We're proud to introduce a new series here at Scene Point Blank: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Well, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week.
After our social media followers get the first word, we'll later post a wrap-up here at the site. Check out our quickie Q&As below with members of Tomahawk/Fantômas, Melvins, Baroness, and Twelve Gauge Records!
Trevor Dunn (Tomahawk, Melvins Lite, Fantomas, and formerly of Mr. Bungle)
SPB: What part of your live show is the hardest on sound engineers?
Dunn: I wouldn't know because 1) I stand in front of my 8x10 so that I have the best possible sound in the entire place and that's all I care about and 2) we bring our own sound guy. We not only pay him to make us sound good but also to keep his mouth shut and not whine. I wish I was a millionaire so I could pay more people for that in particular.
Buzz Osborne (Melvins/Melvins Lite)
SPB: After music, what other arts are of prominent interest to you?
Osborne: Painting holds a deep interest with me. My favorite painter is Francis Bacon with Manuel Ocampo running a close second. I wish I could paint but instead I will simply enjoy them!
Pete Adams (Baroness)
SPB: Who was your favorite band in high school? How do they influence your songwriting today?
Adams: The Stray Cats. I love rockabilly and psychobilly. Brian Setzer has been my only real inspiration as far as guitarists are concerned. I've always tried in corporate something Setzer might have done/ sounds like he would have done in just about every song I've written in the last 15-16 years.
Jihad Rabah (Twelve Gauge Records)
SPB: What is the most thankless job in the music industry?
Rabah: The role of preparing a new release for distribution while meeting their 10,000 requirements.
