Boston Band Crush Interview:

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most like to have a One Night Band with?
IM: It was Peter Moore for years… then I joined his band 6 years later we’re still going strong! I would have loved to play with PM5K’s original lineup (back when they were Organizized, not MTVizized) Other favorites would be John Dragonetti, Crazy Eddie Nowik, Duncan Wilder Johnson.

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most fear having a One Night Band with?
IM: Des from The Bentmen.

BBC: What is your normal song or part writing process? Will writing three songs in a single day drastically differ from your usual approach to creating music?
IM: I always write songs in the studio.  Painstakingly tuning and perfecting each note over the course of months.  I have no idea how I’m going to translate this style to ONB… it will be trying something completely new.

BBC: What Boston band do you have the biggest crush on right now?
IM: Tie between Math The Band and Oxytocin.
