Dave Hoenack (Hymie’s Records-Minneapolis, MN)
SPB: What is your preferred way to store vinyl in a home?
Dave: We believe records are best stored as near your turntable as possible. A comfy couch in the same area sure helps.
SPB: How has technology changed the recording process for you between your first professional-level recordings and today?
En Esch: When I started out we worked with an Emax SE Sampler with 512k memory space saved onto a floppy disk. For each song we had very minimal and especially short samples to pick from. Now I could spend the rest of my life listening to all the sounds and effects I have. That makes it complicated to achieve your goal compared to the old times when we just had one good bass sound and one good kick drum etc. Creativity was fast and direct. Now a days you spend a lot more time deciding what to use from all that’s available.
SPB: What was the best show you’ve seen in the past year?
Matthi: Sand at PDF Summer Bash in Osaka. Sand killed it as usual and people got crazy as fuck. Nobody cared about anything anymore. Just pure chaos.
Matt Finney (It Only Gets Worse)
SPB: How many vans have you had?
Matt: Never owned a van myself but my parents had an Astrovan in the late 90s/early 2000s. I remember my younger sister getting her hand slammed in it at least three times. No idea how that's even possible.
