One of our features 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 Hollow Earth, Kitten Forever, 6131 Records, and Ben Snakepit.
Mike Moynihan (Hollow Earth-guitar)
SPB: What do you listen to the most in the van?
Moynihan: For the most part, driver listens to whatever they want, which could honestly be anything. We all come from very different musical backgrounds, so our taste is pretty eclectic. What we like to do to make sure everyone wins is to make an "on the go" playlist on an iPod, then each person picks 10 songs. We put the playlist on shuffle and let it ride! Everyone gets one "veto" that can be used to skip whatever song is playing, no questions asked.
SPB: What do you do to ensure you don't lose your voice onstage?
We gargle with male tears.
Sean Rhorer (6131 Records)
SPB: What’s your favorite cover song to listen to/see performed?
Rhorer: I'm not a huge fan of covers, but it's hard not to love the Quicksand cover of The Smiths song "How Soon Is Now?" The Smiths are my favorite band, but this is actually one of my least favorite songs from their catalogue, so hearing a revamped version courtesy of Walter and gang is great. Arguably, it's a better version than the original, although it would have been cool to hear their take on the full version as opposed to the shortened rendition they did. Nevertheless, it's by far one of the best covers ever recorded.
Ben Snakepit (cartoonist)
SPB: Who is your favorite flyer artist?
Snakepit: My favorite flyer artist is Jack Barfield at Neolithic Print. He does flyers for most of the big hardcore shows here in Austin. He has a very distinct, bold style that is unmistakable when you see it (he's responsible for all of the Chaos in Tejas posters) and he also happens to be a good buddy of mine.
