The band Never also sent us these answers to our questions in this latest installment of q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
a: This old-timey song from the ’20s on the radio at work.
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?
Iâ€™m not sure the first, but I remember buying a used copy of Nevermind off a kid I played lacrosse with in junior high and it changed my life.
q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?
a: I think I could have benefited from some of the earlier Black Sabbath records, but I guess I wouldnâ€™t be ready for Masters of Reality until I smoked a few hundred joints.
q: What is the last album you purchased?
a: I pre-ordered Horse Jumper of Love.’s new S/T tape. It’s very, very good and everyone should hear it.
q: What is your favorite artist/band to see live?
a: Iâ€™ve been digging seeing Porches because their live show has more intensity than the albums. Itâ€™s the songs I know but turned up.
q: How exactly did you name your band?
a: We originally started out as a two-piece project called Ever, but when we asked Chris to play bass for us, it didn’t fit, so we added the N. New member, new letter. It felt more appropriate with the vibe, anyway.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
a: Women in music finally having their comeuppance; effects pedals; Alkaline Trio
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
a: We’re (emphasis on the “we”) working on writing a full length that’s maybe almost half done. The songs feel significantly more cohesive since our process has been entirely more collaborative than our first batch of songs, which Leanne wrote and brought to us as essentially complete, just lacking bass and drum parts. It’ll probably come out in, like, two years. Put it on your gcals.
