in the back were doing coke and kinda freaking out because it was so hard to see. It was a wild ride but we made the gig. We definitely didn't get paid enough.

Siblings & Sevens
Black Numbers (2011)

I remember seeing Luther a few months back at a small venue in Pittsburgh where The Menzingers were headlining. I was really stoked to finally see them live and not all that surprised that half the crowd was outside smoking when they played first. Seeing them live left me with almost the exact impression their EP Siblings and Sevens left … Read more
