Jeff Noller (Skittish)
SPB: How has the increasing digitalization of the music industry changed how you listen to music?
Jeff: I feel like I hear a lot less “deep cuts.” I used to be limited to only the CDs I brought with me on a trip, thus propelling me into the depths of an album rarely explored. Which led to a lot of songs that I ended up liking more than the main hits. It was also nice to rip open a package and lay on the floor perusing through the booklet artwork as the album plays. All of this gave me more of a connection to the artist. Now I've traded connection for convenience. Which, I suppose, can be applied to many things in this digital age.
Brian Corn (QUOR)
SPB: Is there a regional food you look forward to on every tour?
Brian: The Pacific Northwest always has fantastic salmon. I particularly like the sashimi versions offered throughout the region. I have had amazing cuts of salmon in even the most unlikely of places up there between Portland and Vancouver, BC; everywhere from casino cafeterias to straight-up grocery store deli’s.
SPB: What’s the best movie you’ve seen this year?
Matt: Coherence. No other movie I've seen really communicates an almost paralyzing amount of uncertainty.
Øyvind (Livstid – guitar)
SPB: If you had your choice, which band would you love to tour with?
Øyvind: A tour with Livstid and Icon of Evil would be a truly sick affair. They serve their slabs of death in the vein of Bolt Thrower. And if you got a grindcore band as well, Death Toll 80k for instance, then you'd have the perfect bill; ripping Norwegian d-beat punk in unholy union with crusty Polish death metal and Finnish grindcore devastation in the brutal style. What a fucking riot it'd be!
