Where is the group from and how long have you been here?
John is from Asheville, N.C., and met Hunter a little over a year ago in the summer of 2012.
We met through some friends and ended up working at a liquor store together for some time (Cha-Del's on 40th and Bull streets.)
We set up a little jam session ... Hunter had his project (which was just him at the time) Wet Socks.
We played one night and then it just sort of became a routine. Work till midnight, then jam until 3 a.m. or so working on songs.
Hunter is from Atlanta, and went to SCAD Atlanta for two years for film and broadcasting before coming to Savannah for his junior year.
He had been playing music for a while and joined another local band called Triathalon on lead guitar. ... We have been playing shows for about a year now.
Who are some of your musical influences?
The Gories, Oblivians, Reatards, Black Flag, Coachwhips, The Sonics ... There are more but we'll just leave it at that.
Your sound in three words:
PUNK JOHNNY CASH?
What are some of your favorite Savannah venues and why?
I would say our favorite "venue" would be Hang Fire ...
1. Cool owners.
2. Great bar royalties.
3. They are the only venue that is downtown and would let a band like us play.
That is, now that Sparetime has closed.
What's in the future for your band?
A new record label has just come into the works called Retro Futurist started by the band Kylesa from Savannah, fronted by Phillip Cope and Laura Pleasants.
We will be recording an album with them in early February at their recording studio in Columbia, S.C.
They have already got a huge following and we are VERY excited! Should be a ton of fun.
We are also having an EP release party Jan. 9 at Hang Fire for our new album, recorded at Dollhouse Studios and put out on the Soft Science Record Label.
