How did you two meet and how did Mechachief form?
We met through some old guy we both know named Joseph. He brought him skating one day, he told me everyone in the car some gnarly story about his first sexual experience, which I can’t go into detail about because he currently has a girlfriend that will kill him if she reads this. Everyone thought it was weird, But i knew then and there this kid was awesome. We ended up not hanging out for around 2 years because ,well thats just how life is sometimes, but then ran into each other at a Locust show. He needed a ride home and a place to stay for the night, so he crashed with me. I had just left the other band I was in, and got a free drum set from a friend. So when we woke up, he picked up my guitar, and I got on drums, neither of us knew what we were doing, but we just winged it and have since then just to continue to wing it.
an interview with Joey Sinko by Cecilia Majzoub
for The Zine Is Dead
My name is Joey Sinko and I grew up skateboarding. I started making skate videos at age 14. I hate labels. I like to shoot, edit, act, write, direct, whatever, it’s all good as long I’m working with cool people. I enjoy the process of filmmaking. Anything! Short films, music videos, whatever! I do it under my mom and pop production company Broken TV Pictures. When I’m not doing that, I enjoy drinking coffee, watching Columbo, and doing nothing.
