Chris From Digger Answers Parx-e Questions
1. how did digger form?
Digger formed in 1995 when a friend of mine named
Joel introduced me to Matt and Mike. We started the band because we all
shared a passion and love for music. Plus it gave us all something to do
besides work and college. We wrote some songs and a month later Phil (who
was on tour with a band called Weston) came home and joined Digger.
We got signed to Hopeless records less than one year later…
2. who were your major influnces?
The Pixies, Decendents, Superchunk, and the Replacements.
3. what has been your favourite gig you have played?

really great time. Afterwards I met alot of people who are now my friends

6. when will see digger come to aussie?
That’s a good question. I always
wanted to come to Australia. I guess we would have to get a tour offer there
and go from there. I would definitely tour if someone made an offer. Just
send me a plane ticket and I’ll come do acoustic shows.
7. what is your beer of choice?
I love Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. But I’ll drink anything. I’m not very picky when it comes to alcoholic beverages.
8. what are you listening to at the moment?
Don’t laugh, but I bought all the 3rd eye blind records and I’ve been jamming to them for the past few
days. I have also been listening to the Rival Schools cd.
