So, what’s the origin of the band name?
GH: (Ryan points to Geoff) My baby! The music started as a side project to a band I was working with in Philly. It was like all of those first songs. But Hands came from, I don’t know, it’s what we use
a lot, it’s what we use the most. I think I saw a Discovery channel thing about somebody getting a hand reattached.
So what instruments do you guys use?
GH: Let’s see, Banjo, guitar, bowflex, echoplex. If you’re gonna talk about one thing, I’d say it’s the echoplex. And our amps. And Ryan’s homemade guitar. Anything we feel is necessary when we come up with an idea. Sometimes Sweeney will tell me an idea for a song with an instrument we don’t even have yet.
RS: You know, live we use samplers for our drums. And that’s pretty much all of it.
