Hearts Bleed Radio: Ok, so I'm listening to "Mad Weird", your debut album. It's a pretty big block of work, 16 tracks... How do you go about composing?
Giga Herbs: We lobotomize our egos and pack them into a spaceship. We then tear a hole in the space-time continuum and transverse through different dimensional membranes until some sort of cohesive structure is attained. Basically, we usually jam the tunes out.
HBR: Who would you say are your main influences? I hear kinda a straight up 90's indie side, but also, like a groovier Hall and Oates thing.
GH: Daniel Johnston, The Band, Unicorns, and the Wu-Tang Clan. More recently, the Black and Flaming Lips --respectively.
The band, in 16-bit mode.
HBR: I think "Froggin'" is my favorite track on the album. What's the song about?
GH: It's about comin' up and chillin' on that lily pad, y'know what I'm sayin'?
HBR: Oh, that's what I thought... but you never know if there's a hidden meaning. Hey, what is a Giga Herb anyhow?
GH: Well sometimes a predator done come along and park his car on your lawn.
HBR: And that's a Giga Herb?
GH: No, a Giga Herb is a dud.
HBR: A dud? Like, a bomb that doesn't explode?
GH: Exactly. A grand dud.
