1QI: Michael Yonkers, Animal Style, Puregrainaudio, Dying Sea Lachrymose

One of our features 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 Dying Sea Lacrymose, Michael Yonkers, Puregrainaudio, and Animal Style Records.

Dying Sea Lachrymose

SPB: How did your adviser enjoy the 7” you created for your internship?

Dying Sea Lachrymose: Haha, hilarious. She was horrified, yet gave me an A. Possibly out of intimidation.

 

Michael Yonkers

SPB: How does it feel to revisit music from so long ago? Are you the type of musician that enjoys playing and listening to a full back catalog or are you the type who tends to release an album and move on to the next project?

Yonkers: It is a very odd feeling, to say the least. I have been doing music for 52 years, so going back in time is quite a trip. It is not only the music, but the associated memories too. 

I do go back in time, from time to time. But, mostly I am in a forward leaning position. I don't think there is any "right" or "wrong" way to look at (listen to) history. A lot can be learned from the past. For me, the past is too overwhelming to deal with on a regular basis.

So, the answer to your question is...

I am a person who mostly "moves on."

 

Chris (PureGrainAudio.com)

SPB: Who is a band that’s taking seemingly forever to release their next album?

Chris: This is a cheeky response, but I’d have to go with Rage Against The Machine. If there’s any one band who, while technically not currently together, has taken forever to release new music, it has to be RATM. A group whose socio-political oriented lyrics and revolution-inducing sounds literally changed the face of music are nothing short of insanely overdue to drop new material.

 

Matt (Animal Style Records)

SPB: What was the first punk show you attended?

Matt: Does this count? Mayfest in ‘98 at the University of Redlands: Blink 182, The Aquabats, Home Grown, Assorted Jelly Beans
