I'm always excited to interview a band from Seattle. It seems like the town has had an explosion of killer bands in recent years. Bands like Tacocat, Wimps, Gazebos, Mommy Long Legs, Pony Time, La Luz and Childbirth have gotten me and plenty of others to pay more attention this city that has always been well known for it's great music.
I caught up with drummer Stacy Peck from the Seattle duo Pony Time before their recent show at Reanimator Records in Winston Salem, NC. We discussed the band's obsession with Fleetwood Mac, writing songs about The Oregon Trail computer game and more. Sadly, the band appears to be on indefinite hiatus for the moment but we'll always have Arby's...
Stacy Peck: Drums
Luke Beetham: Vocals/Guitar
The latest Pony Time album is called Rumors 2: The Rumors are True. Was that very much inspired by Fleetwood Mac?
Yeah, I'm a really big Fleetwood Mac fan. I wouldn't say that Luke totally is but I make him listen to it a lot on tour. I thought it would be really funny if a band tried to say that their album was a sequel to rumors and I said "Why not my band?"
