Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Okay, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week.
After our social media followers get the first word, we post a wrap-up here at the site and archive 'em here. This week check out Q&As with A.M.S.G., Gay Witch Abortion, Houseplant Records and Unwelcome Guests.
AngelFukk Witchhammer (AMSG 666)
SPB: How important is Satan to you/the band and what does that belief mean to you?
AngelFukk Witchhammer : Luciferianism for me is breathing /living each day preparing to transcend to the next level of energy transfer. It is utmost freedom and to conquer the highest form of self will/iron will to power and turn to ash all the false illusions of control that hold us so tightly. We worship at the edge of the event horizon...truth and proof of the destroyer of cosmic energy. That belief means everything to me, it is the driving force of my existence.
Jesse (Gay Witch Abortion)
SPB: You’ve played shows out of your van and on a boat, among other locations. What setting has been the most fun or the most challenging to orchestrate?
Jesse: Playing 7 short sets outside 7 different bars in a van in one night was fun. The raft show was great. They just let us drift down the Mississippi with a generator, and they'd come and tow us back up whenever we got too close to St. Anthony Falls.
The most difficult show to orchestrate would probably be when we played on top of the marquee of Memory Lanes Bowling Alley. It was summer and it was fucking hot out, and we lugged everything up a steep, rickety, 2 1/2 foot wide staircase which culminated in a short ladder to the roof. It was tight enough that we had to take the wheels off the 4x12 cabinet to fit it up there. Funny. Later, when we were drunk, it didn't seem as treacherous getting the stuff down.
SPB: Do you run your own website, facebook, twitter, etc. Do you enjoy that side of the industry?
Houseplant Records: Yes, I do run all of those things. I would say they're necessary and I try to find some enjoyment in them when I can, but generally, no, I don't enjoy that aspect of releasing music. I like to be in touch with people, interact, and get feedback through social media but don't like the confines of each format. I actually do like the simplicity of Twitter quite a bit, but often feel like I'm talking to myself on there. A web site is nice because you can make it look and function how you like, but they get less traffic and there is less interaction. Also, they are cumbersome to maintain and redesign.
Micah (Unwelcome Guests)
SPB: If you could hear any band cover one of your songs, which song would it be, and who would play it?
Micha: Hearing Deerhoof cover “Warm Soon” would be pretty wild.
