Interviews: The Binz

Contributed by shogun. Posted by kira (g+) on Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image Without pretension and without much exception, The Binz is one of Vancouver's most exciting and refreshing bands to emerge from a growing scene with their raw, back-to-the-basics style of punk rock and roll.

"Yeah, I don't think there's anything superfluous with our music," bassist Rob Mangelzdorf says. "It's not too self-indulgent, I don't think. When we play live, we just try to play fast and loud and not take ourselves too seriously - and the crowd likes it. We owe it to them to play as hard and fast and the best we can."

On a sunny afternoon over several lukewarm Budweisers, Mangelzdorf and lead singer and guitarist Gary Robertz sat down with Punknews interviewer Gen Handley to chat about Vancouver's increasingly notable music community, their excellent new album, How to Freak Out Responsibly About the Rise of the Robots, and how public urination played a pivotal role in naming the band.
