Anonymous said: How do you feel about the members of whirr calling all those people on Facebook retards then?

Been asked that a lot, not gonna answer it again, but my point with BNO is that it’s a very strange word to use in lyrics, especially in the music they make, and especially the way they use it. It’s just weird, I’m not saying it’s offensive / not offensive, it’s simply bizarre.

Anonymous said: Whose idea was it to etch "Slipknot 666" on the Mixed Signals vinyl?

I think we did that and then all completely forgot about it. It was either me, tom, or both of us.

It definitely was pressed a few years ago. That record is pretty cool but the EP before it is better. That is how pop punk with screaming is done. Very questionable lyrics though, I could never get over the fact that they say ‘retard’ in a song. Like…what?

They just said two bands they’re playing a show with. Not a big deal.

Saves The Day has more material I love. But I also love Turning Point and like most of their stuff too, they just don’t have 4 amazing LPs like STD (Including Ups and Downs)

Trick question. It makes no sense. Recently re-watched the directors cut, still makes no sense.

raekev said: What you said about "Songs About the Weather" is true but I think people can relate to those songs more. They should do what tigers jaw did with distress signal on charmer. Just do the most popular song of SATW and remaster it on an album or ep.

Tigers Jaw fully re-recorded distress signal, which came out after their last LP prior to Charmer. Wouldn’t make a lot of sense for Basement to do that since they’ve put out 2 LPs and an EP since that 7” came out. Also, they don’t want to, which is also a pretty good reason!

Sure. I don’t listen to them but I think it’s cooler than it is not cool. I need to listen to a whole record.

Anonymous said: Is the fact Basement has moved far away from the sound they had on "Songs About The Weather" have anything to do with them not wanting to repress it?

You would have to ask them but I assume they believe they’ve moved on in terms of songwriting ability to the point where they don’t want to bother keeping it in print because they don’t think it’s on par with everything else. I like it and it’s what made us sign them, but everything else after is way better.

53reynolds said: Hey I'm a huge fan of your record label as well as all the work Alex does with you guys. I currently go to school for film and was just wondering how Alex became apart of filming stuff for bands on the label. He's one of my biggest inspirations and I would love to some day do what he does~

I’m not sure how he got into filming stuff in general, bit he started going on tour with bands and with Basement and would film and make videos and eventually started making music videos. Tom and I thought it would be cool to see if he had any interest in moving over here and doing full time video / art direction type stuff for us, as it’s not usually a position you think about a record label having. We thought it would be something different to put in front if people. He was stoked and did it, and he has proven to be a major asset to us, if you couldn’t tell. Love that guy.

Anonymous said: Hey Jeff, would you guys ever put out a post-hardcore tpye release?

I honestly have no idea what people are referring to these days when they say post-hardcore. 15 year olds will tell you it’s Sleeping With Sirens, 20 year olds will tell you it’s Circa Survive, 25 year olds will tell you it’s Mewithoutyou and 30 year olds will tell you it’s Fugazi and Big Black.

So yeah, I dunno.

whoianisthisweek said: How did Bryan get his nicknames? (Beandip, Beanie Seagull, etc).

All of them are a play off of his real name Bean Dip. Beanie Seagull is an great one I made up, because Bean Dip’s attitude and swag factor remind of infamous Philly rapper, and Jay Z’s former partner in crime, Beanie Sigel.
