1. Growing Up
Travelling one hour once a week to get drum lessons is etched into my brain. My parents didn’t play instruments, but were very, very supportive of my brother and me. This support is the reason I’m still playing music.
This changes every week, so I don’t really have an answer. If I see/hear someone doing something that I can’t, I’m inspired and motivated to learn. Spotify is a great tool for finding new and exciting music.
3. Your Band
Facebook.com/psycroptic is the quickest and easiest way for people to find out about us – we’ve been around for about 17 years, so it’s hard to remember everything! We are pretty DIY and handle most things ‘in-house’ so to speak, as Joe our guitarist is an engineer/producer.
4. The Music You Make
Fast riffs, catchy riffs, head-banging music. It’s unapologetically metal.
5. Music, Right Here, Right Now
The scene in general is excellent in Australia, with a lot of great bands getting out and getting it done. Sydney is often a tough one, as there aren’t too many venues available these days. I’m sure it will get better, as it’s something the market is in need of.
