Where are you from?
Name of band:
The Smashed Idols.
How would you describe yourselves?
Music is quirky alternative punk with a few screamed lyrics and heavy guitars.
Who are your main influences musically?
Main influences are bands like the Pixies and The Cure, also always dug the Rolling Stones, anything with hooks and driving lyrics. Another big influence is ZZ Topp, but you don't hear that so much on the recorded stuff.. some old school punk like the Dead Boys.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
Just wanna tour around and have a good time. Make people smile and have a good time.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing South Padre Island. It's gorgeous and people are happy to be in paradise.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
A gig at a seedy club where the neon lights on the circuit were messing up our sound (lesson learned). A dude even tried to steal our bass guitar after the gig and it didn't end well for him in the parking lot.
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Well, I've always been partial to Alien Song. It isn't as musically complex as some of our other jams, but it is funny and has a message.
