Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview three days each week, typically every Tuesday-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 Something Is Waiting, Somni and Knife Hits. 

Eddie Gobbo (Something Is Waiting)

SPB: What is your favorite album cover of all time?

Eddie: Bruce Springsteen - Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ

Luke (Somni)

SPB: What is the best movie you’ve seen this year?

Luke: I've seen a lot of great films this year, so this is tricky. I'm going to go with The Witch (dir: Robert Eggers), a great little horror film set in yee olde times featuring a goat called Black Philip. It was brilliant! I'm a big horror fan, and this was what I'd call a proper horror film, but others might not. By that I mean that it doesn't rely on jump scares or gore, instead building up tension through the atmosphere and the relationships between the characters. For me it was about loss, isolation, family, hysteria, madness and evil goats -  a perfect date-night movie! I'd love to see more horror films like this (or films in general), so grounded in realism you can taste the dirt under the characters' fingernails, so if there's any magic, witchery or general strange goings-on you're much more likely to go with it. Check it out!

Jake Smith (Knife Hits)

SPB: Who is your favorite flyer/gigposter artist?

Jake: I narrowed my answer to a tie between two amazing artists and they happen to be two of my best friends. From my earliest days of playing shows in Florida (about 15 years ago), Vivek Vasudeva made the coolest flyers for our bands, I remember one that looked like the National Enquirer with pictures of "bat boy" and each headline was a piece of information about the show. He STILL makes amazing posters/flyers for shows in his now hometown of Portland, OR. My other favorite is Ryan Fromdeland, sometimes he throws together flyers in Photoshop that look like newspaper clippings from science fiction movies in the ‘60s, or sometimes he'll draw something by hand with a unique style, extreme detail, and always punk as fuck. Over the years, these two artists really seem to have influenced each other. It's amazing to watch friends influence one another with their art whether it be music or pen on paper, or anything else.
