A couple of weeks back I discovered an act going by the name of Meterhead. The only thing I could find out about them was that they are based in Los Angeles so, I decided to find out a bit more about them but after I sent the following questions over I'm still no wiser. All I do know is that they make great music.
So who are the members of Meterhead?
We are based out of Los Angeles, but 1 of us lives in north cal... We prefer to remain nameless.
How long have you been Djing?
Since the early 90's.
Can you name a record that first sparked your interest in dance music?
Anthing from Rick Astley and early Huey Lewis and the News.
Do you have any residencies or events you organise or play regularly as Meterhead or individually?
No...nobody wants to hire us.
You've used quite a few illustrations of Motorhead's Lemmy on your EP covers, what's the story there?
We're hoping Lemmy will sue us.
How/when did you first begin making music?
As soon as we saw back to the future and heard "The Power Of Love" by Huey Lewis And The News.
Do you prefer to remix other artists tracks or produce original material?
A little of both, remixes are easy to get out there but expect much more originals in the near future.
Who would you most like to work with on a track and why?
The Melvins because they rule and will make us sound good.
Where do you see yourselves in 10 years time?
On an island with ya mamma.
What was your highlight of 2008?
Doing this interview.
What are your plans for 2009?
To come to the UK and sleep on your couch...can we?
