The MighTy Fine

Blunt - - Up Front -

Where are you from?

San Luis Obispo, Cal­i­for­nia.

Who is in your band?

Brook Thomp­son (vo­cals, gui­tar); Casey Wieber (gui­tar, vo­cals); Mikey Castillo

(bass, vo­cals); Chris Scott (drums).

Who are some of your in­flu­ences?

Against Me!, The Bronx, Mil­len­colin, Foo Fighters, and The Lawrence Arms.

Where can we nor­mally find

you play­ing?

The West Coast of the USA, but I think it’s time to make it out to Aus­tralia. I stud­ied abroad in Bris­bane about seven years ago and loved it. You guys know

how to drink.

Tell us about your best show.

We played with Against Me! a few years back in our home­town and it was just wild. We also got to play LA’s The Roxy for the first time last year with A Wil­helm Scream and The Flatliners. It

was a pretty sur­real ex­pe­ri­ence.

Tell us about your worst show.

Most of our early shows were pretty rough. There was one show in par­tic­u­lar where I couldn’t stop break­ing strings. I had chugged about a bot­tle of wine right

be­fore the set to set­tle my nerves and in­stead, I played loud and noisy and out

of tune. Wine was a bad choice.

Tell us your three favourite bands.

De­scen­dents, Thrice, and Mil­len­colin.

Tell us about your lat­est re­lease.

We re­leased Broth­ers And Smug­glers on March 4 via Cre­ator-De­struc­tor Records and we recorded it in Los Angeles with our good friend Kyle Black (Come­back Kid, Strung Out, New Found Glory). This is eas­ily my most favourite re­lease that I’ve been a part of. I think fans of So-Cal punk rock with gritty vo­cals and big hooks

will en­joy the al­bum.

Slayer or Me­tal­lica?

Me­tal­lica (sans St. Anger).
