Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, Disastroid could be considered a "retro" band - albeit an atypical one. Their heavy sound is rooted in Seattle's Nineties heyday, with plenty of nods to the stoner and noise rock bands of the same decade.

I spoke to vocalist/guitarist Enver Koneya about how the band started with a Craiglist ad, whether or not he considers Disastroid a "throwback" band, and the experience of writing and recording the upcoming Disastroid album Mortal Fools. We also spent some time discussing the Bay Area music scene, and how it may have changed in recent years.

My thanks to Enver for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
