The Faust Questionnaire: Brain Tumors

posted by MP Johnson

Have you heard of the Proust Questionnaire? This is the same thing, but a little more evil. Who cares about favorite colors anyway? Every Wednesday, Switchblade Comb will feature bands, authors, filmmakers and artists providing answers to much better questions. This week features Drew, the singer of Brain Tumors.

If you made a deal with the devil, what would you get out of it?

I would like to have the ability to play guitar and sing at the same time with as much talent as Dave Mustaine from Megadeth.

What would the devil get out of it?

I’d imagine we could get a regularly occurring gig at a local barbeque restaurant so he could probably get into shows for free and have access to burnt-out groupies in acid washed pants. Likely the devil would also curse me with the same rampant xenophobia and homophobia that Dave Mustaine has. I dunno if he’d give me hair or not.

What does your hell look like?

That stupid fucking black and white guitar that Zakk Wylde plays.

What is your favorite sin? Why?

Gluttony. Everything, all the time, forever.

What historical or contemporary figure would you choose to fight for your honor against the devil? Why?

Like when the Karate Kid had to fight Steve Vai for his soul? I dunno, me and Pat (guitar) were talking the other day about how we wanna beat the shit out of Joe Satriani because all of his songs sound like the soundtrack to Powerpoint Presentations at business meetings.

If you haven’t heard Brain Tumors yet, you really should change that. They’re one of the best things happening in hardcore right now. They’ve just released an extremely limited LP and their 7″ has been out for awhile. Find them. Buy them. Support local hardcore.
