Who are your favourite NZ bands and artists?

What is your favourite NZ venue?

The Opera House, Wellington

What is the best thing about being in Gramsci?

The freedom to explore songs without adhering to genres.

What is the best live gig you have ever been to?

Not the one I expected it to be - Portishead at the North Shore Events Centre - shouldn't have worked but it blew me away.

Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

Continuing to make music with friends and moving closer to the sound in my head...

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Generally on various back alleys of the internet

What rumour would you like to start about yourselves?

That we are currently in negotiations with George Lucas to rescore the Star Wars films.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Don't think of the beat in a bar as a dot to land on, but as a circle to land in.
