The Fellatio Masks


We are a comedy alternative rock band from the middle of nowhere in Alabama. There's nothing to do in Alabama, maybe even less, so we did this. If you like songs about pirates, sasquatch, or hilariously pathetic people, and if our name doesn't make you gag a little, (pun definitely intended) give us a listen.






What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a platform for that voice we all have in our head. You guys have that too, right? Anyway, my therapist seems to think that musical expression has helped me tremendously! However, I recently discovered that my therapist was a figment of my overactive imagination... not sure what to do with that.

What is your music dream?

There's this one dream where I'm running from a bear and it always catches me. Instead of mauling me, he introduces himself as Flaniel, which isn't a weird name at all if you're a bear. Afterward, we record an album together.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'd introduce bees as currency. I saw it in a cartoon once.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Too High for the Supermarket by The Uninvited

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Honestly, too many to list.

What inspires you to make music?

A combination of pseudoephedrine and Mexican food.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Something like "Hi, mom! Are ya proud of me now?! Are ya?! Well... oh, good. Love you, too. Bye, mom."

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Generally cold and afraid, but in a good way.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Some of the subgenres could honestly just die off and sink into the Mariana Trench.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think Drooble is fun. I definitely love the opportunity to share whatever the hell my message is and mingle with other musicians.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Working a full-time job. Seriously... that's 40 or more hours a week that I have to pretend to care about anything other than music.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Referring to my previous answer about working a full-time job, I do all that I can to help other musicians quit theirs. A lot of places pay bands a percentage of alcohol sales, so I'll come to your show and get sloshed. I'm talking about totally wrecked. It's a win-win. If you see me passed out in my own bile on the bar, or perhaps in front of your mosh pit, stick a post-it to my face to say thanks.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Talent. You can sound really bad if you must, but try to stand out in some way.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Psychostick, The Fuxedos, The Fellatio Masks, Steel Panther
