What was your first gig like? Nerve wrecking, it’s nervous when you are alone and rely on a lot technical gadgets to work. Playing with others provides a feeling of safety in numbers.

Why do you think that they exist? It might a human need, it binds people together when they do things that resonates with each other.
Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? It’s so hard to keep track of all new bands, but the algorithms can help you find new good music.
What have been your biggest obstacles? Translate the songs to the stage, getting some live routine.
What advice would you give other bands or artists? Do what you want and don’t follow trends just to be popular, do it for fun.
Do you have any new material? yes I’m constantly working on sex stuff.
