Streetwise Scarlet - Streetwise Scarlet Newsletter Interview

12 Feb 2007 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Sam for answering the following questions:

1) What is your greatest achievement?

Our greatest achievement as a band would have to be getting our record done over the Christmas / New Year break this year, it has been a long time coming I guess.

We did it with Justyn Pilbrow (Elemeno P) at The Lab, we had a glorious many days living underground that we wont easily forget. J-Pill squeezed some amazing tunes out of us that we are very proud of. Hoping it should be on store shelves around mid-year.

Personally we have all achieved many great feats, 2006 was a pretty tough one for all of us but we continue to kick ass and take names. Keep and eye out for our record ‘Try Hold Me Down’ coming soon. You will be amazed.

2) What do you think could be done to make NZ music even better?

We have to write better songs. We have to record better songs and we have to take it to the world. The people with the power and the money in NZ need to get better at supporting the right talent and making it happen. Soon enough there will be egg on many peoples faces. We all like eggs, but not on our faces.

3) Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

Anywhere but here (at my office cubicle sweating because the air conditioning don’t work right).

4) What is the best thing about making music?

Everything. We love making music because we have to, its what we are on this earth to do. The 4 of us weren’t sent here to iron sheets or sell cars.

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

Write great songs. Be real. Entertain me.
