Interview with . . . Filmspeed

Filmspeed has just about everything that you could want in a rock band. Their motto is “Unapologetic, loud, and soulful.” I think it’s the Detroit and LA combination that they have. You can’t be fake or subpar if you want to perform in Detroit. Don’t expect to get away with not having talent. Detroit fans will let you know if you pass. If they love you, they will love you for life. Or until your career crashes and burns and cannot be recovered.

So obviously Filmspeed has passed the test. They are a long way from the crash and burn stage. You can check out all of their websites and videos to see for yourself. In the meantime, get to know a little bit about Filmspeed in the following interview.

Where was your first show as a fan? as a band?

So let’s go one at a time. Craig’s first show as a fan was Garth Brooks at Joe Louis arena in 1996. Nick’s first concert was the Presidents of the United States of America. Oliver’s first concert was the Projekt Revolution tour with Linkin Park, Korn, Snoop Dogg, The Used and Less Than Jake. We played together as a band for the first time at a little place in Los Angeles called the Virgil almost 2 years ago.

Do you get back to Detroit very often?

About twice a year actually. Just about all of Nick and Craig’s family still live there.

What do you like about your hometowns?

Oliver is a born and raised OC boy so his stomping grounds are the campus of UCI. His parents have both been professors at the university. As far as Detroit MI is concerned, it always comes back to the people and energy of that town. You won’t find a more genuine, honest and passionate section of people.

What do you guys do when not making music?

Both Nick and Oliver are avid gamers. They’ll often meet up online for DOTA and other campaign type games.

Who would you like to work with in the future – producers, musicians, etc?

Rick Rubin, Butch Walker, Max Martin, Jeff Bhasker, Shellback, Feldy… you know, the little guys.

Where would you like to go on tour next?

Anywhere overseas is super appealing. To play a 5 night stand on a strip of pubs in Manchester sounds like a dream.

Do you have fans in unexpected places?

According to Spotify? Singapore. According to attendees at the Viper Room? Ireland. According to press coverage? Argentina and the Czech Republic.

What kind of beer do you like?

Ooo… now we’re talking religion and politics level. It all depends on the mood really. Craft brews over mass factory without a doubt. Once you get to that level though, it’s all about the food you’re eating it with or even the weather can play a factor.

What do you want people to know about Filmspeed?

We want them to know what a Rocknroll show looks like. So they ought to get themselves out TO one. Music is not a half-hearted affair for us, and we like to infect as many folks as we can.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
