Local Headliners Untapped

Interview --- 1.  Can you tell us about the journey of Tess & The Details, from forming the band to signing with Double Helix Records and Engineer Records? Tess & the Details began as a singer-songwriter project. In 2020, Tess went to the studio to record an EP, where she met Jacob and Gideon. After releasing the first EP, "Patient 139," Tess and Gideon became close friends and started writing songs together. By the beginning of 2021, they realized they had enough material for

Interview --- 1.  How has transitioning from Corduroy to Minus 1, and now to Proteus, influenced your music? When Corduroy was formed as a 5-piece Pearl Jam tribute, our band’s goals and inspirations were very different. I had taken almost a decade off from playing guitar and joined the band on a whim to try to get back into music. The other original member from Corduroy, Sean, had never performed live with a band before. We both felt fairly neutral about Pearl Jam’s music,

Interview --- 1.  What were your early musical experiences like, and how did they lead you to start the band Future Crooks? In the echoes of my earliest musical memories, my other brother would blast Metallica and ACDC in his giant red truck hurtling through time. Also, in my possession was a collection of scrolls, otherwise known as analogue cassette tapes, featuring 'The Lion King,' Sublime, and No Doubt. When I turned 8, I embarked on a journey across the misty mountains to Oregon,

Interview --- 1.  Can you tell us about the origins of King Julian and how the band came together in San Diego, CA? We’d all seen each other play throughout the scene with other groups. Each of us probably has a different story for when and how the band officially started, but the first time Nolan and Hunter jammed was in a buddy’s backyard party after Nolan’s then band’s set. After that, Matt, Nolan and Hunter got together to jam and from there all

Interview --- 1.  What was it about punk rock in particular that drew you in? I think I heard The Clash on the radio. I remember that I would go to the library when I was super young, like in middle school, and just check out CDs that I thought looked punk. And that’s how I got into Asian Man Records stuff. Like, I picked up Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms, and that kind of led me on the whole journey that I’ve been

Interview --- 1.  Where did the name Kit Major come from? So, Kit Major actually came from my sister. My nickname is Kit. And then Major came actually from a Charlie XCX concert. I used to go by CAT with all capital letters. I was looking at the bill and I saw other people with their names in capital letters and I was just like, I can't see my name on this bill. I can already tell. And so I wanted to have a

Interview --- 1. Tommy and Shea, I read the first day you met in 6th grade you got into a fist fight? Who won? Shea: We did get in a fist fight, yeah. Tommy: There’ve been a couple along the way. Shea: Once or twice. It was at the pool at his parents’ house. Tommy: No one really remembers who won. Shea: I don’t know if there was a definitive victor or not. I think we just stopped and I left, and I didn’t think I wanted to

Interview --- 1. Tell us about the first show you ever played. I’m trying to think if that was me and a band in high school. There was this thing called Griffstock, because we were the Griffins, so we just would cover Tame Impala, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Zeppelin. It was in the cafeteria of my high school. I sang a couple songs. My high school friends and I actually had a little band reunion two years ago. That was cute. That was

Interview --- 1.  Which came first in your life: drums or singing? Drums. I went to a parade at 4 years old, saw the local marching band, went home and fashioned a drum out of a bucket and marched around the house. --- 2.  What did you play in your first band? Drums. And I sang a cover of “Message in a Bottle” by The Police while playing drums. --- 3.  You recently started playing guitar. What was it like picking up a new instrument at this point? Frustrating, because

Interview --- 1.  How did you guys meet? Nate: I met Max. We went to the same middle school. I met him in 7th grade, but in 8th grade we finally had more classes together. We kind of just started talking. We liked a couple of the same bands, played some of the same games and stuff, and kinda merged friend groups. Then we just started playing music together. We’d jam for years and years. Finally, junior year we started to take music pretty
