NAME: William Rees
INSTRUMENT: Viola, Guitar
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Not sure, but Fugazi’s Repeater was the first vinyl I bought, at age 15.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Most likely something classical… otherwise, probably Blink 182 when I was 12 years old.
3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Viola.
4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … Again, something classical most likely. In my own band, though, the first song we ever played was called “Intro.” Creative, I know…
5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … Boxes of Squares
