Until we have explicit clearance from Andy or Neal, it wouldn't be right to re-post anything of theirs.
However, MWK's myspace has everything you could ever want in terms of where to find music, old blogs, links, history and other band members through the years

OLD INTERVIEW WITH MID WEST KINGS

May 29, 2003 -
Conducted by: S. Loupe
• Who are you and what instrument do you play?
Neal: I'm Neal Tiemann, Guitar.
Robby: I'm Robby and I play drums.
Andy: My name is Andy Skib and I sing and play guitar in a band called MWK.
Justin: I am Justin Briggs, I play bass in MWK.

• How did you come up with the band name?
Andy: Well, the band name, just like much of the music in MWK, comes from the incredibly strange mind of Neal Tiemann.
Neal: I made up the name because we needed something to explain the acronym, MWK.
Justin: Neal came up with it while we were at a studio in Sapulpa as the goofy name for a side project, and the ongoing joke just stuck.

• Who inspires you the most?
Robby: My family.
Neal: Bjork inspires me the most.
Andy: Any musician or performer with a luring presence on stage inspires me to perform.
Justin: No one person inspires me. When someone does something really extraordinary then I'm inspired.

• Describe your music style.
Andy: Our musical style, in my mind, is hard to describe. I would say that we play rock music with songs tat are able to be played in different ways because of the lyrics and melodies. Just about every one of our songs sounds great either live with the full band or just played with an acoustic guitar.
Robby: Rock with a different edge to it; more diverse rock.

• Define music in one sentence.
Justin: Music is the display of human emotions through musical instruments.
Andy: Music is a bunch of different sounds that gravitates people together.
Neal: The ultimate power, it drops you and lifts you at the same time.
Robby: It is sounds that make you have emotion.

• We ask every band this, do you like pineapple?
Neal: I love pineapple.
Robby: Nope.
Andy: Pineapples rule.
Justin: Yes, especially the pineapple chunks in a can. But not on pizza.

• What bands do you like that everyone else thinks is lame?
Robby: Aerosmith, pop, R&B, and stuff.
Andy: Nickel Creek, String, and James Taylor are the only ones I can think of.
Justin: I don't know who everyone else thinks is lame, but I like Silverchair, Tool, Injected, and Caroline's Spine. If everyone else thinks that they are lame, well that's really sad. No, just kidding, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Neal: I like Avril Lavigne, techno, and Alanis Morisette.

• Are there any great unsigned bands that you would like the rest of the public to know about?
Justin: New Science.
Neal: New Science, Big Hate, and Kenna.
Robby: Us, and a band called New Science in Tulsa
Andy: Revis is a good band. They are getting pretty popular in the U.S. and I've seen them twice in Tulsa.

• What CD's do you currently have in your CD player?
Andy: Pearl Jam. I just got off of a long round of Silverchair, but right now it's mostly Revis and Pearl Jam.
Neal: The White Stripes, Coldplay, and Black Label Society.
Justin: Silverchair, Tool, Injected, Caroline's Spine, Our Lady Peace, Maroon 5, and Pearl Jam.
Andy: New Science.

• Any profound words of wisdom?
Neal: Don't take for granted characters in video games; they die so you don't have to.
Andy: Stay in school, unless you're in a band.
Justin: If you are going to do something, go all the way, don't hold back.

What really blows me away about MWK is that they recorded Midwest Kings in 2003 when Andy was 17 and Neal was 20! (And yes, I can subtract, but their birthdays are at the end of the year.) They were just babies! My God, what talent these guys possess. That CD has many of my favorite MWK songs on it. It just amazes me how they could put out something like that at such a young age. It makes me excited for what they will do in the years to come.

pattieann, that blows me away, too. Sometimes I'll be listening to a song from Midwest Kings and think to myself: Seventeen. He was seventeen. And Neal...writing those kinds of lyrics at such a young age. It's ridiculous. lol

And I believe that the Axium song "Hold" was recorded when Andy was 16 and David was 19. Crazy stuff.
