POZ Presents: Mixtapes Interview

Posted by - 02:53 PM on 02/19/13
PropertyOfZack recently interviewed Ryan Rockwell of Mixtapes and confirmed that the band will be recording a new album this March. They also talked about a handful of bands within the scene. Read it all here.
POZ: More than guitar. Much more than you practice the guitar. Jason Tate would agree too.
Ryan: Does Jason Tate even know how to play guitar?

I feel like they didn't even tour on the last album.

To answer the question: Jason Tate severed a tendon in his hand when he was like 6 or something (don't remember), and can't bend fingers correctly to play guitar. And while he was taught how to play by his dad, he cannot actually play very well without some left hand acrobatics. /Third person.

(Oh, and that's definitely not me being referenced in the rest of that paragraph.)

Hilarious interview. Loved the bit about Tom Delonge buying 12 iPods.

Paramoreís new song? Last one.
Do I have to answer this?
POZ: You have to answer it, itís the last one. Most important question.
Ryan: I listened to it once and I thought it sounded like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
POZ: Do you like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs?
Ryan: No.
I laughed so hard at this.

This was a blast to do. Ryan is a friend and it was more like a silly conversation than an interview. Lots of great info and jokes in there

Ugh. I want to see Masked Intruder so badly but I despise Mixtapes. Oh well probably won't come near here anyways.
