Mink Valley

What's the meaning behind the band's name?
Fred: Growing up I liked some bands starting with the letter M and V. Mink Valley just jumped out after 3 -4 weeks of clowdy giggling about other options. We like it. Where is this "Mink Valley"? Who is this "Mink Valley"?! Where on earth is this awesome loud music coming from - must be from that "Mink Valley" project!!! I'm gonna get me a taste of that awesome sound coming from that there "Mink Valley."

How the band started??
Tanya: On a porch in North Vancouver about 4 years ago.
F : T was involved in another project and Jeremy and I had a project in the works. We joined forces and now we're the best 3 piece we could ever have imagined.

What's your method at the time of writting a song??
F : "Always push record, always push record!"

Which is your music influences??
F : Ween, Les Savy Fav, Dinosaur Jr, Tenacious D, My Bloody Valentine, The Pixies, The Kinks.

What plans do you guys have for the future??
Tanya: We just finished our first full-length album and we are about to go back into the studio this week to start recording another one. A tour is also part of the plan.

Which has been the funniest prank you guys have been or took part while on tour or after a show??
Tanya: It’s not really a prank but it was funny: we played a burlesque show and our drum kit was inside a big cardboard cake. It was someone’s birthday and frosting got all over the stage so we almost fell on our asses during our set.
F : Tasty times.

If you guys were stranded in the middle of nowhere after a show or while on tour. The help is 65 miles away from where you guys are, ¿Who would you guys send to look for help? And if while the rest wait, there's no food and the only way to feed yourself is by eating each other, ¿Who would you eat first?
F : Tanya would probably have to be eaten first - sorry T, only because me and Jeremy suffer from an after rawkin hygiene problem.

Which country you guys would love to play?
Tanya: Germany
Fred: Japan

With which bands you guys would love to share stage??
Fred : Ween, Les Savy Fav, Dinosaur Jr, Tenacious D, My Bloody Valentine, The Pixies.
Tanya : They’re not bands but I’d love to perform on Yo Gabba Gabba or Sesame Street one day.

Are you guys OK, with the direction the band is going actually?
Fred : The forward part is awsome. The backward part is just a part of life.
Tanya : I’ve never been happier in a band scenario – Mink Valley is a happy place.
