San Diego rock band alert........
Here's an interview with Project Analogue's Joey Tan:
How did the band form? Well one day I decided to move the drumset from my parents house to my house and then Patrick came over and we made the song "Blind Skeleton." Tuan started coming over and then later Rolando came over as well. for a while we a 3 piece with 4 people so there was a lot of switching instruments around for different songs.
Who is the band? Joey (I play guitar and try to sing), Patrick (drums), Rolando (bass) and Tuan (lead guitar)
How do you all know each other? I met Tuan in 6th grade, Rolando in college and Patrick after college.
Sounds like? Simple, melody driven rock with a heavy 90's influence?
Musical influences? Can't speak for the other fellas but personally, I'm a big fan of Radiohead and the [Smashing} Pumpkins, primarily those are the two biggest.
Where is the band at right now? Excited? Frustrated? We're currently playing around SD at various venues and are in the midst of recording our first full length studio album. I'm pretty excited, we've come a long ways from when we first started :) It's encouraging to see the progress and I'm looking forward to playing more shows!
What do you think of the San Diego music scene? Are you the answer to what it's lacking? The answer to what it's lacking? Haha by no means. I think we are a piece in the collective puzzle. Some people like some pieces more than others and I just hope we're able to connect with those people. Music is very subjective and I think our goal is more to have fun and to make music that we like. If other people are into it as well, then that's really cool.
How do you utilize social networking sites to promote your band? How has it helped your fanbase and connection to fans? Currently we're up on myspace (www.myspace.com/projectanalogue) as well as facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Project-Analogue/5824739613). We've put up our demo's on both sites so people can get familiar with our sound and there's also concert information on there.
Any plans to do shows in other cities other than SD? Eventually yes, but currently think we're concentrating more on getting ourselves known more in San Diego before playing in other cities.
