Before their show at the TLA in
Philadelphia, I had the pleasure to sit down with Flickerstick
for a third time. Once again the guys were great and very candid
in their comments. Listen* as we talk about making
music, the new EP & DVD and growing as a band.
1. How good is it to finally have no music out to the public?
2. Were you surprised at all by the reaction to the EP as some
fans had you pegged as "turning emo?"
3. Is the full length CD done yet? Will it have all the songs
on the EP on there or is it all new songs?
4. Is the EP full of old songs or were they new songs that just
didn't make the full length recording?
5. Is this a formula you would like to continue to follow where
it is record, then EP, then record to shorten the length of time
without new studio material out to the public?
6. How much DVD footage did you have to whittle down to get the
7. How were the bands chosen for this tour?
8. Has this tour been as rushed as it has sounded?
9. MP3.com is changing/has changed over and is no longer a home
of independent music. How much has that hurt newer/younger bands?
10. Is the fire still there within the band?
11. Was it strange playing without Dominic when he was out with
his herniated disc?
12. Dominic, has playing with the Mermaid Purse strengthened
the energy to play within the band?
13. Rolling Stone recently put out a list of
their Top 500 CDs of all time...what are your thoughts on the
list and lists like this in general?
I want to thank the guys in Flickerstick for once again taking
the time to talk with me. They are always real nice and cool to
hang with. Keep your eye up for when Flickerstick comes to your
town, you will not be disappointed.
