Interviews: Black Tarpoon


We have had the opportunity to interview the Hillibily Punk band Black Tarpoon from USA. 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 come out just like that?

My brother actually came up with it, it was a a design he came up with for a shirt. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

Honestly? The Goddamn Gallows. I opened up for them with my first band in 2009 and was blown away. We were gonna play something heavier but we ended leaning into the Roots sound more and more. The fact that we only had acoustic instruments probably had a push that way too.

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

We're a family band, Tashia the Don is my Wife, Oatmeal is her brother and Billy Mo is my Dad. And Chichi and Scooby were good friends of ours before hand.

4. Each band member favourite band? 

This is a tough one.

Chichi: Bad Religion

Tashia: the Beatles

Billy Mo: Govt Mule

Oatmeal: Black Eyed Vermillion

Scooby: Clutch

Jesse James: The Goddamn Gallows

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

We like to tell stories, part fiction part non-fiction. We like to tell a tale from a first person perspective a lot. Of just try to emanate a specific feeling with the lyrics.

6. Where was your last gig? 

Muddy Roots 2021 was our last performance we did and it was an absolutely amazing experience. We were supposed to play on Halloween but Billy Mo had a heart attack before the first band started playing. He's doing better though.

7. Where would you like to act? 

Broadway or like a community Theater in Sandusky Ohio so I can stay humble ya know?

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Tom Jones. Or Amigo the Devil. Or anyone else that does a good job with the song Delilah.

9. Whom not? 

The US Bombs or Ted Nugent

A shot of whiskey for the drinkers, or watch any number 80's movie montages for the sober folk.

A few people have called Oat at 3:00 am drunk as hell just wanting conversation. 

13. What do you think of your fans?

They're all pretty cute if you ask me. They have a good sense of humor for the most part too.

14. What do you think of our site? 

I think y'all have a good thing going here for a lot of different acts. Y'all help expose a lot of different bands from a variety of It's a good place to find something new.

15. Something to add?

We have a new album available digitally on most platforms called Probable Caws, and it will be pressed on vinyl in the spring, and it's the best thing we've ever done so go check it out, and if you're a music nerd, buy the record!
