Eqwanox - Eqwanox Newsletter Interview

05 Oct 2008 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Nick for answering these questions:

What is the best gig/event you have ever performed at, and why?

Opening for Billy Corgan was an overwhelming experience considering it was our 4th gig and 2 of us were still in 6th form at High School, but the last 3 years we have done some guest band spots at the Smokefree Rockquest and each year those are highlights for me.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

The Kings Arms always has a great vibe. I loved playing a Rockquest Guest Band show at the TSB Showplace in May of this year, awesome little theatre with heaps of heaps of people.

What can we expect to see from Eqwanox over the next year?

We want to release a hard copy of our album 'All Roads Lead From Here' which we have just released online. We are finishing off the year with a North Island tour and also playing gigs with Seether at Vector Arena in Auckland (Nov 8th) and with the Bleeders at Diggers Backbar in Hamilton (November 7th).

What other NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Recently we played a show with a band called 29 Blackbirds and Grace Falls. Both those bands played awesome sets it would be great to see people checking them out at all there shows. Both bands had great singers and great musicianship. I'm also really into At A Loose End at the moment and we are stoked to be playing with them in October and hopefully a heap in the future. They got a cool Punk Rock sound.

If you could, what rumour would you start about Eqwanox?

That we recorded our album at Dave Grohl's home studio and that we are going on tour with them to promote it ha, that would be something incredible!

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

Don't hold back, get out there and do what you want to do, record some demo's, set up a myspace page, find other bands online and contact them about shows etc, burn off some copies of your demos and give them away at shows and send them out to people who may be interested in your band even the slightest bit. Just get busy so people know youre out there.
