Soylent Green: What's the story behind the track Dangerous?
Buffalo Stack: It's about a dangerous women. One whose selfish, material-driven, and flirtatious. One who will lift you high and leave you dry. She's terrible for you, but you need her anyway. A archetype of some women I knew before I met the right one, my wife Tania.
Soylent Green: S'mores or Rice Crispy Treats?
Buffalo Stack: Rice Crispy treats- Gluten free if Tania makes them.
Soylent Green: What other bands are you guys listening to on the road?
Buffalo Stack: Classics, Muddy Waters, BB King, The stones, Lowell George, Grant Green, The Meters, Bonnie Rait. New stuff we dig is Dawes, Jack White, Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Soylent Green: Are you guys religious? If so, what religion?
Buffalo Stack: Not religious per se, but spiritual. We like eastern philosophy, Buddhism, yoga, meditation. I like to read Kabbalah as well. But no real organized religion, we like to be independent of that.
Soylent Green: What's the story behind the "Indian Themed" album art?
Buffalo Stack: Tania painted the cover. It's a nod to deep American traditions in a way. Reminds me of some of the art in New Orleans. Also it's a take on a Buffalo skull, and our name is Buffalo Stack. The colors are a bit psychedelic, which kind of lift the earthiness up a bit to a more ethereal place. Some of the sounds on the album reflect that concept.
Soylent Green: Are you going to be playing in New England any time soon?
Buffalo Stack: Yes, we have a show coming up at Atwoods in Cambridge, MA on September 16th. We hear great things about this club. Can't Wait!
