Erik Winger 3QS040

Erik Winger on 3 Questions and a Song #40 With KISS being in the headlines again about Tommy and Eric wearing Ace and Peter's make up, what are you thoughts on that and what line up do you think was the best KISS line up? Can you tell us a little bit about your musical history? How many times do you get asked if you're related to Kip Winger? - asked by Bobby C of Royal Honey on Episode 39 About the Song: Ballerina was a song I wrote about not one girl, but kind of an amalgamation of girls I was dating at the time.

American Jive – Royal Honey 3QS039

Photo by EMSU 3 Questions for Bobby C & Eric of Royal Honey You guys recently got to play a few shows (pandemic effected their schedule), how did that feel? If they were to make a Rockumentary about Royal Honey, who would play each of you in the film? Ofilia, of the Band Areshenic from Episode 38, would like to know why are there no females in your band? About the Song, American Jive: American Jive was one of Royal Honey's first original tunes and has been in their live set since the start of the band. It was written by Dave Musick and recorded by Jazz Byers for the Rattle Clack Compilation 2020. It was also included as a bonus track on Royal Honey's first CD "Hype, Money And Misbehavior" which is available from their website, Bandcamp, and all major streaming outlets. In a year full of turmoil and disease, American Jive somewhat prophetically asks the audience "Are you glad to be alive?" About the Royal Honey: Where to find them: Location: Pittsburgh, PA, USA Genre: Swagg-n-Roll People ask all the time where the name Royal Honey comes from? Drummer Angelo Amantea says with his swaggitude “I just made it up…It’s what I do! I’ve been naming bands for years!” That’s not all they’ve been doing for years. Royal Honey brings together some of the best talent and experience in the rust belt region. The band has only been together since 2018, but its members go way back in the local steel city scene, having played renowned clubs like The Decade, Graffiti, The Electric Banana, 31st Street Pub, and Someplace Else regularly. They’ve also all played up and down the major east coast cities, prior to forming Royal Honey. These guys have been around the block a bunch of times. Coming from previous bands including The Dirty Charms, The Ultimatics, The Cheats, The Addicts, Lize, The Science Fiction Idols, The Cosmosonics, Child of Fire, Kill Bossa, Rainstation Zero and Gas Tiger, they’ve got the experience and pedigree to write great catchy songs and put on killer energetic shows!

Arshenic 3QS038

3 Questions for Arshenic If you had the ability to go back in time and to front any band in history, which band would you join? Can you tell me about the moment, that you realized that you wanted to be a musician? Tom Tikka wanted from the band the Impersonators (episode 037) would like to know who you consider your influences to be and what influenced your logo? About the Song: Where did you sleep last night was the song written by Leadbelly. The song is most known by Nirvana's MTV unplugged performance. April is the month of Kurt's death so we wanted to honour him by making our own interpretation of the song. We went to studio 3 weeks ago when the Coronavirus started to spread in Poland and the restrictions started. After a week, we couldn't stay home, any longer so we decided to record that song and the epidemic theme music video.

