As Zandari Festa 2018 gets into full swing, we at Rock N Seoul wanted to give readers the opportunity to learn more about the artists who’ll be bringing Hongdae to its knees for one of the city’s most unforgettable annual music events.
We here at Rock N Seoul have a special place in our hearts for multinational band …Whatever That Means. Personally, they honored me with my first interview for RnS, so it’s great to see what they’re still going strong since then. Their music is true post-punk, music that stays true to the mid-’80s/early-’90s brand of melodic thrash.
In the midst of their preparations for their appearance at Zandari Festa, bassist Trash took time out to answer some questions for us.
What is the most exciting part of Zandari Festa?
All of the free beer that is given to musicians! This festival is famous for the massive amount of beer it brings in each year to give to all of the performing acts and music industry delegates.
What makes your music unique?
What did you want to be when growing up?
Anything except for what my parents wanted me to be.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Travel outside of Korea much earlier in life to see more things and become more experienced.
What is the most important thing you want people attending Zandari Festa to know about you and your music?
There is a lot of great punk music in Korea that you should listen to. You can start this weekend with …Whatever That Means!
If you could be a super hero, what would be your name and your power?
I’d be Trash the hero who can destroy all garbage. The world needs more eco-friendly type superheroes.
…Whatever That Means play at Club FF on Saturday, October 6 at 8:10 p.m.
