!!! Shake Up Indie Scene

!!! vocalist Nic Offer spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about the band’s desire for change in a somewhat pretentious and boring indie rock scene. “When we started in the American indie rock community, it was almost a reaction to the late ’80s how slam dancing turned into this really macho activity that took over the whole room,” he admitted. “People took this stance – everybody had to stand totally still, and it was kind of a logical thing to do at the time, but eventually it turned into a rule. Then when we were playing music that was conducive to that, we had to open people up to the idea. We were playing punk shows in basements to people who had never danced like that, so we had to shake ’em up to get them going!” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
