1QI: Amoeba Records, War on Women, Kitten Crisis, Groovie Ghoulies

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview four days each week, typically every Monday-Thursday.

 

After our social media followers get the first word, we post a wrap-up here at the site and archive them here. This week check out Q&As with Amoeba Records, War on Women, Kitten Crisis and Groovie Ghoulies.

Marc Weinstein (Amoeba Records, co-owner)

SPB: What shift in listening format has been the most surprising in your run as a store?

Marc: The most surprising shift was back in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s when everybody was convinced they needed to buy their collection over again on this new "improved" format called a "CD..." CDs offered a degree of enhanced "portability,” yes, but the sound and experience seemed diminished to us record store folk, from Day One, NOT TO MENTION they cost less than half as much to make and cost twice as much to buy.

LPs still rule in terms of experience.

War on Women

SPB: Basements or bars (or both)?

War on Women: That's like asking “day or night,” “loud or quiet,” “happy or sad.”

You can't appreciate one without the other, regardless of preference. But no one has ever chipped their tooth moshing to us in a bar...but a guy did stick his head inside our kick drum in the Star Bar's basement in Atlanta, and then Brooks rode him like a horse for the rest of the song. So, ok, the answer is both!

Kyle Hall (Kitten Crisis)

SPB: What is the longest (in time) tour you’ve been on? Would you do it again?

Kyle: I've been on a few tours that have been over a month but so far, never much more than that. Yes, I would do it again! In a heartbeat. I love being on tour. My band Kitten Crisis is talking about doing a 60 day tour where we play all 48 of the continental U.S. states sometime in the future, and I am really looking forward to that. 

Kepi Ghoulie (Groovie Ghoulies, solo)

SPB: What is your favorite Christmas song?

Kepi: Anything from A Charlie Brown Christmas, anything from Bob Dylan - Christmas in the Heart, or "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" by Neil Diamond

OR

"The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" by Bowie/Crosby
