Well basically the story like behind the former members of Flaw, I was in Flaw the whole time, I sang for Flaw the whole time. Ivan played drums for Flaw and helped write pretty much the first Flaw record. And Ben played bass for Flaw for awhile. But these guys ah, while I was in Flaw and I was touring with Flaw these guys had another project called Silent Q.
Sure. I mean yeah, we've already seen it across the country, I mean there's probably about 80 percent of the Flaw fans are already 5BM fans now. Your still gonna get a small percentage, maybe 20 percent of people that are just so pissed off that Flaw's broken up that they don't wanna come over to this side.
We're in a similar genre position as Flaw. I don't think we sound really, other than vocally, I think we don't really resemble Flaw's music a whole lot.
In terms of just writing styles, we're all products of our environment in the ways we learned our instruments and things like that. Does it sound... ya know, can you point your finger at certain parts and say well this is derived from that, maybe not. Each one of our influences ya know certainly colors the way I approach our instruments, the way he approaches his instrument, we all approach our instruments based on the way we learned them.
Actually I stole it. I was in a band with a guy about five years ago that he wanted to name the band Four Bolt Main. It's part of a car, basically most cars either have a two bolt or four bolt main. A four bolt main goes on higher torque higher RPM kinda cars, sports cars, muscle cars, stuff like that. I always thought it was a really cool name, we couldn't find a name for this band, we thought that'd be a really cool name, but there is five of us. So I thought Five Bolt Main, instead of four.
Louisville was one of the top five or six music cities in the country. Cause of that, the clubs developed, and a sorta network of websites, fan meetings, new clubs all to support unsigned local music, ya know, original stuff out of Louisville. We have pretty fertile ground for a band to come out of, it's easy to get a good solid push from your home town if your from a place like that, it seems bands like that go play places like Ozzfest and things like that.
