q and also a :: Fat Heaven
Gayla, Jack and Travis of Fat Heaven sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
gayla: “I Am You” by Off With Their Heads.
jack: “Radio” by Rancid. Had to practice our Halloween set ;)
travis: “Timecop” by Iron Chic.
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?
gayla: Nsync NO STRINGS ATTACHED (haha)
jack: Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits upon the suggestion of my older sister. Thanks Rachael!
travis: Pretty sure it was Smashes, Thrashes, & Hits by Kiss
q: What is the last album that you purchased?
gayla: I honestly have no clue, spent 20 minutes thinking about it.
jack: Elliott Smith’s self-titled vinyl.
travis: Though Gayla doesn’t remember, her most recent purchases were actually 2 cassettes for the van consisting of NOFX’s Liberal Animation and Social Distortion’s Prison Bound. As for myself, other than a couple of cd’s I’ve bought from friends to help with tour expenses it was probably Hey Grandma and the Greatest Hits by No Parents. Its over 30 songs for $5. That’s a good deal.
q: What are your top three desert island discs (the first ones that pop in your head)?
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
gayla: I’m excited about memes right now. Especially doggo memes.
jack: The newest Against Me! record as well as Laura Jane Grace’s new memoir. Looking forward to reading it!
travis: I’m really looking forward to the new Scarboro album.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
gayla: It’s pretty cool.
jack: ’Tough Luck’ was recorded, mixed, and produced ourselves between Studio G Brooklyn and our basement Moffat Heaven. Mastered by Matt Labozza. Lots of time and hard work went into it, and I hope you truly enjoy it.
travis: Basically what Jack said. We worked real hard on this for a long time. I take pride knowing that we did pretty much everything ourselves.
