DIRTY JOE AND THE BRICK WALLS
Shannen interviewed new Olympia HC band, DIRTY JOE AND THE BRICK WALLS, on Facebook for Nuts! #13 (OUT VERY SOON!) but there wasn’t enough room to print it! Here it is:
mike - where are you from? Buffalo, NY what do you love/hate about olympia? I like seeing mountains around town instead of abandoned buildings. I like the amount of coffee and Asian food places here, and seeing seals is cool. As far as music, I just like being able to see bands that would rarely come through the Great Lakes region. And the fact that there are a number of NW bands making awesome music lately. Things I hate here? Nothing that I wouldn’t also hate anywhere else, I guess. It’d be nice if it wasn’t as big a hassle to get kids to pay for shows. Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I play guitar. I enjoy it. I don’t know how much deeper it goes than that. What are you mad about? Most things.
Joey Where are you from? Olympia, Washington. what do you love/hate about olympia? I love that olympia’s rich music scene and some of the people in it. tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I can play guitar, bass and drums. i love playing all three but i have the most fun playing drums… that being said it is mad expensive. What are you mad about? I am mad at entitled kids thinking the world owes them anything.
do you want me to format this differently?
no this looks good!
perfect timing too
are there more coming?
DIRTY IAN - where are you from? Singapore what do you love/hate about olympia? I love that Olympia has motivated people in it and that it takes music seriously. I love that everyone works hard and puts out stuff and creates things. I hate that it has a lot of precocious do nothings who think they’re Jesus Christ. I have learned to avoid them but they seem to come seek me out every once in a while. Fuck em, I could care less what they think because I am way smarter than they are. Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? One time Joey rented a trumpet in 5th grade, he told me that once when we were getting burritos from a taco truck. What are you mad about? People who can convince themselves of anything.
haha ians are direct
any words from you?
Joe Where are you from? Seattle, Wa What do you love/hate about olympia? My friends are the reason I ever moved and still come to Olympia. What is a Day in the life as Joe Mabbatt? Wake up, work, get fucked up and sleep and wake up and work and get fucked up all over again When did you stop wearing wife beaters? or are you still wearing it? lost it at my old house nut hut when i moved out. RIP Tell me about your relationship with your instruments? I sing, play bass and guitar in bands. Singing helps me get anger out while playing bass and guitar is more relaxing for me so it ends up being pretty chill be able to play more than one instrument for bands i’m in. What are you mad at? The world and myself
also recording for a 7” sometime in feb or march
