D.B. Cooper Duo - 05.24.12

Interviewed by
D.B. Cooper Duo - 05.24.12The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:

D.B. Cooper Duo


Interview with Al Cook of D.B. Cooper Duo

1. How did you guys get your band name?

It was as simple as Brian Gross-Bias and myself having a few drinks and throwing around some band names one night. We had some terrible names until one of us mentioned D.B. Cooper Duo. We had never talked about D.B. Cooper, but his story was something we both found intriguing, so the name went through the 2 week band name test and succeeded.

2. How did this band get started?

Brian and I both studied Recording Industry Studies at Butler University. We had a couple of music classes together and eventually took a few Independent Studies together, where we were able to write and record together. The rest was history.

3. What bands are you influenced by?

Our influences span from many different genres. We both have an affinity for post-hardcore/punk bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Taking Back Sunday, A Day to Remember, Underoath, Thrice, and Sky Eats Airplane. Some less obvious influences of ours include Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Daft Punk, Massive Attack, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Between the Buried and Me, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Crystal Castles.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?

It’s be awesome to tour with any of the bands we just mentioned, but also other artists like Skrillex, My Body Sings Electric, Cloudkicker, and Brand New. Wouldn’t mind touring with Jimi Hendrix or King Crimson as well.

5. Best food to eat on tour?

Probably Denny’s.

6. Why should people listen to your band?

We meld together post-hardcore with dance, electronica, punk, pop, and experimental genres. We offer a lot of variety, so there is always something for someone.

7. If you could be any athlete, which athlete would you switch places with?

I’d love to be Eric Berry or Paul George, but that’s because I am a big Kansas City Chiefs and Indiana Pacers fan.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?

We would first thank Rob Courtney, who has produced, mixed, and mastered our music and is a friend of ours. We would also thank Pat Hurley, a teacher of ours from Butler University. We’d also thank all of our friends and family for their unconditional support.

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?

We would want to change the way big record labels construct their contracts. Most contracts for artists these days give them no chance to succeed because they are too far in the hill to dig themselves out.

10. Memorable tour experience?

Unfortunately, we are looking for band members to join the Duo, so we haven’t experience much on tour. We hope to find a full-time drummer, bassist, guitarist (maybe), and a programmer/synthesizer player.

11. What does AP.net mean to you?

AP is one of our favorite sites for discovering (and rediscovering) music. It has a great online community who appreciate good music. Definitely one of our favorite music sites on the web.

12. What is your favorite song to play?

We have only played a few songs together, so it would probably be “Knotting Hill” off our self-titled debut album.

13. What is your vacation spot of choice?

My vacation spot of choice would be on the beach in Charleston, SC. My family travels there a lot, so it is one of my favorite places.

14. What music reminds you of your childhood?

The Eagles, James Taylor, and Steely Dan remind me of my childhood because my father always played that music when I was little.

15. If you could have any super power, what would it be? Why?

I would want superhuman strength so I could physically do anything I wanted (besides flying).

16. Any pre-show superstitions or rituals?

We make sure to have a few drinks to get us relaxed and loose.

17. What is something that most fans don't know about you?

I am a pretty good cook. It’s not just my last name.

18. What is your assessment of the current state of radio? Do you think it's a place where your band could flourish?

Radio is still an important media outlet, but it is not as important for smaller artists. Depending on the song though, I think our band could flourish on broadcast or satellite radio. Sirius XM provides good niche radio stations, so we could find spots that could play our songs depending on the genre.

19. What do you like to do in your spare time?

We love spending time with our friends and seeing other bands play. We love playing video games and watching television shows like Breaking Bad and Parks and Recreation.

20. What kind of hidden talents do you have?

I’m pretty awesome at cornhole (also called bag toss). It’s a dumb game, but it’s really fun.
