Subract-S may have been making a name for themselves in the Adelaide music scene but soon they will be arriving in your music collection thanks to their brand new single (alone on a) Monday becoming available through Rue Morgue Records in February. To find out a little more about the band HEAVY Mag sat down with band member Paul Vainickis.
“The band started off as a Gary Neumann cover band called Almost Neumann,” says Vainickis with a laugh. “They did for a few years and then decided to play some original tracks and decided to change their name to Subtract-S. I was going along and seeing them play every weekend for about a year and then one day they asked if I wanted to play in a show and here I am.”
“I’ve known John for about thirty years,” explains Vainickis when we talk about how he came to know John Raptis and decided that Subtract-S should sign with Rue Morgue Records. “Ever since he started a KISS fanzine back in the late 1980s which I remember I started collecting when I was about 10 years old. So I have been in contact with him ever since then and I saw when he put out the call saying he was looking for bands…. he took a listen and here we are.”
(alone on a) Monday will be released by Rue Morgue Records in February.
