Interviews: BADGUYSWIN


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Grunge band, BADGUYSWIN, from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

The band name is satirical. It's meant to question the idea that bad guys do win, which isn't what we want. We threw around a few ideas, but there's a song by Matthew Good that we enjoy and the name stuck with us.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We wanted to get back to playing the music that inspired us to become musicians in the first place. We all listened to grunge rock when we were younger, and it led us into different genres. But the genre we play was the starting point for our entire lives.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

We all went to high school together and played in different bands while growing up before forming Slagduster, our progressive technical metal band. Slagduster began in 2010 and it's a project that we are still working on. 

4. Each band member favorite band?

Shane - Soundgarden, Big wreck Alex - Tool, Protest the Hero. Zak - The Melvins, Radiohead.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Our inspiration comes from our love of music in general. We find inspiration everywhere, from our personal experiences to the music we grew up with and the music we listen to now. No singular thing inspires out music, we are constantly changing.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was last summer at our drummer's (Zak) dads birthday party. We played for family and friends outdoors.

7. Where would you like to act?

We have never really aspired to play stadiums. We prefer a small setting, so the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver would be ideal for us. We have seen a lot of amazing bands perform there, and it would be an honor to continue their rock and metal legacy.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

We would love to play with Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age. Any of our musical inspirations that are still active today would be an honor to play with.

9. Whom not?

We wouldn't like to play with any band that wouldn't have a receptive audience towards us. Even if a band might not be our musical taste, we wouldn't want to work with a band that isn't as passionate as we are. Cross promotion is never a bad thing.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Stage fright was a thing of our past but we have been performing for so long, that we have overcome it. The greatest tip is to just enjoy what you are doing. Don't doubt yourself and be confident that you are performing live because you have people who want to hear you. If you can find a mental space where you are enjoying yourself as much on stage as you do in your jam space and among friends, you're on the way to beating stage fright.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Nirvana, Kyuss and Alice In Chains.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

While I was in Slagduster, several fans had asked me for a piece of my hair. They requested a dreadlock. I've grown out my dreadlocks for about 15 years so it was strange that people just wanted me to chop off a piece.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Our biggest fans are our friends and family, so we think pretty highly of them. Now we are beginning to gain steam and gain fans that we don't personally know, and we are very appreciative that people are enjoying what we are doing. Without them, we are nothing so we can't express our excitement and appreciation towards those that are following and sharing our music.

14. What do you think of our site?

I love that your website is paying attention to the smaller bands and working towards spreading different genres of music to people who might otherwise not have been exposed to it. Music is such a personal thing and Breathing The Core really reaches out to people from all walks of life, and gives underground music a chance to express itself and be heard.

15. Something add?

Our new album 'Cowards' is out now. If you're a fan of 90s alternative or grunge rock and roll, give us a listen. You can find us on every streaming platform! Thanks for having us! Cheers!
