checking in on…repeater

May 17, 2012

My good buddy Rob let me interview him for the May 17th issue of OC Weekly, so we went at got some beers at Monkish Brewing in Torrance and shot the shit for a few hours. This is a waaay edited down version of the original interview–that’s what happens when you only have space for 450 words.

Repeater (Mostly) Reunite to Work on New Material

[Checking In On . . .] Rob Wallace and Steve Krolikowski aim to take their sound in yet another new direction

Say it again

When Repeater went into the studio to record with “The Godfather of Nü-Metal” Ross Robinson in 2009, fans of both the famous Korn producer and the unsigned post-punk-ish band from Long Beach were stoked. But by the time We Walk From Safety was released last summer, the band were near dissolution. After performing a seemingly routine show at Detroit Bar in September, Repeater went on an unannounced hiatus, regrouping only weeks ago (minus a few members). We sat down with keyboardist-turned-bassist Rob Wallace to talk about writing pop songs, “right” vs. “wrong” music, and singer Steve Krolikowski‘s genius.
