Bravewords.com correspondent Deb Rao recently spoke with RHINO BUCKET / KIX guitarist Brian Forsythe. The interview appears below
Q: Brian, Rhino Bucket have placed a track in the upcoming Darren Aronofsky feature, The Wrestler. The movie stars Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, both nominated for a Golden Globe, as well as Bruce Springsteen for Best Original Song, ‘The Wrestler’. How did this come into fruition?
Forsythe: “That’s news to me, I didn’t even know about this. Awesome!”
Q: Rhino Bucket is currently putting the finishing touches on your upcoming release, Taking The Fifth on Acetate Records. Tell us about the writing process for this album. Over how long a time period did it take to record the album?
Forsythe: “Taking The Fifth is just the working title. We’re still trying to come up with something better. We all contribute. Each individual song is someone’s initial idea, then we all put our own spin on it and it turns into a Rhino Bucket song. We wrote most of the songs during the fall of 2007 in a Winnebago driving around the country. This record took a lot longer to record than we had planned. One of the reasons is because we were still running off on the weekends to play gigs all around the country and then coming home to record during the week. The mixing is a whole other can of worms.”
Q: In your opinion, how does this compare to previous Rhino Bucket releases?
Forsythe: “It’s the best one yet!”
Q: What does the title, Taking The Fifth denote to you?
Forsythe: “That was George’s idea and we have since decided to change it to something else.”
