SPIDER CREW Interview with frontman Sean, by Eric

You went to Europe on a vacation, and ended up staying out there and getting a record deal. How did this happen?

AIGHT WELL, THIS HAPPENED BY ME BEING GOOD FRIENDS WITH AN AUSTRIN TATTOO ARTIST NAMED SIRI FROM TRIBE VIBES TATTOO IN VIENNA & ALSO THE BULLA MY BROTHER WHO OWN A TATTOO SUPPLY IN VIENNA.. BULLA KNEW THESE GUYS IN A BAND CALLED 'ONLY ATTITUDE COUNTS' FROM VIENNA & ALL OF THEIR CREW.. I STARTED HANGIN W/O.A.C. & WENT ON A TOUR W/O.A.C.& THE CRO-MAGS AS A ROADIE FOR THE VIENNA GUYS ALSO DOING SOME VOCALS.. TALKS WERE COMIN & GOIN ON THE TOUR BUS ABOUT STARTING A PROJECT & SPIDERCREW WAS BORN.. WE RECORDED A 6 SONG MINI-CD & RECORD LABELS STARTED GIVING US OFFERS.. SO WE WENT WITH ISCREAM RECORDS..

Spider Crew has been doing really well in Europe, what are your US plans for the band?

WELL, I HAVE BEEN APPROACHED A FEW TIMES ABOUT A SERIOUS TOUR HERE & WE ARE 100% FOR IT!! BUT THERE IS THE PROBLEM W/THE $$ FOR FLYING & ALL THAT.. THE MONEY SYSTEM IS ALOTT DIFFERENT IN EUROPE THAN HERE... KIDS MAKE IN A MONTH WHAT SOME OF US MAKE IN A WEEK HERE.. IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT..

You chose to become celebet. Any reason why? Is it a challenging lifestyle to maintain?

I BECAME CELEBATE A FEW YEARS BACK & I STAYED CELEBATE FOR OVER A YEAR.. IT WAS JUST SOMETHING I DECIDED TO DO THEN.. ALL THAT HAS CHANGED NOW... IT IS NOT REALLY DIFFICULT IF THAT'S WHAT YA WANNA DO.. MYSELF I'VE BEEN VEGETARIAN FOR 7 YEARS NOW.. THAT IS ALSO A BIG COMMITMENT, BUT AN EASY ONE AT THAT...
