Drinking.

 

How did you come up with the name Turbostill?

 

Combining turbo and distilling, trying to get drunk quick.

 

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

 

All shows at Mai Farm, The Primitive rock n' roll fest out there was cool, and so have all the other shows we have played by a fire down by the river in the valley.
