The Rabble - The Rabble Newsletter Interview

06 May 2007 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Chazz for these answers

1) What is your greatest achievement?

I'd have to say playing with The Unseen from Boston USA would be my greatest achievement. They are one of my favourite bands of all time, and are amazing live. I'm still amazed we played with them. Apart from that, making it to number 1 on C4 Select Live ruled too. (Thanks to all the fans who helped us get up there, you rock).

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

Perhaps if a little more radio stations opened their minds and played a more diverse set list of NZ songs that would make NZ music better. But it's pretty good as it is.

3) Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

I'd like to be touring the world in 5 years, possibly with a band like The Unseen, or Rancid. That's my dream, and I'm going to make sure it comes true. I will be making music my whole life though, it's what I live for.

4) What is the best thing about making music?

For me, the best thing about making music, is being in the recording studio putting down the layers, and hearing your song come to life. I really love that, I also LOVE playing live. It's amazing. It gives me a huge buzz.

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

Keep at it. You wont get anywhere over night. Good things, DO take time.

About The Rabble

“Musically, this New Zealand trio has talent coming out of every pore and have truly perfected their craft.” - MutinyZine

“…A sound that is the band’s own and it’s a formidable, tumultuous, pulsating Punk Rock beat that’s as addictive as it is enjoyable!” - Scannerzine

Like a banner of hope rising in the midst of a battalion of soldiers; The Rabble hit the scene - joining in the march of a new generation. With an onslaught of soulful Punk Rock, they paint a picture of spirit in the face of adversity - with tales of life, death, love and hate. The unrelenting trio, originating from Auckland City, New Zealand: dedicate their lives to bringing the enthusiasm back to Rock ‘n Roll - taking their anthemic, barbed-wire assault to the Northern Hemisphere this year. Forget the stereotypes - this is a band who’s sound is tearing down the barriers of commercial mediocrity!
