This past week I had the opportunity to interview, in a brief exchange of email and text messages, the Michigan based rock and roll band - Mac Saturn. Below is a summary of our discussion re-organized for better understanding and flow of conversation.

Can you tell me a little bit about the band and its background?

“Mac Saturn is a leviticously duteronomous soul-powered rock and roll band that was born from a gastric mass in the outer reaches of a forgotten renaissance. Dripping with ooze and wild mercury, ringing out a single lonely whistle like the ghost train riding through the dawn of time and space. Writing songs for the postman delivered by railcar and white lightning”.

What is each band members role in the group? Do you have any fun facts you’d like to share about Mac Saturn?

“Riding shotgun is Brett Dooge on lead six-string, strumming with his front teeth and surfing on the waves of the rhythm section. In the back seat is Jive Chivalski on bass holding the curtains, and Carson Macc on drums scrubbing the windows of the courthouse of time. In the driver's seat is Nick Barone. Spewing Blues that could make Fitzgerald forget the alphabet and turn Medusa to stone. Roots deeper than a countryside diner, and tempos rising faster than cigarette smoke at a propane convention. Four vagabonds from Saturn kicked around from planet to planet. Chewed up and spit out by the Sirens of Venus and the Arbiters of Neptune”.

Do you guys have any upcoming projects or anything else you would like to share?
