3 INCHES OF BLOOD: Emo Bands Need To Die By Our Hands
This is interview from April from the fallen Jamie Hooper. It's prefest but it's a great read. Some highlights:
PunkTV.ca: You guys are big rock stars now and you can afford to buy a new band on the road.
This is definitely not the case. We’re about the poorest mother fuckers around, or mofos for the CRTC.
PunkTV.ca: What’s your per diem?
Ten bucks a day and that doesn’t go very far when you’re smoking a pack of cigarettes…
PunkTV.ca: And drinking as much beer as you do.
Ya exactly. That’s like a 6 pack and that’s about it.
PunkTV.ca: I bet you’re happy to get back to B.C. and Alberta where at least you know where to buy good weed cheap.
Especially Alberta where the beer’s cheaper too. Coming out from the U.S. and coming to Canada it’s like 3 times as much for a 6 pack. You can get a 6 pack of PBR in Washington state for like 2.99 and those are tall boys. It’s the deal of the century.
PunkTV.ca: Even the emo bands, do they need to unite?
Fuck them. They don’t need to unite, they need to die by our hands.
And for the Mickster:
PunkTV.ca: What would surprise kids most to learn about you or Three Inches of Blood?
That we’re all big Neil Diamond fans.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
