VHS or Beta, bite-sized!
Angora Holly Polo interviewed VHS or Beta, and is giving you parts of the interview in teasing snippets leading up to their December 6th show at the Bluebird. All photos are by 28 Deep.
Since Mark Guidry is a drummer in a typically dancey band, I asked him if there’s a formula for making the girls dance:
“I don’t know if it’s necessarily just the rhythm section that makes people dance. There’s a little bit of funkiness in there, but that’s probably provided more by [bassist Mark Palgy] than myself.
I like to add and subtract things at the right times so the buildup happens, and then when all the instruments hit together, for, say, the chorus, that’s when people hit it, and they get it. So it’s playing around with adding and subtracting; that’s my method.”
Angora: “Like syncopation?”
Mark: “Not really.”
