Wyldlife VS Groovey.TV’s The Gauntlet! Interview Series


(Rules of The Gauntlet: The artist (Like in this case the badass Wyldlife.) is sent 75 questions from which they must choose  at least  12 to answer in whatever medium they choose: written, audio,or video. The questions range from standard to ridiculous.)


WyldlifeWhile we here at the mighty Groovey TV offices are often found cranking Wyldlife tunes we fear ever meeting this band due to the fact that the general attitude  of the two organizations will probably result in the hijacking of a beer truck and some sort of  nationally televised wheelie contest. On rooftops. With dragsters.  On fire.  If you are of the same mindset that rock and roll should be fun then check out these guys known as Wyldlife.  Here are Wyldlife’s vocalist Dave Feldman answers to Groovey.TV’s The Gauntlet! Interview Series.


1) Describe your sound.

We’re the type of band your parents warned you about. Fast and loud songs about sex, drugs and rock and roll. We’re not re-inventing the wheel here, just getting behind it and driving you totally loco, baby!

2) What are you working on right now?

Well we just released our 2nd LP, “The Time Has Come to Rock & Roll.” Our buddy Tuk from one of our favorite bands, Biters, produced it along with Dan Dixon. Frankly, I think it rips but I don’t wanna blow my own load too hard. So right now we’re working on the tail-end of setting up our tour and then we’re hitting the road in a few weeks across Canada and the US.

3) Peace or freedom? (You can’t have both.) Why?

Freedom, duh. Who wants peace? Our vision of paradise is a lot like the movie Mad Max… total fucking insanity, lawlessness, lots of leather, motorcycles. That shit is the bomb!

4) What was the last song you listened to before this interview?

“In Dead Sleep” by the Night Marchers.

5) Name one person cooler than Evel Knievel.

Dennis Rodman. 

6) Stella or Guinness?

High Life. It’s way easier to get fucked up versus a heavy-Guinness, and way less expensive too. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Guinness has it’s time and place but if you’re racing towards the end product (inebriation), High Life is our spot.

7) How often do you guys practice and why?

That’s one thing we kinda take seriously is that we have to practice at least once a week. We try and make our live shows as tight as possible, so we do a strenuous rehearsal to pack a metaphorical punch when we are on stage. I think our work ethic in terms of practicing comes through at our shows.

8) What is the most embarrassing band you listen to?

We are all pretty big fans of the Killers first 2 albums, but especially the 2nd one, “Sam’s Town.” Now that we’ve told you, we have to kill you.

9) Wheelie or endo?

Smoke endo while popping wheelies!

10) If you had a time machine, what would you do with it?

The first thing we’d do is travel back to year 0 and shove Jesus. That’d be pretty bragable. Then we may want to fast forward to the late 1970s, become buddies with The Dead Boys and Television and The Ramones and shit… I think our band probably fits better back than anyway so that’d be a solid career move for us. Of course, if that didn’t work out we could always hop back in to 1997 and write “MMM Bop.” SAN DIMAS HIGHSCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!

11) What bands would you like to go on tour with?

I think opening up for The Hives would be a dream come true. We will hopefully be hitting the road with The Biters soon enough if we can all get our heads out of our asses. Motorhead would be a fun tour to go on to and just rage with Lemmy. What about the Rolling Stones? Could we tour with them? Imagine jamming with those dudes, doing backstage lines with Keith Richards or something, and don’t tell me he’s off drugs because something is keeping that motherfucker’s heart ticking and it’s not fucking vegetable juice.

12) There is a good chance you will look back and be embarrassed by your current hairstyle. Discuss.

WRONG. Our haircuts are awesome and Dave works at a salon so we get them on the cheap whenever we want. Next question.

13) Why should people go to your shows?

Rock ‘n’ Roll used to be something fun! We wanna bring that back, we want you to move the fuck around. We want you to be excited, shocked, maybe even scared but never ever fucking bored. And if you’re bored at our shows, you’re fucking boring. Plus, people don’t always think we’re that approachable, but we are. We wanna have beers with you, talk shop and party ’til it’s time to pack up the van.

14) If you were facing unbeatable and fatal odds, what song would you most like to check out to?

I have often thought it would be cool if the four of us died in a fucking brutal, Tarantino-esque police shootout with Dylan’s “The Man In Me” playing as bullets reign through our beautiful torsos (in slow motion, of course).

15) What do you geek out to besides music?

Allow me to break this down by member.
Samm: Huge NY Mets fan, even though he doesn’t have a TV to watch them play. And he’s not too cool for TV, he’s just too broke for cable sports packages.
Russ: Has a rather large collection of antique weapons and knives, and they don’t collect dust in a cabinet neither.
Spencer: Total graphics/print nerd. Mastermind behind all Wyldlife art project.
Dave: I own nearly every Clint Eastwood movie. I’m pretty gay for him. I love you, Mr. Eastwood!

16) What would you like to say to your fans?

“Hey, thanks for coming out. I like your t-shirt, where’d you get it? Really? Oh wow. It’s nice, I didn’t know they were making stuff like that.”
