Scott from Snapcase, a str8 edge band from New York on Victory Records, tore himself away from school and the band long enough to answer the following questions Vaughn Currier asked him.
D.U.: How’s the work on the new album coming?
Scott: The new album is coming along great! It’s titled Lookinglasself and I’m really psyched on the recording and layout. Check it out.
What are some messages you try to convey with the new album’s songs?
Our new songs, like our 7”, convey self-determination and all those noble qualities like that.
Have you ever done any shows with any death metal bands?
We’ve played shows with Baphomet, a local Buffalo band now called Banished, and Cannibal Corpse to a great response. Also, Vio-Lence, Defiance, D.R.I., Pro-Pain is about all of them. Those shows were awesome.
Is there one band in the scene you’d really like to do a show with?
We really don’t have any “preferred” bands. Just really awesome, non-ego bands would rock out.
Is there one that you would rather not do a show with?
There’s Jodeci, Boyz II Men, all that top 40 R&B wouldn’t float our boat that much.
How far off do you think the US of A is from having a female president?
As much as I hate to say it, I think America is very far off from having a black or female or anything other than a white male as president. As much as you or I would want the best president regardless, there is still racism and sexism in the U.S., and it’ll probably stick around.
Has the hardcore scene grown or diminished in the past 10 years?
In Buffalo, the scene has maxed out in ‘88-‘89 years and then dropped pretty low. Then since the last few years, the scene has totally improved and Buffalo rocks out once more.
Does anyone in Snapcase go to raves?
Our roadie corners the market in raves and tries to drag us to them whenever. It’s fun to look at people who take them serious. It’s just a big party.
Anyone in the band ever been hit by a car?
I got hit off my Big Wheel when I was three, but nothing serious. Now I think we just do the hitting in our van.
In closing, do you have any final remarks?
Thanks for the interview. Good luck with the ‘zine. Check out our album, and hope you saw us in D.C. Later. ■
