- SCV: When did your other band Dot Hacker form?
- Jonathan: Well I lived for a few years in northern California, in a town where Spencer Seim and Dan Elkan live, and met Josh Klinghoffer through them. A few years ago, I moved to LA to work with Josh. It’s this interesting thing, because it’s this band made of kind of young session musician types. Like Josh played with Beck, and PJ Harvey and John Frusciante, now he’s the new Chili Pepper. Then there’s Eric Gardner our drummer, he’s played with Charlotte Gainsbourg, Gnarls Barkley, you know, Tom Morello, stuff like that. Clint Walsh has done Gnarls, The Scream, Electric Guest, and many others. So they invited me in to jam with them and I moved to LA to pretty much do that.

- FLABmag: What are your hopes for the band[Dot Hacker]? Do you have any, or is this just a project you guys wanted to do for your own satisfaction with no long-term goals or aspirations to continue beyond the EP and forthcoming LP?
- Jonathan Hischke: We are all very close friends, and I feel like we’ll always be a band. I feel like a huge piece of each of our hearts and souls and creativity live in this project, even though we all have our hands in many pots all the time. We did this only for our own satisfaction, but we are very proud of it, and eager to finally share it with the world. There are a lot of songs and ideas waiting in the wings to be finished and recorded, which is also exciting. Playing more shows is a priority as well.
