Sure, we're always curious to know about an artist's upcoming release, most recent tour, or arsenal of analog gear, but XLR8R's also got a curiosity for quirk. Thus, each week, we email a different artist to find out what makes them tick, in the studio and in life. This week: Fear of spiders and regrets over Facebook applications. That would be Poker Flat boss Steve Bug.
