Q:Where did you get your coat for your boxer?!
12 clams and this beautiful tee is yours. Printed on lovely soft AS Colour t-shirts, only available from Hobbledehoy.
Q:how would you recommend a band do their first vinyl release?
Ummm, what do you mean? For the sake of money (vinyl is very expensive), I’d suggest just doing a 7” to start and see what happens. Or see if you go crazy in the process.
Q:Are you and Jamie Hay in a new band together?
Scotty, Jamie and me (see previous photo). But we will never play.
Q:On a scale of 1-10 how much do you enjoy Explosions In The Sky?
4? 5? Only like a couple of their songs and find the rest a but boring.
Q:How much do interns get paid?
We don’t have interns. A lot of internships elsewhere are unpaid.
SNEAK PEAK: THIS WILL DESTROY YOU Another Language vinyl at the production plant in California. Custom Navy goodness.
Q:got any tattoos of hobbledehoy bands?
I don’t. But Jamie Hay and I got matching Hobbledehoy tattoos 4 months ago in Brisbane.
Q:How do you go about signing bands? I want to start my own label but have no clue how I can even bring this up.
I contact the band usually via email, but in some cases spoken with them directly after a show and ask if they’re interested in talking about working together.
Then I explain what we’re all about and ask what the band wants to achieve and how. Sometimes it’s a fast process, sometimes it takes a bit longer.
I’d suggest if you haven’t started yet, release a CD or 7” by a friends band. Keep it simple to start.
Q:do you have video from the last arrows show that you can share?
I took a video of Anders playing drums for about 30 seconds side of stage, but otherwise sadly not. I’m sure it exists somewhere…
