What do you dislike about making music and what do you love about it?
Likes: Getting an excuse to spend money on gear, playing loudly through an amp, playing in a band with friends, that moment when your finished songs plays back across the speakers.
Dislikes: My bank statement after spending money on gear, having to load your gear into the venue, not being able to really get the sound you’re looking for, writing lyrics.
What goes on in your head when you’re on stage?
‘How many songs left?’
What do you get most obsessive about when you’re making music?
I think making sure that the song feels good, sounds good in headphones, and sounds good turned up super loud through speakers. I also want it to sound as direct as possible. Trying to best represent the sounds I hear in my head vs. what comes out at the end is a maddening process.
Who’s a local talent more people should know about?
What’s a quote that made you do something?
‘Billy, you are king of Geelong!’
What record do you think you’ve listened to the most times in your life?
My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
