Here's yet another interview in our ongoing Groezrock-related interview series. This is one is with Masked Intruder... if you ask me one of the best new bands around! If you haven't checked out their album, you're seriously missing out. Check them out live next weekend but keep a hand on your wallet... you just never know.
PRT: What do you think the "Groez" in "Groezrock" stands for?
RED:” Groez,” is Belgiumese for the English word, “Grows.” This is cause the festival is out in a field and stuff, and farmers grows stuff. So now to clarify, “Groez,” like basically translates to farmer then. Now when you combine it with the, “rock” part of “Groezrock”, it means farmer rock.
Green: Ya, Duh.
PRT: One beer at Groezrock costs less than 2$. Good or bad and why?
Green: If it’s a scotch ale, good. Carlsberg, bad.
Green: Because we like to actually get drunk when we drink beer.
Yellow: Oh, ya!
PRT: If Groezrock was the scenery for The Lord of the Rings, which character would you be and what would be your quest?
Blue: We are nerds, but not that much of nerds.
RED: Ya, how is your bug collection working out?
PRT: If people recognize you on the festival grounds, should they leave you alone or come up and give you a hug?
Green: Definitely hugs.
Blue: Especially pretty girls.
Green: We’ll hug dudes too but only fat ones with boobs… so we can pretend.
PRT: The Groezrock Head Honcho, Hans, is a whisky fan. What can you recommend him?
Green: This seems like a loaded question. We really like scotch and Irish Whiskey but since we’re from America we should probably recommend a bourbon. Jim Beam is a good one.
Blue: Toilet wine just tastes like home though.
PRT: Top 5 least favorite things at open air festivals?
- No outside alleyways to hang out with people who want to let you borrow their wallets and purses.
- It is harder do smell pretty girls perfumes.
- It can get really hot walking around in the sun with a ski mask on.
- It is hard to find somewhere to hide if the cops show up.
- One, Two, Three, Five, That is Five things, right?
PRT: Top 5 favorite things at open air festivals?
1) It isn’t prison!
2) No one hassles you when you, allegedly, smoke drugs.
3) Lots of pretty girls walking around.
4) It isn’t prison!
5) The party seems way bigger.
PRT: For the past couple of years, there's always been a big reunion show at Groezrock. Refused, Rocket from the Crypt, CIV... Which yet to reform band should we book?
Blue: Lillingtons would be the freshest of the most tight.
Geen: Or if like Offspring broke up and then reunited but only played songs off of their first three or four albums? That would be pretty cool.
RED: As Blue said before, that would be the freshest of the most tight.
PRT: If you would have to do a guest appearance with one of the bands of this year’s line-up, which band would it be and during which song?
RED: Dopamines! It wouldn’t matter what song, cause there will be beer flying everywhere for every song. I like beer.
PRT: There was a Tupac-hologram at Coachella last year. Who'd you like to hologramify during your Groezrock-show?
Blue: Kirsten Dunst, but a real person instead of a hologram thingy.
Green: E-Z MUTHAFUCKIN’ E… biotch. Actually, scratch that. Marilyn Monroe because she was the ultimate mega babe.
