…we’re only a week away from Dayton Music Fest 2010 and we’ve got a couple more doses of Q&A for you today. Here’s what Jasper the Colossal and Wake Up Mordecai had to say…
Jasper the Colossal
BAND NAME: Jasper the Colossal
HOME BASE (city): Dayton
FORMED (year): 2007 (2008 with current line up)
STYLE OF MUSIC: 80’s inspired Punk Rock/Indie/Post Punk/Whathaveya
MEMBERS (names and instruments played): Paige Beller- Vocals, Moriah Yux-
Guitar, Nicki Brooks- Bass, Sarah Kouse- Drums
SHARED INTERESTS OF BAND MEMBERS: Going to shows, finding new music, acting like
12 year old boys
DISCOGRAPHY (release title and year): “Jasper the Colossal-Live at Canal Street”
2007 (out of print), “Prehistoric” E.P. 2009
SONG THAT BEST REPRESENTS YOUR BAND (and why): The Back Of The Crowd
(unrecorded, but videos on youtube) This song best represents us because it
crosses genres within one song.
NUMBER OF DMF APPEARANCES (and years): 2008, 2009, and soon to be 2010
LATEST NEWS (what’s up?): Writing, writing, and more writing. We are shopping of
studio options to record at least 12 new songs. We also have purchased a screen
printer and button machine for the band so that we can be a self contained unit.
PLANS FOR 2011: With any luck we will release a new full length album, get a
van, and tour.

Discography: North to the Nth Degree (2008), Too Young for the Disco (2009)

Representative Song: Probably “Disco = Crack”. Even though it may not be
representative, it’s what I wish all our songs sounded like – moody and
Number of DMF appearances: This is our first!
Latest News: Nothing really, still getting used to going from a two-piece
to now a four-piece band. It’s exciting and scary at the same time.
Plans for 2011: Hopefully a new album (but no promises).
