|Bludded Head Session|
ONE: Bludded Head’s lineup has changed significantly since your last Violitionist Session. Tell us about the new lineup and what prompted the change.
Nevada: Mike left. So I asked Beth in hopes that we could get some shit together for a show in a week. Beth and I have been playing improv stuff for a while. He has also been to several Bludded Head shows, so it was a easy fit. Ryan was added because Darcy was talking about taking off. It was actually the idea of Justin Lemons for Ryan to come in. Ryan played a 5 string bass for a few practices then got his electric upright. We were doing a recording with at the time. I’m really enjoying this lineup. It is going to change in June. It will be constantly rotating kinda like the Zanzibar Snails. It’s easier to operate that way.
TWO: What is the songwriting process like?
Nevada: Songwriting process has been incredibly quick. There is a lot of crying, backstabbing and screaming. I will come in with a stupid riff, then you just run it through the meat grinder and see what comes out. The songs will also write themselves the longer that we play them out.
THREE: Do you have any plans to record a full length album?
Nevada: Yes, we are recording at the end of the month at Eagle Audio with Britt [Robisheaux]. I’m really looking forward to it. I want to record all the different lineups so there is something to look back on.
