Omule : What musicians would you like to see in a movie directed by Tarantino?
Hefe : Beach boys / Slayer / Manu chao / Les Baxter
Omule : Favourite places you love to perform at.
Hefe : Small clubs are the best because you can feel the energy directly in your face and you can connect better with the crowd and that makes a rock n roll show perfect.
Omule : How about music festivals? What do you think about today’s festivals hosted in Romania?
Hefe : Nowadays Romania is a good place to be for festival goers and hopefully the music scene will develop together with the festivals.Personally i m not a big fan of this kind of big open air events and i ll rather go to see a band playing their own show in a club.
Omule : Books and movies that every music lover should read/watch.
Hefe : Books - Get in a van by Henry Rollins, Grunge Is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music, Johnny Ramone - Commando, Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground, 1981–1991, Huey Morgan - Rebel heroes

Movies - Another state of mind, Some kind of monster, Get Thrashed !, Sonic Highways, Hip hop evolution, American Hardcore: The History of American Punk Rock 1980–1986
Scratch !, Dogtown and Z-Boys, Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-90).
Omule : Do you have favourite podcasts?
Hefe : Of course .....I LOVE listening to podcasts
Here are my favs : Henry Rollins - harmony in my head, Josh Homme - the alligator hour, Mike D - the echo chamber, Jamey Jasta - the Jasta show, Lars Ulrich - it s electric, Huey Morgan -The Huey show&BBC radio.
Omule : Radio has a special place in my heart.I know you have a nice radio show : Playground at Rock FM. What do you like the most about working with Adi Despot?
Hefe : Playground is about a “bro”mance and working with my very good friend and “ fun-kick “ makes this show so important to me.When people die they say their life flashes before their eyes.In my case i m sure i will smile and feel great when the “playground” part will start flashing.
