The Chaz Interviews - July, 2003
by Chaz and the artists

It was the summer of 2003 and's active message board community was heating up as well -- with flame wars. Along came Chaz Fanaro, looking to cut through the negative noise. He began to interview many of the musical artists who pitched a tent on the popular indie music forum. Others pitched in with questions of their own. July of 2003 could have turned ugly, but thanks to the interviews blanketing the forum, it became a home for insight and mutual respect. The forums were wiped clean by Vivendi in December, 2003. The interviews live on.

How did the name Foddershock become the band name?

Well, the name comes from back in the days before the internet and a time when we only had one fuzzy station on the television. We had a form of ancient communication called citizen's band radio. It was my brother who used the "handle" Foddershock first. So I stole it from him.... later on it was said by one particular radio DJ. Hey this music gives you Fodder for thought and is sometimes quite Shocking.

What are your goals and what do you have planned for your music?

Let's see..... plans for my music.... Hmmmm... Make more of it I reckon. But have been told by a few I should start making the world a better place by quitting.....
Seriously though. I'm just letting it go where it will. We already consider ourselves successful. Just by being here at for these four years. 50,000 some listens, and had our music used in a documentary, and an award winning independant film, that is currently on the curicut... All just from us having tunes here.
As far as goals.... I'd like to get our music out to many more public and NPR radio stations across the country.

Humor, serious, and quite the tale teller, I just finished listening to Foddershock, tell me what is "Black Dust"?

We're always mixing it up. We just mostly use things that we see in our day to day lives. Tales about the people we see or know here in the Appalachians. They can be songs about our friends, neighbors or a combination of personalities. They can be funny or quite sorid. Afterall life ain't all fun and games. As for the song "Black Dust" we live right in the heart of coal country. My grandfathers, father and all my brothers were all coal miners. The instrumental tune came to me one day when I was recalling a time when my dad came home from the mine, and as he sat on the porch steps taking off his boots I could see the black coal dust catching the sun and it sparkled and swirled. It really caught my eye and I thought it was kinda pretty...surely something that I'll never forget... hell I was just a kid then and never realized this stuff was killing him. But that sparkling black dust took away his breath.
