Teenage Bottlerocket was interviewed and mentioned how it was a different Hanson Brothers that influenced them! 😉
Bands like the Ramones were pretty influential to you guys starting out. Are there any bands that have inspired you that might surprise people?
As far as surprise goes I think just a lot of bands that people haven’t heard of like the Varsity Weirdos from Moncton, New Brunswick, The Hanson Brothers from Victoria, British Colombia. Not the “MMMBop” Hanson, the blonde haired guys, but the NoMeansNo side project – stuff like that. Also I think we pull a lot of influences from pop music in general like The Cure, New Order and Joy Division, things like that.
