Gap Dream

With LP#2, Gap Dream transformed from '60s-ish Nuggets psych to synth-heavy, dance-friendly spacerock. At the controls is main man Gave Fulvimar, whose charisma and general good-vibe stage presence makes Gap Dream such a fun band to see live. The band will be spreading those positive vibes around Austin for SXSW this week, including at the all-day BURGERMANIA III at Hotel Vegas TODAY (3/15). There's also Burgerama III which happens in Santa Ana, CA later this month. Amidst all this burgering, Gabe was nice enough to answer our 5 QUESTIONS:

1) What is your favorite venue to play in the country and why?

The Happy Dog in Cleveland cuz it's one if our home spots then I guess I'd have to say the observatory in Santa Ana since that's our other homespot but I like anywhere honestly.

2) Tell us about the worst show you've ever played.

Never had a particularly bad show as gap dream but one time I ate too many mushies and broke a string and it was a total nightmare I actually really would rather not bring it up but I don't want to lie to you.

3) What are some albums that you guys have been spinning in the van lately?

Usually whatever lee wants to listen too I got some new headphones so I'm gonna be listening to those. :)

4) What would your metal band name be?

Gap Dream

5) Be honest: how often do you change your clothes on tour?

When I can. Last year for sxsw I didnt have time to do laundry before I split so I rolled with a suitcase filled with dirty clothes it fucking sucked. Never again.

Colonel Forbin stared up at the mountain
And wiped away the beads of sweat
That glistened on his brow
His tired feet were buried in the quagmire
And his bloodshot eyes saw all that lay between him
And fulfillment of his vow

And he felt his fingers wrap around a knotted root
And pulled his body upwards
To a sea green mossy boulder
And he dragged his weary shit-ass up the mountain

And he climbed so slowly
He climbed so slowly

Suddenly he heard the crack of thunder
And the rocks began to crumble overhead
And tumble down the mountain to the
Dismal swamp that lay beneath the jagged cliffs
Through which his path had led
And the earth began to quake beneath his feet
And the mighty mountain changed before his eyes
And he stood amidst a sea of dust and rocks and stones
Cascading down the mountain
And a thousand birds were headed for the sky. Oh...

The sacred creed will be yours
And if you wait until tomorrow
The sacred creed will be yours
To devour
To seize
And to obey

When the dust had cleared, the colonel lifted up his head
And was driven to his knees by a blazing beam of light
And he saw the silhouette that stood before him
And he bowed in reverence
Trembling in the shadow of the mighty legend's form
Icculus the prophet stood before his eyes
Looking down on Colonel Forbin
Where he shuddered in the puddles and the muck
And he quietly addressed him

And he spoke so slowly
He spoke so slowly
He said,

"Colonel Forbin I know why you've come here
And I'll help you with your quest to gain the knowledge that you lack
I call upon my faithful friend the mockingbird
To fly and seize the helping book and bring it to your shack
And a tree of knowledge in your soul will grow
And the Helping Friendly Book will plant the seed
But I warn you that all knowledge seeming innocent and pure
Becomes a deadly weapon in the hands of avarice
And greed

"The sacred creed will be yours
And if you wait until tomorrow
The sacred creed will be yours
To devour
To seize
And to obey
And to obey"

What about 5 Questions directed at KEXP and how they completely fucked up a station that mattered, KCMU.

All I wanna do is to thank you
Even though I don't know who you are
You let me change lanes
While I was driving in my car
