INTERVIEW WITH FROGBOX
Rocking the Rissole II Oct '19
What first got you into music?
Jacob - I’ve always been attracted to it since a young age. So I guess you could say my parents played a massive role in that.
Cody - My dad owned a music store when I was younger and I always found myself playing with the instruments. I particularly took a liking to drums most of all. My parents have supported my craving for playing music, god bless them.
Lewis - it all started with the dad rock in the backseat of the car on road trips, eventually after watching AC/DC live at river plate DVD I decided to get a paper jam, shortly after that I got my first tea electric guitar. However before learning guitar I learnt saxophone
Who inspired you to make music?
Jacob - Dave Grohl has always been my idol
Cody - Travis Barkera
Lewis - Cliff burton
What makes you guys as a band click?
We just do, it’s hard to describe. We play off each other really well and just know each others playing inside and out. We get on well outside of the band environment so that presumably has a fair amount to do with it, on top of having very similar tastes in music.
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Usually we go with a fast paced high energy style in our song writing. We don’t limit ourselves to a style or a specific genre, we honestly just create things that we think sound cool to us.
What is your creative process like?
Basically, one of us will come up with a riff or a beat then we play on from there, sometimes we end up with a gem other times we don’t. It’s more of spur of the moment kind of thing, that’s the way we go about creating our music.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
Jacob - Foo fighters, Catfish and the bottlemen or Arctic Monkeys. Too hard to choose
Cody - blink 182, foo fighters and green day
Lewis- definitely foo fighters and arctic monkeys, green day, dear Seattle
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
Jacob - Foo Fighters
Cody -as above
Lewis- as above
Do you have any upcoming shows(other than rockin the rissole)?
We’re playing at the milk factory on the 11th of October!
What is your favourite song to perform?
Jacob - Either Reach or Rose coloured glasses
Cody - Rose coloured glasses and Animal
Lewis – Reach
Which famous musicians/bands do you admire?
Jacob - Honestly too many to name but if I had to boil it down it would be Dave Grohl, Vann McCann and Alex Turner
Cody - travis barker, dave grohl, dream theater and jet
Lewis - Paul McCartney, Dave grohl make a really mad duo
What’s next for you?
We’ve got our minds set on recording another Ep then hopefully sticking our heads into some venues down in Sydney and Melbourne!
Who would win in an arm wrestle, Lemmy or God?
Lemmy is god?? Can’t arm wrestle yourself
