Interview: Spore Lord


As could be expected from the instrumental stoner band, Sporelord doesn't speak too much, but they let their playing do their talking.

But check out what I was able to extract from them.

Glacially Musical: Thank you for taking some time for us today.

Spore Lord: Thank you for having us!

GM: Tell me about why you chose to go instrumental rather than the standard vocal songs.

SL: We were having a difficult time finding a vocalist. After so long, we just went out and played in front of a  live audience to see if people would enjoy our sound. So far, the reactions are positive. So we kept doing it.

GM: What are your main influences?

SL: Lately, it has been a lot of the bands in the Atlanta area. Day Old Man, Gnomonaut, Zruda...Way too many to name. Bands that make me want to become a better musician.

GM: How high can you count in Roman Numerals?

SL: How many Wrestle-mania's are there? 30ish? XXX

GM: Do you think of your songs as stories?

SL: Not at the moment. We would just catch a good groove and hope to keep grooving from there. A good bit of songs had vocals in mind as we were doing a lot of writing during the hunt for a singer.

GM: Where does the inspiration come from?

SL: Cat memes. Bong hits. Pizza.

GM: On a scale of 1 to 10, where Karma To Burn is number 1 and Steve Vai is number 10, what is Spore Lord and why?

SL: That is the most insane scale of 1 to 10 that I have ever heard. 

We would probably be around a 4 or 5. That is where Snoop Dogg is, right? 

I feel we would have a lot in common with Snoop Dogg. 

GM: What are the five most important albums ever recorded?

SL: Right now? They are forever changing..

    Deep Purple - Machine Head
    Van Halen - Van Halen
    Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica
    The Sword - Age of Winters
    Pink Floyd - Animals

GM: Where did the name Spore Lord come from?

SL: It is based off of the "Stoned Ape" theory, by Terence McKenna. 

Spores can survive in a vacuum. So, what if psychedelic spores hitch hiked through space and landed on Earth million
