What was your craziest/most memorable Halloween night?
10/31/2000 Covering "Cherub Rock" with a bikini-clad girl clobbering a pumpkin with a tire iron while we aptly screamed out to the crowd in the mics "We are … smashing pumpkins."
What is your favorite album (ever) that features a Moog instrument?
I mean, is there any other album as influential, meaningful, forward thinking, and mind blowing that it is even possible than Switched on Bach?
Who would win in a fight: analog or digital?
I'm not even gonna touch that argument. Analog junkies are so defensive about their art form and I admit I have found myself salivating to analogue-synth porn …. thank you synthtopia.com. I frequently find that digital has so much more flexibility in the studio, yet its sonic precision is sometimes its downfall. I enjoy living in the digalogue world.
What would you rather be: a zombie or a robot?
Definitely a robot … but not one of the those crazy robots or depressed robots like HAL or Marvin from Hitchhikers Guide … more something like Johnny 5.
What's your favorite Halloween-related song?
I've always been partial to “Night on Bald Mountain,” mainly because it reminds me of watching Fantasia on mushrooms when I was 16.
What is your favorite piece of Moog gear?
I have a fondness to the MG-1, but mainly because of its nostalgia. I recall many times as a young kid going with my dad to Radio Shack (back when that store actually served a purpose) and tweaking all those knobs in amazement.
