The Rescues - 06.11.10The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:

The Rescues


1. How did you get your band name?
We all have different meanings for being on both ends of the rescuing, but it is becoming more and more apparent that the name is getting more meaningful.

2. How did this band get started?
We were all fans of each other, and wrote together in different ways. Then a friend asked us to play. And we kept playing. And writing. And recording. And suddenly we were unable to stop.

3. What bands are you influenced by?
The Cars, Indigo Girls, Radiohead, Patty Griffin and Pantera.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would it be and why?
We would love to tour with anyone that has a great deli tray. Katy perry has nice vittles we hear.

5. If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?

6. Why should people listen to your band?
Because it is beautiful music with meaningful lyrics that has a bond between four people making a sound you haven't heard before on an album where every song is great.

7. If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?
"Follow Me Back Into The Sun". It would be very hard because we've never played the game before.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?
We would thank 1000000 people, and would all probably have to talk all at once.

People would buy albums again.

Playing on the roof of the Chicago Hilton.

A great place to learn about what's coming.

Follow me back into the sun. Complex beats/rhythms and a lot to concentrate on.
