Common Effect is an awesome band from Virgina who really know how to rock. I found them on the baltimore bands website and checked them out. after downloading some of their mp3's i instantly emailed them for permission to make this page. not only did they respond the fastest ever, but they sent me pics to use and filled out the survey within 2 days time. i now will love them forever lol.

*Interview with Andrei*

Q. 1 * How would you guys describe your music?

You’d have to listen for yourself.  I'm not a big fan of classifying music.  It doesn't make any sense.  If it were that easy, everything would sound the same.

Q. 2 * Do you guys ever get into arguments--and if so does it affect the music at all?

We have occasional arguments, but they never get to us.  As a band, four best friends have to be able to work well together.  We could never let conflict slow things down.  It seems that our music reflects our everyday moods and frustrations.

Q. 3 * Which of your songs if your favorite one, and why?

My favorite song is probably FaithCoincidenceFarewell.  The structure of the song seems right and it all flows so smoothly, which is great for our live show.

Q. 4 * What was your most embarassing moment on stage?

I remember playing a show with The Early November (Drive Thru Records).  The power went out in the middle of our third song, as we were building up our set.  Until a friend took the stage and told a joke, we were put on the spot for about 5 minutes.  My mind went blank, and I had nothing to say.

Q. 5 * If you were a sex toy, what would you be & why?

Hmm... that's a good question.  Handcuffs?  That was the first thing that came to mind.  What would you be?

*-*Note from Justi*-* I'd be my mother, she seems to get a lot of action.

Q. 6 * Seriously now, How much DO you love us?

Too much.  Thank you so much for this interview and all the support.  We really appreciate it.  Let me know if you ever need a pair of handcuffs!
