Here is an exlusive interview with Neil Spies - guitarist and lyricist of Los Angeles art-punkers S.T.U.N.
UGO: How is the Warped Tour?
Neil Spies: Good, but Texas is hot as hell.
UGO: I hear that.
NS: Yeah, and we just came from Sacramento, and it was like a hundred and twenty degrees.
UGO: How do you deal with the heat on-stage?
NS: We deal with it pretty easy, I think. Our show is so energetic that we don't notice.
UGO: I'm curious about the cover of the album, with the guy and the target on his back. What is up with that?
NS: The cover is kind of thought provoking. There are ideas behind some of the things that we did. Some give a feel for the record and some are mysterious. Overall, the cover is supposed to exemplify the record with look and feel. The target doesn't mean anything.
UGO: When people hear your music, do you want them to get the message, or are you just happy if they dig the music?
NS: I don't think you can listen to it and not get an idea of what is going on. It's not force feed. There are a lot of messages in the music and some of them are left up to interpretation. Some are information, and some are just thoughts.
