MT Q & A
Which genre local quartet falls into is anyone's guess.
Published: February 26, 2014
Matt: Well, what you’re not grasping here is that most of these groups, these “bands,” are nothing more than a bunch of young scientists conducting sonic mind-control experiments on the populace-at-large via “websites” such as Soundcloud or Huffington Post, and Feelings falls squarely within this tradition.
Simms: Everyone has a band. If you try hard enough to make friends and drill your shit into the ground, you might be able to play your music to audiences of an above-average size.
MT: Any special meaning behind the band name, Feelings?
Mark: It’s not ironic.
MATT: It is ironic.
Simms: I thought it was meant to be snarky. Like making fun of something “precious.”
Buick: If you have to ask, you wouldn’t understand.
MT: What are you working toward next?
Mark: Playing outside Detroit.
Simms: Getting big in Japan, at least …
Matt: … world domination …
Buick: … and some new recordings.
Feelings plays with Mountains and Rainbows at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 7, at the Park Bar; 2040 Park Ave., Detroit; 313-962-2933; $5.
