LOTTO Interview: The Blistering Speeds – Room to Rock Artist

Editor’s Note:   The LOTTO Interview was one of the features for my weekly music column, Urb’l (Urban Cool) Remedy, that was part of Zubterrain, the e-zine of the Zonisphere Media Group.  That site is undergoing an indefinite overhaul; so, my column is currently on hiatus.  For the purpose of this series of interviews, I’ve decided to use the LOTTO Interview format here at THE REAL popolio.

I will be MCing Room to Read’s 2nd Annual Room to Rock music showcase and fundraiser event on Friday, August 26, 2011, at Peckerheads on Sixth (6th and Trinity).  Doors open at 7:30PM.  Show starts at 8PM.

Starting today, to countdown to the event, I will be featuring a daily LOTTO Interview (through Thursday) with each of the featured bands –  The Blistering Speeds, Feedback, The Shears, and Day vs. Night ( BTW, that is the order they perform in, but not necessarily the order of the interviews).

Get the 411 here, RSVP at the Facebook Event Page, and learn more about the organization at the official site.

Just as they will be doing on Friday, the Blistering Speeds kick off our Room to Rock LOTTO Interviews.

The idea is simple.  I have a list of questions that are a mixed bag of musical, fun, serious, and silly. The Blistering Speeds chose five numbers from 1 through 100 without getting to see the questions. The questions they answered for this interview are the questions that corresponded with the numbers that were chosen.  The list is currently holding steady at 100.

Watch the Blistering Speeds play “Acca of Hexham” from a Maggie Mae’s show captured on Balcony TV Austin.  Read their LOTTO Interview below.

UR:  What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
BS:  Justin Timberlake.

UR:  Tell me something good.
BS:  …if you call in the next 5 minutes, they’ll double your order.  But, you do have to pay separate shipping and handling.

UR:  Have you created your magnum opus project, yet? If so, which one, and why is that it?
BS:  Honest answer:  We will probably feel that way about our first album.  Because it will be three fucking discs long.

UR:  If an “anglophile” is a fan of all things British, what do you call a fan of the good ole’ US of A?
BS:  Patriot.

UR:  You can do one song with any musician, artist, band or group, who is it?
BS:  To keep this local, there’s this band in town called Field Dress that’s doing some interesting stuff.
