Why this name?
Say it to yourself a few times and the answer will become clear.
Do you play live?
Used to play live a lot. Less now. Could be more in the future.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The term: "Music Industry" is an oxymoron. Music is a gift from the gods to the meager humans. Excessive profiting from music is akin to sin.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
That would be an interesting conversation.

Spots on rugs are my faves.
Fire and brimstone.
