Fuze:

For those of our viewers out there who haven’t experienced BOBAFLEX yet, please describe the music you guys play…

Shaun McCoy:

Bobaflex is heavy, aggressive, melodic rock with a classic metal influence.

 

Fuze:

After reading up further about the band, we stumbled on some information regarding the Hatfield’s & McCoy’s feud regarding Shaun & Marty…Can you explain this family history briefly for our readers including any experiences the band has had regarding this famous and long standing quarrel?

Shaun McCoy:

We are McCoy’s, originally descended from southern West Virginia, where the feud originated. There have been countless shows, documentaries about it, but the origin of the feud and what caused it is part truth and legend combined. These days Hatfield’s come to shows and try to kill us with shots of whiskey! I’ve gotten drunk coast to coast on moonshine and whiskey with our former enemies.

 

Fuze:

Currently how many albums have you guys produced and are there plans for more in the near future?

Shaun McCoy:

We’ve produced 5 national releases and our new album, ANYTHING THAT MOVES is out in July!!!!

 

Fuze:

Having played many large scale concerts with crowds over 10,000+, how do you adapt to playing smaller venues on tours at venues with crowd capacities 500 or less?

Shaun McCoy:

You just play the same blood and guts show, David Lee Roth said you should play to 10 people the same way you play to an arena and I believe that 100%.

 

Fuze:

Out of all the venues you have played, what has been your favorite? Also do you prefer indoor or outdoor venues?

Shaun McCoy:

My favorite venue is the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio. It’s the club that made us who we are and we almost always sell it out. The love is overwhelming there. Outdoors? I love it, especially in August. I love fighting the heat; it brings a visceral quality to the stage show.

 

Fuze:

How did this group form and is there any interesting stories from the infancy stages of you guys coming together?

Shaun McCoy:

Yeah, make sure you’ve got a good electrical ground for your amp and PA. My brother Marty got electrocuted in Florida by microphone. It knocked him off his feet, cartoon style!!! He was laid out and had to be rushed to the ER. Luckily there was no internal damage. Another situation was at the Alrosa. Some jerk was mauling a girl in the front row. He kept pushing her head into the stage. I leaned down and sang to the girl and when the dude wasn’t looking I hooked my arm around his neck, put him in a choke hold and squeezed until he passed out. Another time a drunk dude got on stage and took a swing at our bass player. Marty hit the guy in the head with a Les Paul! He was rushed out on a stretcher and got nine staples on his head. The guy didn’t press charges and said he was a fan and was so drunk he didn’t remember anything. He apologized to us. Hahaha.

 

Fuze:

We love going deep…Tell us one secret that the fans of BOBAFLEX do not know?

Shaun McCoy:

A secret? We hate Apple pie moonshine! Fans bring it constantly, we don’t wanna be rude, but it’s a joke. It’s not real moonshine. It’s not potent and it tastes like Kool-aid. Don’t call it moonshine. Call it fruity-girl-drink. It’s offensive to my heritage to call that wimpy concoction moonshine. I don’t know what they do when they make it, but dilute the alcohol somehow. A toddler couldn’t get drunk off of it. Plus real moonshine doesn’t taste good. It’s not supposed to. It’s supposed to get you so drunk you hallucinate. Seriously. I drank it (real moonshine) in a dark field one time and kept seeing chickens whizzing by feet. The band thought it was hilarious and let me know there were no chickens around. So that was a secret until now. We used to smile and nod when a fan brought it to be cool. Now, thanks to this interview, they know we despise it!
