Run Ruby Run - Run Ruby Run Newsletter Interview

29 Aug 2010 // An interview by Shade

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

Will: An EP release, and awesome live shows. 
Jimmy: 
Recording at York Street!
Chris: Bigger crowds, more fun.
Ron: High energy live shows across venues up and down the country.

How do you come up with your lyrics?
 

Will: Most of the time it's actually the same way TMV do it - take sounds, sentences, words or notes and jam along with the guys, then re-write them into shape with meaning behind them later. I guess it's like getting raw iron and shaping it into tools. 

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

Will: Don't give in. 
Ron: Take small wins.
Chris:
 Work hard and keep at it, and don't be afraid to try open your eyes to other music.
Jimmy: If you're a songwriter it can be hard collaborating with other people at first. But once you find the right people it actually makes for better, more diverse and original songs. Be patient and don't settle for being in a band with the wrong people, you'll just get frustrated and demotivated.

Who would you most like to support live?
 

Jimmy: SOAD (if they were still together).
Will: Incubus.
Ron: Breaking Benjamin.
Chris: Blink 182 , haha.

How do you describe Run Ruby Run’s music?

Ron: Punchy, Heavy and harmonious. 
Will: Loud, hard, fast and fun. 
Jimmy:
 Bad-ass yet fun.
Chris: Prog-rock with a touch of teen angst.

How do you believe Run Ruby Run fits into the NZ music industry? 

Will: I think there's a middle ground in NZ that very few bands tread. There's a lot of metal and a lot of indie/pop, but not too much in between. We intend to plant a massive flag on that space. 
Jimmy:
 Yeah, what Will said.
Ron: Run Ruby Run looks to bring high energy live acts into the NZ music industry. We don't only want to be playing in your heads phones at the gym, we want our concerts to be all the cardiovascular activity you need! 
Chris:
 Hahaha, Ron pretty much said it, I prefer playing to crowds than recording but both are good.

What can you never leave home without?

 

Ron: Giving Ruby some attention.
Will: Someone asking me to get something from the supermarket.
Jimmy: The big three: wallet, phone and keys. Always do a pocket check. :P
Chris: Pants is usually a good one, although I have forgotten them a couple of times.

What is the best part of being a musician? 

Will: Seeing someone enjoy your music as much as you do. 
Jimmy: There's an indescribable feeling when you're playing something awesome that you came up with yourself or as a band.
Ron: Seeing others enjoy your tracks at their parties. 
Chris: Being in a band is like having another family. You all speak your own language and understand each other.

What is in your CD collection at home? 

Chris: AFI, Coheed & Cambria, Blink 182, Korn, JT (Timberlake), Fly My Pretties, Alexisonfire, heaps of NZ Music.
Will: Incubus, RHCP, House Vs Hurricane, The Mars Volta, All Time Low, SOTY, Pendulum, The Prodigy Maximum The Hormone. 
Jimmy: SOAD, Breaking Benjamin, RATM, Muse, Old Metallica albums, Incubus, Jimmy Eat World, Korn, Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, P.O.D, Weezer, Kora, Manowar!
Ron: Breaking Benjamin, Tool, Papa Roach, Fall Out Boy, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Britney Spears, Element Eighty, SOAD.

What rumour would you like to start about Run Ruby Run?

Will: "If you do something crazy and original at a gig you'll get a song written about you".
Ron: "I hear that Run Ruby Run has the best looking fans".
Jimmy: "I hear that Run Ruby Run has the best looking band members"
Chris: "Is that the band that do tornado kicks and back flips everywhere?"
