On being a 'heavy' band
Janlo: If you can call us a rock band we're happy with that.

Jeff: Just don't call us emo. I'm sick of that. Like, what is that? Grunge for today?

Janlo: It's grunge for primary school kids.

Which band would you like to be for a day?
Janlo: I would love to be Led Zeppelin. I would love to be John Bonham, but not dead.

Jeff: Everyone likes Zeppelin, so I'd have to go with Tool. Maynard James Keenan is apparently an asshole, so we'd probably get along.

Tell us about your song Google4War…
Janlo: It's a resistance song at heart. It's about standing up and fighting.

Jeff: For me it was about being a full blown drug addict, when I felt: "I do have a right to clean myself up and stop being a dick". Everyone has the right to enjoy their life without bullshit, like drugs.

On a rating from one to ten, how wild does a Myepic after party get?
Grant: Probably about six o'clock.

Joburg rockers Myepic are on the up and up, having landed a massive gig with Seether in Joburg and just launched the video for their blues-with-mascara romp, “Where’d the love go?”. We caught them on tour to talk rock, Seether, & why it’s difficult to please the fans at home.
