12. SALVO LOTTO Interview
The Year 3 Number 12 spot goes to SALVO. ATX in the house again! Represent! Represent! Like NYC-based Sariah at Number 12 before her, this rank is impressive because this interview only went live on Tuesday, August 9, 2011.
Interesting also because I wasn’t sure if both of our schedules were going to allow this interview to see the light of the day, but SALVO got it to me and I posted it! And here it is at Number 12. Not too shabby! Shows that SALVO’s got mad support from her peeps.
The LOTTO Interview is a variation of THE REAL popolio pop quiz interview. I created it for a stint as a weekly music columnist at Zubterrain, e-zine of Zonisphere Media Group, based in New York, which is now on a hiatus due to a site overhaul. I brought my LOTTO format over to popolio and started using it a bit.
I wanted something standardized, but that would allow for more variability in and the interpretation of those questions, the answers, and the order of the questions. I also wanted more of a balance in the mix of the type of questions. As I created my 100 list of questions, I made sure everyone other question was a musical question and tried to balance the fun ones with serious and pop cultural ones.
This is only the second LOTTO Interview to make the Year 3 countdown. The first featured another ATX-based band, Feedback, who tied with a BB Gun Johnny pop quiz at Number 28.
