Submit Question
Q: Please name each members favorite artists!
A: Carl: I’ve been enamored with Guided By Voices for years. Bob Pollard is my songwriting idol. He cranks out tunes like they were the life blood in his veins, and perhaps they are. Additionally, I’d say the Archers of Loaf, Pavement, Superchunk, Sunny Day Real Estate, and The Smiths have had a lot to do with my playing style, and songwriting choices. Lyle: I’m heavily influenced by Manchester Orchestra, Radiohead, Colour Revolt, Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, and the Raconteurs. Jeff: Influences include Sunny Day Real Estate, Band of Horses, David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Death Cab for Cutie, Blur, Matthew Sweet, Buddy Holly, and Company of Thieves. Joel: influences are: Herbie Hancock, Emerson Lake and Palmer, the Beatles, Rush, Kansas, Bach, Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, Harry Nilsson. Those have held the top spots the most consistently since I started drumming.
