Axis Mile - Axis Mile Newsletter Interview

13 Aug 2007 // An interview by Shade
1) What is your greatest achievement?

Umm being together for this long. It’s not easy being in a band with a bunch of lazy boys. On a more serious note we won the shore youth bands competition back in 2005 – that’s kind of our claim to fame. We got a free days recording at York Street so that was pretty sweet.

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

It’s hard without the money in the economy. Things aren’t looking too good on the CD sales side of things but digital media is really helping people get out there with things like myspace etc. TXTTUNES is helping NZ music heaps. As Brad told me its all about the musicians and it actually is. There’s no catch. Big ups to Brad and Matt for thinking of the genius idea!

3) Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

Hopefully playing shows that people actually come too. But les be realistic if you want to make it big time in music industry NZ isn’t really the place for you. We want to stay here and we will until get a name for ourselves. There’s no point going over seas if you can’t do anything in NZ.

4) What is the best thing about making music?

Having other people enjoy it. That’s the best part by far. If you can jump on stage play a set and have people come up to you afterwards and tell you how much they enjoyed your music that’s one of the best feelings. Bonding with ur band (sounds a bit gay) but its really satisfying playing music in the practise room that you enjoy. And if u enjoy that then who cares about anything else!

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

Aren’t all musicians aspiring? Even us! I don’t think we are at the level where we can tell anyone what to do yet, but there’s the obvious things like practise, don’t sleep with other band members girlfriends and just go hard on stage. Even if your playing to a crowd of 10 people sitting at the back of the bar. You have to pretend your Bruce Dickinson playing in front of 250 thousand screaming Brazilians!
