From the years 2000 to 2002 I ran an online zine, Actionattackhelicopter, along with my friends, Brian and Josh. I was fortunate to interview many musicians whose work I enjoyed. I’m posting some of those interviews here for anyone who may have missed them the first time. They have been edited for length, relevance, and to correct for my poor editing skills at the time of original publication. Keep in mind that these were done over a dozen years ago, thus individuals’ opinions, thoughts, and ideas may no longer be relevant, but they are still interesting as a snapshot of a particular time and place.
This interview was done in the summer of 2000.
Avail are fucking rednecks; beer drinking, chain smoking, tattooed freaks. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. They create some of the best sing along punk rock songs and have been doing so for what seems like forever. Their live show never lets down as it contains the raw, fresh energy of punk with the fierceness of hardcore and melds it all together with a sincere vulnerability. Always a good time, I recently sat out back of the Emerson Theater in Indianapolis to talk with Tim Barry, the lead singer, and other members of the entourage who proceeded to float in and out as time went by.
