Why this name?
Terry & I are relatively short
Do you play live?
Not for a while.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Access & exposure
Finding long lost writing partners.
Finding collaborators.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If they said yes to all the artistic freedom, money & acoutrements we required, (so, no - actually that's a fib - if we had artistic freedom we'd be in like Flynn)
Band History:
From the ashes of the Teutonics, the Talented Few, Naked Igwanaz & Laughter On Mars with the advent of home recording we rose, phoenix like, to bother the neighbours.
Your influences?
Terry - blues, jazz, Tom Waites, Ben Hur & Apocalypse Now.
Ray - 60's metal, pub rock, punk, power pop, noisenics, E.C., TLOTRings & Z grade movies.
Roland - chips & punches
Favorite spot?
The sweet spot between good hi fi speakers or in our lady's arms.
Equipment used:
Whatever we can get our hands on - garage sales & online auctions. Terry has a nice sax & flute ray has, essentially, no name gear.
Anything else...?
Age shall weary us & the years condemn but that's what rockin' chairs are for.
This is ray
