The OneUps: Exclusive Interview
You’ve been around now for 13 years since your inception, was there ever a time in the first few years before your first album (Volume 1) in 2005, that you thought you wouldn’t make it?
William Reyes: To be perfectly honest, we’ve never thought of making it at all. We merely perform and record for fun while trying to receive a very modest financial gain. We always saw this as not only a fun musical outlet, but a great way to work with other musicians with the possibility of meeting new people everywhere we go!
WR: We have toyed with the idea of touring many times. We’ve only done one tour, and it was alongside Danimal Cannon, brentalfloss and Random Encounter. If we were to do it again, we would either do it along the east coast or a smaller tour around the midwest. We would love to do a European tour.
WR: We are always working on a new album it seems. haha.
WR: Toe Jam and Earl games, if they make more..
WR The list of influences contains over 100 names, but a few are: Jamiroquai, Daft Punk, Parliament, Tom Jobim, James Brown, Hall and Oats, Player, Primus, Jerry Goldsmith, Bjork, Nine Inch Nails, Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, The Bee Gees, Kool and the Gang…
WR: In the future we hope to have been more places, met more people and have more recordings available to the public!
