The latest and greatest…

I scheduled an interview with Nacho Business (Candice Adams, Heather Crocker and Alec Roberts) to talk about their newest 7” EP not knowing what questions to ask or where to even start.   Nacho Business has been around for a few years and they like to talk about themselves with the usual self-deprecating humor that you can find at their shows.  They’re funny, but mostly at their own expense.  We’ve done this interview once before, a year ago, but the notes are long lost and we’re starting from scratch.  Minutes before we’re to meet there’s a bit of confusion over when and where the interview will take place and I eventually find Alec in a local downtown bar, watching basketball.  We talk about his car, his job – and after almost 10 minutes – the angry bartender finally asks if I want a drink.  She’s either drunk or just doesn’t care to make eye contact.  We spot Heather through the window, but she’s motioning that she needs to finish her coffee. She ends up coming in, coffee cup in hand.  The bartender is not happy with us and can’t appreciate Heather’s commentary on the comings and goings of the bar.  Soon, Candice arrives and we move to a table in the back.  We order food and Candice pulls out a warm quesadilla she was storing in her purse.

Matt K Goes Bananas

Wanna know what’s in the head of Matt K?  He was kind enough to answer our questions… his flexi “Matt K Goes Bananas” is out now.  Get yours at Scott Soriano’s Record Night or Time Tested Books .
1. How do you describe your drumming style?
Ringo Moon.
2. Do you think your style carries over into everything you do or does it change, depending on who you play with?
I guess my “style” gets twisted a bit depending on who i’m playing with, but there’s always gonna be some genuine spastic shit going on whatever’s being played, especially in the gin doctors, a band where we play only gin blossoms and spin doctors songs.  it’s the worst band i’ve ever been in.
