Summon: How did the band get started? How did you meet and how long have you been together?
Band: I put a short ad in metal maniacs and this fucking freak Doug beckoned my mailbox. We got together found some other sub humanoids underneath a rock and started playing together. A true epic saga of massive undulating proportional I think it’s a Kodak moment.

 

 

Summon: How would you describe your music?

Summon: What made you want to be in the band? And if you weren’t in the band what would you want to be doing now?
Band: I wanted to be in the because I wanted to become the most famous person to ever live in Ludowici, Georgia. If I wasnt in the band i’d probably be married to an axe murderer in a religious cult somewhere in metropolitan Wyoming.

Summon: Who writes the majority of the music?
Band: We went to a “vacation bible school” and got enough inspiration to write our gospel/country/ bluegrass songs together. All praise Billy Ray!

 

 

Summon: Who has been the favorite band you’ve played with? Why?
Band: It’s a real toss-up between the Trixter and Bulletboys shows! They were both really nice to us although I dont think they liked us.

Band: I was driving to Savannah one day and aliens beamed me up while I was sittinf in traffic and it sounded as if they kept saying Gorlock.

Summon: Where do you think the band will be in 20 years from now?
Band: Doug will join a Druid group and curse technology altogether while living in a mountain somewhere. Dave will be on Rex from Pantera’s bass tech group. I’ll be either a porn star or a street clown. Thanks for the great and thorough interview!
