Grey Matter Interview from Impact’s 30th Birthday

Josiah Leach, Managing Editor

On Thursday, Sep. 12, Impact 89FM hosted a concert at the Breslin Center in celebration of its 30th anniversary. With musical guests Grey Matter, Beach Bunny and The Front Bottoms, Michigan State’s student radio station received a special celebration fit for its special 30 years.

Above is the interview with Grey Matter. Grey Matter is a self-described “emotional ska-core” band from nearby Lansing, Michigan. Their sound also includes elements of punk, experimental, noise and post-hardcore. Grey Matter is a large unit with lots of members: Mack on vocals, Nick on drums, Jake on bass, Pip on trumpet, Dom and Elliott on sax, Emma on guitar and Kenny on trombone. They cite Minor Threat and Bomb The Music Industry! as their music influences. They performed first at the Birthday Show.
