Trixter guitar player Steve Brown had a chat with That Metal Interview about the band’s current status.
“I’ll be honest and say that we’re a fragmented band at the moment. Some internal business stuff went on, which I don’t really wanna talk about right now. But, yeah, the band, we’re kind of shut down; we’re really not working. Pete‘s [Loran, vocals] got a day job and he’s taking care of his kids. So, there’s really no band live stuff in the works, sadly. We’re celebrating our 30th anniversary of the first album right now. I’m in the process of working with the record company and also with Universal Music in getting the rights and the master tapes back from the first Trixter record to be able to do a properly licensed 30th-anniversary remixed and remastered deluxe edition vinyl of the first record. So there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes Trixter stuff that I’m doing as far as transferring old demos and getting the material ready for an unbelievable deluxe edition, if the powers that be allow us to do that.
About the other two band members, Steve said:
“But regarding Pete and Gus [drummer Mark ‘Gus’ Scott], there’s nothing really going on there. And really, the beef between the band is with Mark Scott — he’s kind of on the s*it list right now, and I don’t know if that’s ever gonna get repaired. So let’s just enjoy the fact that P.J. [Farley, bass] and I are out there making great music. I’m finishing up mixing P.J.’s new solo CD right now. I have the new Tokyo Motor Fist record coming out. P.J. and I play with Eric Martin from Mr. Big — we do this Mr. Big/Trixter-type show with Eric, which I sing the Trixter songs, and fans are loving it. So there’s always a lot going on. But I don’t foresee the original Trixter band playing anytime soon.”
