I recently had a moment to speak with Matt Tybor (aka The Bunny) of the experimental, electro hardcore act, The Bunny The Bear. The band recently released their newest offering, The Food Chain, and are currently on the road in support thereof. Here is how the conversation went.
If you could choose, how would you die? The Bunny: I'm not exactly sure how I'd like to pass, but I'd probably want it to be by my own hand, or at least something suiting for whatever mood I'm in when the time comes.
Has a fan ever really pissed you off? What happened? The Bunny: Not in any significant manner. I mean, there's always those fans that make statements that are slightly offensive in some way or another, mainly because they really have no clue about inner workings of touring, music, business... But that's expected. All in all I usually have great experiences with fans!
What's one of the most fucked up things that's happened to you as a musician? The Bunny: No clue. Definitely could have popped a blood vessel or two the few times I was stiffed on pay though.
Check out the song "First Met You"
What scares the absolute shit out of you? The Bunny: Spiders! I am terrified of them.
You find someone's wallet in the street. It contains a ton of cash and/or a winning lottery ticket inside and their ID. What do you do? The Bunny: I would probably contemplate for way too long. Then leave my actions up to my wife. Thanks wife!
Name some of your biggest pet peeves. You know... the ones that make you want to wreck shit! The Bunny: Chewing with your mouth open, sloppy eaters, long fingernails, musicians that don't ever shower or clean themselves. I could go on.
Name someone you’d like to punch in his or her stupid face, and why. The Bunny: Beyoncé... And no clue, seeing her makes me livid.
If you weren't a musician or totally in love with your job, you'd be... The Bunny: A bunny... A boring ass bunny.
How often have you/do you pirate music? What about Movies and TV shows? The Bunny: I pay for Spotify, no need to steal music. As far as movies and TV shows.. I'll just zip my lips.
When was the last time you cried and why? The Bunny: May have shed a tear or two when my Puggle ate my hat yesterday. Worst day ever.
Describe your wildest drug experience. The Bunny: Don't even get me started.
