Canadian rockers Reverse Grip have just released a new video for "Nasty Reputation", a track from their current four-song debut EP with the same name. There is no mistaking the mission of this band -- bring back true rock and roll, built on a sound that can shake the gates of hell, and don't stop until everyone has been violated by Reverse Grip. It was cool to get all three Broda brothers -- Dru (vocals), Sean (guitar) and Dylan (drums) -- to participate in this interview, covering topics ranging from their song writing, influences, and of course, strip clubs!
Sleaze Roxx: Let's start with the band, can you provide a little background on how Reverse Grip got started?
Sean Broda: Well, Reverse Grip is a band formed by 3 brothers -- myself, Dru and Dylan Broda, but the band really got going when our brother Dylan joined. He was the final link to the puzzle and he was able to connect all our musical ideas together which put our live show over the top!
Sleaze Roxx: So there are three brothers in Reverse Grip. I'm assuming this can be good and bad -- have you had any 'OASIS' type blow-ups?
Dru Broda: Dylan had a bit of a "spazz-out" the other night right before our show and tried to pull an "Axl" on us. He had left the club we were playing and I called him and told him I had cut a bunch of people from our guest list because Sean and I had met a bunch of new female fans out front. Dylan freaked out and was screaming at me over the phone. I was sitting there laughing but he was seriously pissed off and said, "Fine, I'll see you tomorrow!" I laughed over the phone and told him I was joking. This didn't go over so well when he showed up and his girlfriend was replaced with a random chick on the list. Regardless, Dylan went on stage and we had a great show. Of course we've gotten to the point of physically fighting, but in the end we always burst out laughing and everything gets sorted out.
Sleaze Roxx: Describe the Toronto rock scene today.
Dru Broda: In one word, "brutal". Rock has a wide variety of subgenres -- Toronto is rich in rock, it's just low in hard hitting intensity.
