Two Minutes with Greenfog

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Ahead of opening for MONO at The Kings Arms on December 10, we spend a couple of minutes with Greenfog and chew the fat…

Describe your music in five words or less.
Forest rock, fuzzy shoegazey doom.

What’s going on in the world of Greenfog?
We’re all playing a lot in other bands at the moment (NIISA, Her Desher, The Naenae Express, Sea Views, Teracotta Cat, SonofSun, Rewind Fields, 3 Little Pubes, CHARLIE, Couchmaster) however we’re planning on releasing another Greenfog album soon filled with weird demos from recordings of our practices over the last couple years, something a little different. Then we might go back to Bruce Farm and record some new stuff. Who knows.

What motivates you to make music?
It’s hard to pinpoint this exactly. It’s what we do and will probably always do; making music we want to hear, with and for people we love.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
High (420): Probably opening for Earth, they are a huge inspiration for us and such lovely people.
Low: A couple of weeks ago watching Caroles, our tour bros/soul mates play their last show ever. Real sad.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
The new Fuzz album (!), Durutti Column, Duster, Shellac, Slowdive, Sunn O))), A Place to Bury Strangers, Swans, Broken Water, My Bloody Valentine, Conan, Pallbearer, Amen Ra, Soma, Thelonius Monk, Erik Satie, Neil Diamond’s ‘Girl, You’ll Be A Woman’, Kraus, and all the other seriously great shit happening in AKL central at the moment.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first? And why?
Scott and Elliot would feed me to the crabs.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Dry season.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring NZ artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
I.E. Crazy
Trust Punks
X-Ray Fiends
David Adison
The Mint Chicks
Seth Frightening
God Bows to Math
Dear Times Waste
Shacklock Meth Party
Reuben Winter (drone set)
Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing
The venue would have to be some amazing field/campsite/chronophonium-type place outside of Auckland with Mark from the Kings Arms on sound for the whole night and all the staff from The Kings Arms, Whammy Bar/Wine Cellar and Golden Dawn smashed together on the bar.

Greenfog support MONO at The Kings Arms in Auckland on Thursday, December 10. Tickets are on sale now through
