1QI: The Feederz, Tomber Lever, The Bigger Empty

Welcome to our semi-regular quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. 

 

After our social media followers get the first word, we previously posted a wrap-up here at the site before archiving them in a massive feed here. Tune into the feed in the future, as we're discontinuing the wrap-up.

 

This week check out Q&As with Tomber Lever, The Bigger Empty, and The Feederz. 

Tomber Lever

SPB: What band has the best logo of all time?

Tomber Lever: We would say that Titus Andronicus has the best band logo! Not only is it a T and A for their name, it’s an upside down cross and an anarchy sign! No Gods, No Masters!

Mike Felumlee (The Bigger Empty)

SPB: Do you wear earplugs when you play? Why/why not?

Felumee: Yes, I wear earplugs now, but have just started wearing them over the last couple of years.

This can be taken as a cautionary tale for the young rockers out there. I'm 42 years old and have been actively playing shows and touring since I was 17. For most of those years I did not wear ear plugs. I just couldn't get over how they seemed to kill the fun and had a hard time dealing with how my drums sounded when playing with them in. Fast forward 25 years and now I have significant hearing loss in my left ear, and very bad tinnitus in my right ear and wish I could go back and make my younger self wear the damn ear plugs! I would suggest that anyone playing live rock music frequently go see an Audiologist and get some custom plugs made. The filters on the custom plugs don't make things quite as muffled sounding as the foam earplugs you can buy at the drug store. You can also select how many db of reduction you want/need. The custom plugs are 100% worth the investment and I'll never play without them again!

Frank Discussion (The Feederz-guitar/vocals)

SPB: How did the current line-up come together?

Discussion: Clear Bob was our first bass player and he still lives in Arizona. Thomas at Slope first contacted him to see if he could reach me about the idea of doing another record. This was right after Annoying Orange won the election, ripping apart the last shred of credibility (and hope) the US government had, so I had to jump into the fray. Our original drummer Art Nouveau died a number of years back, but DH Peligro who played on our first album was down for it. So the lineup is all early Feederz and I think the energy shows it.
