THE DIFFERENCE MACHINE
Atlanta's hip hop and rock band brings the psychadelic wave back like you've never heard it before. Accompanied by hard hitting and agressive lyrics that make the hairs all over your body stand up!
How did the band form and how would you compare yourselves to an actual "Difference Machine?"
The band formed when the earth did. We've been around for that long. We used to chill in Atlantis and had to relocate when the great flood hit. We compare to the difference engine slightly but it doesn't have a soul. Everything else is pretty spot on.
What does every band member bring to the creative process of a body of work?
We all have our strengths and weaknesses and we rely on each other to cover the others. As far as each part we play it interchanges based on the situation. Everyone speaks up and disagrees about direction and from that great things follow. It's a real organic process so it can't really be detailed. They are much more than their instruments.
What movies, music, books, doctrine, etc., inspires concepts within the band?
The Doors, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, J Dilla, Jel, Shadow, the Matrix, Frank, Blue Velvet, True Detective, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Dennis Leary to name a few. oh yeah, and steakhouses of all sorts.
What has been one of the craziest moments that you've experienced while being a band?
We were outside at a festival in Asheville and a girl queefed on command...ridiculous and kinda gross!
How would you define your version of success?
When the whole world finally realized that death is not the end, and that we are all The Difference Machine.
What message does The Difference Machine have for their fans, the world, etc.?
Free your mind and your ass will follow, or at least your mind will follow. That's good enough for us.
