So I wanted to do an "interview" of my fictional 90's (1993) grunge band Mudpuppy (who are associated with my series "When I was an alien and have yet to be introduced on here but I really felt like doing this and honestly....I'm a little bored XD)
So I conjured up some questions! (well....some on the internet and some I made up XD)
(Jonas and Jude are 24, Keegan is 19, and "Caveman" Chance is 26)
1. Introduce yourselves!
Jonas: Hey I'm Jonas and IIIII am the lead singer for Mudpuppy!
Jude: I'm Jude and I *shakes head to whip dreadlocks around* am the lead guitarist! *laughs*
Keegan: I'm Keegan...I play bass
"Caveman" Chance: I'm Chance but everybody calls me "Caveman" *laughs a little*
2. Where did you guys originate?
Jonas: Portland, Oregon actually....but we're inspired by the seattle sound! heheh
When and how did your guys band start?
"Caveman": I think it was either mid or late 1989, I went to highscool with Jonas and Jude and later on we were roomates together. I was learning to play drums at the time and Jude already knew guitar so I told them we should start a band
Jonas: Yeah, I also played bass for that time being....but I thought maybe we should audition people to be the bass player...
Keegan: I saw the flyer to auditon I was only 15! but I really wanted to try out so I met up with the guys and started to play "Anarchy in the UK" *laughs a little*
Jonas: By the time we decided to choose him to be our bassist, *turns to Keegan* Keegan here was already in some place in northern California! *laughs*
Keegan: *laughs* Yeah but in '92 we ended up moving back. I had Jonas's phone number still so I called him up on the nearest pay phone in the airport and told him I was back, interesting story huh? heheh
3. Why do you guys play?
Jude: Artistic integrity....mm hmm...
4. What was the first song you learned?
Jonas: I used to sing along to my Led zeppelin records....
Jude: "Rosemary's garden" by Grateful dead, I learned to play a lot of folk songs
Keegan: I used to play along to Aerosmith songs...or atleast tried to heheh
"Caveman": I....actually can't really remember....but I remember when I was a kid I used to have the facepaint and firecrackers and threw little KISS concerts in my backyard *laughs alittle* that count? *laughs*
5. What bands influence you?
Jonas: Well when we started in '89 we weren't really sure where to take our music...and then one day I listened to Soundgarden's "Louder than love" and I was thinking "We should do this kind of music too" heheh, we also really like Pearl jam, Mother love bone, Stone temple pilots and pretty much tons of other bands...not just limited to the grunge genre...
6. Do you get nervouse before a show?
Jonas: No, that's pretty much my time to let off a ton of raw energy *laughs*
Jude: Not really no....I just hope people dont' think we blow! *laughs*
7. Any tattoos or peircings? ( )
Jude: I have a nose ring!
"Caveman": I have this psychedellic looking sun on my back....I'm not gonna get it colored in though...,
8. Anything new coming up?
Jonas: We're gonna come out with our independently released album "Mother of war what is it good for" in a month or so...still gonna be passing out a few demo tapes every now and then at our gigs....
Jude: pretty much
"Caveman": mmm hmmm
