24. Scissors For Lefty [Bryan Garza] pop quiz
In our second month of existence, I thought I’d be slick and feature a pop quiz from each member of a 5-member band. That band was Scissors For Lefty (which was made up of two sets of brothers and an uncle).
And, that month was October 2008, which I christened Scissors For Lefty Month. That way, it was special and I had content for every Friday of the month.
It was a model I had hoped to recreate with other bands, but never did. So, October 2008 is the only time I featured pop quiz interviews with each individual member of a group.
Bryan Garza, the lead vocalist, kicked off the month with the only the second ever popolio pop quiz interview that went live on Friday, October 3, 2008. His bandmates’ pop quizzes posted every consecutive Friday after that until the end the month.
Something interesting to point out is that I used to link the artist’s website (official, MySpace, Facebook, or otherwise) as a separate link from the pic of their latest project’s cover. At some point, I started linking their websites directly to the pictures of their covers.
See the original post here — Scissors For Lefty [Bryan Garza] pop quiz. It includes their song, “Lay Down Your Weapons.” Actually, they gave me a different song to stream with each pop quiz, including a couple of pre-release new tracks. That was very generous of them.
Bryan’s fave old school joint was the D.O.C.’s “It’s Funky Enough,” so you can watch that video along with his interview.
