Last year we did an interview with RealSoundsOK
Minus Cube Q&A
Michael Martin (vocals), Glyn Rolmanis (drums) and Joe Weinstock (guitars).
Where are you from?
We are actually spread across the planet! Michael is from Easton, Pennsylvania in the USA.
Glyn lives by the beach in Bournemouth, UK, and Joe lives in Salisbury, UK.
Name of band:
How would you describe yourselves?
Joe – Thoughtful lyrics and intelligent rock music, with plenty of riffs and emotion.
Michael – Awesome! haha!
Glyn – A mixture of old and new rock. There’s no doubt Alice in Chains influences take a front row seat, but we’re happy to push a boundary or two when a good idea strikes.
Who are your main influences musically?
Glyn – Personally, Rage Against The Machine, Alter Bridge and anyone else who can crank out a good riff.
Michael – Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots… All kinds of Music though!!
Joe – Alice in Chains, A Perfect Circle, Van Halen, Hurt, Soundgarden & the great 90’s rock bands.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
Michael – Creation of great and timeless songs!
Glyn – Fun, fun and more fun.
Joe – To be able to write great and honest music that can hopefully resonate with people in some way. I like emotion in songs, and try to incorporate that in some way in everything we do.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Glyn – Getting a song played on the radio.
Joe – This point right now in my music career is the best I’ve known. Radio play, some great interaction with those who like our music, and writing our best songs with the best musicians and people I’ve worked with.
Michael – The Radio! First time ever.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Michael – None!
Glyn – Playing gigs in venues to basically zero people. But who hasn’t done that? 😉
Joe – Sound limiters tripping all the amps at a gig! Glyn’s drums sounded good on their own though 🙂
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Glyn – ‘Shallow’. Because it rocks. It rocks hard 🙂
Michael – ‘Into The Air’ or ‘Somnambulist’.. they’re both great songs with a lot of meaning
Joe – It’s a tough one, because some of our songs have a varied style to them. ‘Into The Air’ is the one song we’ve written that I’m most proud of. It has a very special meaning lyrically and musically, I’m very proud of how it sounds. The suggestions Mike and Glyn made above would be my recommendations also, to get the best idea of what we’re all about!
