New interview with Bang Camaro, Count Zero, Freezepop

Yep, we corraled members of these three bands together for a lively talk that you can read here: http://www.rockband.com/blog/entry/282423

All three bands of course have DLC available this week. While all three bands have a Harmonix connection, they're also local faves who regularly pack the Boston clubs. And as you'll see from the interview, they're pretty witty folks as well.

    I have that man's signature! Long live Kasson Crooker and his spaceage synth noise.

    People tend to blur the game with reality. One guy on tour was telling me about his band, and I realized he was telling me about Rock Band. I told him I sang in Death of the Cool, played guitar in Anarchy Club and bass in Count Zero and he said, “Oh, you must play on expert then.
    That made me laugh!

    I can't wait for future Harmonix songs for DLC. I hope there's more than this pack planned for all the beloved HMX bands. *crosses fingers*

    Throw Symbion Project's "Synthesized" from Amplitude in the pipeline to compliment Super Sprode. The drums in that song would be epic and really fun in Rock Band, let alone the groovy bass and psychedelic vocals. You'd just have to get a little creative with creating the guitar track - a la Super Sprode. :D

    My weekly anticipation of new DLC has now been shattered. Unfortunately, I just downloaded this week's music only to find that I already had these songs from the free XBOX Magazine disc. A little note in the description to this effect would have saved me 240 MS Points but I should have looked closer instead going on blind faith. It is getting harder and harder to tell which songs are 'new' with all the DLC content (which good for you). I guess we are going to get anything new and exciting until Sony fixes their store it seems?

    Is it really too hard to remember which songs you have?

    Woo! Bring on the HMX love! I'm all for more in-house DLC, though I can see how it'd piss off others. Seriously, though - I wanna sing "Push Push Lady Lightning."

    They've been doing these for a while. They've been doing artist article stuff for each DLC release since the "Calling Dr. Love", "We Care A Lot", "Roam" releases. Good stuff.

    Just because your a genius and don't make mistakes doesn't require you to be rude.

    LOL, YES! I thought it was something dirty. It just had that kind of ring to it. Something that would involve CARTMAN's Mom or something. Speaking of something dirty, I'd like some more VAGIANT too please ;)

    Freezepop REALLY helps a Rock Band guitar player practice those Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs too btw!

    Practice w/ FREEZEPOP makes perfect!

    I love the song "Sprode", but I'm just not sure how I feel about being referred to as being "super Crunchy"?!?!

    at the bottom of the article... it says.

    “I Want My, I Want My DLC!”


    does anyone else get 'Dire Straits' in their head while reading that?

    hummmmm......

    my group really only has fun performing songs everyones familiar with. no one gets excited to start playing some unknown uncatchy songs... even after a few drinks.

    whats the point of the set list forums if they never even get considered.. just close it down.

    They've actually been doing it since Day 1, it's just that there's no way to see the older entries that I know of.

    Push Push would be the greatest, better than Pleasure Pleasure in my opinon
  • johnmusic88johnmusic88 Unsigned

    I agree, that
    Push Push is IMO the better one

    Please no more Bang Camaro, please. Freezepop I can handle, but no more Bang Camaro. It's like hearing little kids trying to imitate hair metal they've heard on the radio. I've heard less cheesy lyrics from songs at the end of a cliche 1980's movie that raps about exactly what happend in the movie (with the exception of the rap at the end of Monster Squad, nothing is -that- cheesy.)

    You realise that you just doomed us all, yes?

    Rock Band 2 will now carry Hammer's "Addams Family Rap".

    Or a Bang Camaro cover of it.

    Dont listen to Feral. Ever.

    More Camaro plz. BC is the best thing since Downey Wrinkle Releaser (Its an Iron in a spray bottle, I dont have to iron shirts anymore. Just hang it, spray it, flatten the wrinkles out, and it even makes it smell good for the ladies!)

    Yes. Listening to Feral is bad for your health.

    I went as far as going online and buying Bang Camaro's album after these games. It is one of my favorites now. The whole cheesy crowd singing thing is awesome in my eyes. It shows people how to have fun with music. Some artists take themselves too seriously.
