MAKE were recently interviewed by Decibel Magazine.
When the band started, was the original idea driven more by a desire to play live or to write/record new music?
Matt Stevenson (drums): The formation of the band was very spontaneous. Essentially, Scott, Spencer, and (ex-guitarist) Daniel decided that they wanted to form a somewhat doom-oriented band, and I was asked to play drums. The main desire behind the creation of MAKE was to explore writing within a realm of music that we had all held an interest in for some time). Of course, we all wanted to play live and hopefully record, but I think the main drive was simply to explore something new musically.
