A Ripple Conversation with George Trevino of Las Cruces
Just about the heaviest doom we've ever heard! And damn proud to bring them into the Ripple Family! Here's a quick chat with George Trevino of San Antonio Doom-masters, Las Cruces
When I was a kid, growing up in a house with Cat Stevens, Neil Diamond, and Simon and Garfunkel, the first time I ever heard Kiss's "Detroit Rock City," it was a moment of musical epiphany. It was just so vicious, aggressive and mean. It changed the way I listened to music. I've had a few minor epiphany's since then, when you come across a band that just brings something new and revolutionary to your ears.
What have been your musical epiphany moments?
AC/DC on the late night tv live in 1978.
What makes a great song?
What makes a great song are the guitar riffs.
Tell us about the first song you ever wrote?
Song called Sans Sentiment in '82
What piece of your music are particularly proud of?
The song In My Sadness
Who today, writes great songs? Who just kicks your ass? Why?
Windhand, Mothership etc.just great riffage from these bands
Vinyl, CD, or digital? What's your format of choice?
digital now but vinyl is awesome
Whiskey or beer? And defend your choice
Beer cause it's cheaper lol
We, at the Ripple Effect, are constantly looking for new music. What's your home town, and when we get there, what's the best record store to lose ourselves in?
San Antonio TX Hogwild records
What's next for the band?
European tour we hope
Any final comments or thoughts you'd like to share with our readers, the waveriders?
Continue to wave that metal flag proudly. cheers and doom on
