80 Proof - 80 Proof Newsletter Interview

12 Dec 2005 // An interview by Shade
Which NZ artist/band do you think will be a huge international success one day?


Who would you most like to tour with?

Motley Crue

What is your most embarrassing concert moment?

2004 Battle Of The Bands finals in Christchurch. The band I was in at the time, EUCLiD, got through to the finals. However "Phil the bass player" turned up as we were setting up on stage. He was stoned, and went on to screw up every one of the songs, which were all writen by him?

What are you planning on doing during 2006?

80 Proof plan to record and release a record sometime early in 2006, as well as make a rock video to plug on the tele.

How did you come up with the name 80 Proof?

It was writen on our favourite bottle of rum

What is in your CD collection at home?

[Ed. Ok, there were way too many to list, but a fine collection of albums lives within the 80 Proof house]

What advice would you give other budding musicians/bands?

Get a "Real Job" as this one doesn't pay. Only do it if you really feel it, other wise you will be disappointed.

80 Proof are a Rock band from Christchurch. We asked band member 'keat' to come up with some answers to our questions. However, since this interview, some of the band members have parted ways, and 80 Proof are no more.

About 80 Proof

The most explosive rock band to come out of Christchurch.

They mix old style AC/DC riffs with up-beat rock that hits you in the groin while the blistering lead breaks and gritty vocals tear you apart at the seams.

If you want rock, You'll get it!
