Favorite Santa Cruz bands?
Chris: Ribsey’s Nickel

So, you guys are “Sick and Tired?”
Chris: Sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Neil: That song is getting old. It was on the last CD.
Chris: We are working on a new CD. We are going to mix it up a bit with some slower stuff, but we will still have the heavy songs. We play all different kinds of music, blues, reggae, so we like to mix it up.
Neil: We have, like, 10 reggae songs and we’ll do some free jam jazz for hours. We even have a couple new covers we are going to throw in the set.
Fire’s Fury is playing at The Blue Lagoon for the Your Music Olympicks. What do you like about the Blue Lagoon?
Chris: It’s got great sound. I like the controversy of it being a “different” kind of bar.
Eli: Good location with a good local draw.
Neil: I like Henflings too. The Blue and Henflings are our favorite places to play. We like to work with Eric from Renegade Sound. He just recorded our demo a couple of weeks ago and we’ll have him keep doing it. At his live shows he never just sets it and forgets it. He’s always there working on the sound.
Myspace or Facebook?
Neil: Myspace just because you can have your songs on there. They changed it on us like a month or two ago; I had to totally redo it.
If you could be sponsored by any instrument company who would it be?
Chris: DW Drums.
Neil: Musicman Bass
Eli: Probably Fender, Mesa Boogie for my amp. Then I could shove my guitar through my amp and not worry about it.