The Impersonators 3QS037

Tommi Tikka, of the Impersonators, takes his turn at 3 Questions and a Song If you could go back in time and follow a band around for a full year to learn from, who would it be and why? If you were able to go out and headline a tour, what bands would you want to open for you? Bonus Question: What album would you want to hear again for the very first time? Who exactly are you impersonating, and I kinda want to the know the story behind the Sad Cafe EP- asked by Matt Matigan of Psithurism in episode 036 About the Song, Cloud Nine “(It) started taking shape after a therapy session, during which I was made to reflect on what my role has been in pretty much each and every one of my relationships. Although it was hard to admit at first, I soon came to realize that I’ve always been the so called “designated driver,” the one who abstains from getting what he wants so those around him can be content.” He continues, “Unaware of my soul search, Antti sent me a beautiful poem about a couple growing old together. I remember reading it and laughing out loud, thinking I wouldn’t be able to write anything in that vein…and yet, the lyrics for the chorus were missing! A few days went by before I returned to the poem but as soon as I did, it hit me. Whether right or wrong, why not just write about what comes most naturally to me: trying to assure the happiness of the people I love. Before I knew it I had the words of the chorus figured out.” About the Impersonators ul#socialmenu li { display:inline; list-style:none; padding-right:10px; padding-left:0px; margin-left:0px; } Where to find them: Location: Finland Genre: Indie Rock Comprising Tom Tikka and lyricist Antti Autio, The Impersonators are just that: a duo which masquerades as a full band and does everything it can to defy convention – whether that being their insistence on avoiding touring or their songs, which home in on the warts-and-all gnarliness of love and real life. In fact, if one were to find a common theme that runs through the group’s entire catalog, it would probably be how life very seldom resembles or turns out like Disney fantasies. Despite their poignant lyrics, The Impersonators are still a joyous and sweet proposition, with their vocal harmonies and chiming chords harking back to such 60s pop majesties as The Beatles, The Byrds and The Beach Boys. Together with their secret weapon, producer Janne Saksa, The Impersonators craft their lyrics and melodies into retro-flavoured “alternative pop/rock”. While adding a modern twist to the final soundscape, their goal is to nurture and cultivate the creativity, spirit, and warmth that graced the pop records of yesteryears.

Psithurism 3QS036

Matt Matigan of Psithurism tempts fate with 3 Questions and a Song What would you tell a Pittsburgh band coming to Chicago's scene to play? If there was an apocalyptic event and a handful of people were left on the Earth with just one song from every band, which Psithurism song should survive? Where did the name Psithurism come from? Bonus Question - if you could sit on a bench for a hour and talk to any musician in history, who would you talk to and what would you ask about? The Song: Bloodlust Location: Chicago Genre: Metal Psithurism's first EP was entirely self-recorded and produced but this song marked a change in not only the songwriting but was also the first track that was actually mixed and mastered in a studio. The sound is a bit more dynamic than the material on the first EP. Lyrically, it was a bit of a social commentary. The song is about the current political climate and how people on both sides say that they wish that we could all just listen to each other and try to see both sides and move forward yet nobody is taking any steps towards actually making that happen and everyone just stays mad at each other. About Psithurism Psithurism started off as Daanish and Caleb, 2 friends from high school and Mike, one of Daanish's coworkers. The 3 of them jammed and steadily wrote music over the course of a couple of years and decided to finalize the lineup in 2018. Matt, the vocalist, joined in the summer of 2018 and the bassist, Bart, joined not too long after that. They come from a wide range of influences but all share a love of technical music and after everything was all said and done, ended up with a style that is both very heavy but also very technical and structured. They've released an EP & 2 standalone singles and have played a number of shows around Chicago including opening for national headliners and playing in shows made up of local acts.

Ray Powers 3QS035

3 Questions for Ray Powers Having started touring at the age of 15 and being into different aspects of the music industry over your lifetime, what do you believe was your biggest moment? You can pick 1 album that you’ve already heard to erase the memories of having heard it, and go back to listen to it like it’s the first time again. What would it be? Do you prefer working with artists on the production side of things, or performing in front of an audience? asked by Shock Frenzy in episode 34. About the song, It's You This is my second-ever solo single, originally released in 2013 and remains a mainstay in my live set. I composed the music and lyrics unassisted. Music comes to me effortlessly, but lyrics can be a challenge. When I hit a speed bump on the lyric is when I'll typically reach out for a collaborator, but 'It's You' pretty much flowed for me. I laugh when I hear a recording artist say that they can't pick a favorite song because, how you do play favorites among your 'babies'? Songs evoke feelings, but songs don't have feelings that can be hurt. 'It's You' is my favorite. I'm excited that the 2020 Remaster will give this and others a fresh new life on the airwaves. About Ray Powers Band Location: New York, NY Band Genre: Rock Ray Powers promised something special for 2020, and has delivered with a remastered compilation album of his chart-topping singles, limited-availability B-sides and previously unreleased songs in Decade Of Singles (2011-2019).
