Spacejam Band Interview 25/05/20
MM: What would you say is your Bands favorite song ?
Ans: BA Forest by The Cure
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2020
Ans:Recording and playing shows and touring the world. Yes with our record label The Animal Farm Music we're thinking of starting a series of online gigs, like a monthly residency with a four artist bill. We'll do it via Zoom, have everyone do a song at a time with a little banter in between songs and then go around again. It's going to be quite social, centred around the artists talking to one another, as opposed to just playing songs. Technically, it will be a live recording, but not a live broadcast. We'll edit the video a little, and make shorter versions of it for the various social media channels. The Label's CEO - Ville Leppanen - has plenty of great ideas and has been doing a great job since lockdown started he's a great human being and we love him.
MM: What can we expect from Spacejam live
Ans:To blow your minds and take you on a very special trip and to live an unforgettable time on board of our space ship.
MM: What do you like best and worst abt touring
Ans:Best is the interaction with the audience, sharing a unique experience, to give and to receive from your audience. You start a brand new show every time you go out on stage and you never know how the audience will react to what you are giving them.
Worst is missing your loved ones.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
Ans:The Cure - Stereophonics - Foo Fighters
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why

I knew I was experiencing something unique I was fascinated and from then I knew I wanted to be a musician and to play on stage.
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with

MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have
people watching you?
Ans:Oh yes it was at my school I was 14 with my first ever band "The Inflicts" and I played the guitar and I was also the singer and I was yelling out my lyrics like hell and I could see we scared the hell out of them like never before. That was a great experience for me.
