ITN Magazine: What do you think of the music industry right now?I try not to. I think, much like most things, it's become primarily a popularity contest. Who is getting signed to what label and who gets the big shows with the big bands that come through. There's not a lot of encouragement for experimental music, in my opinion. It almost seems like most labels, fans and bands just want to keep rehashing Black Sabbath riffs or Led Zeppelin-style Blues-based songwriting. It's kind of discouraging. Especially when Black Sabbath had so much more to them than just the typical Doom Metal offerings; they were jazz-as-fuck. I'd like to see more variance and appreciation for weirder music in the industry. Bands like Wizard Rifle and Indian Handcrafts, for example, and even goofy ol' Mutoid Man. I try to follow in the footsteps of Bongripper, who are such a great band when it comes to work ethic and DIY mentality. They do all of their own work themselves, bypassing the need for a typical label, and I appreciate the hell out of that.
