Keran- Your career started as a solo artist what made you decide to form a band?

 visan- Well I always want to be in a band before too as I’m straight to rock genre. So, finally I formed a band after my solo career.

keran-What's the name of your band? What's the origin of that name?
- Its STOND AMP but it was STON"E"D AMP before. We just removed "E" from that due to some censored reason so it’s just a short formed of STOND AMPLIFIRE... ha-ha...

Keran-Please list the name and the respective instrument of the each band members?
visan- STOND AMP lines up: vocals- Visan Yonjan
                        Lead guitar- Bzu Karmacharya
                        Bass guitar- Rosan Thapa
                               Drums- Sabin Shrestha

keran- How many have you all know each other, how did you meet ?
nBzu and myself were together from long time ago since we used to work in the same recording studio called Acoustica. And the remaining members met later in gigs so in this way we formed a band coz of the same head and taste towards music.

keran-. Which of your songs do you perform most frequently? Do you ever play any covers?
visan- Of course "Vanana" as we got infect we are still getting good responses from our fans and well-wishers. Ya ! We do cover songs whenever we gig in Thamel.

keran- Who write your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs?
Well in our debut album, Bzu and myself wrote & composed all the songs and the music filling part has done by STOND AMP. Basically the themes of our songs are about love/tragedy but we've done some songs about life and human nature too.

keran- Could you briefly describe the music making process of Nepal?
Normally we write lyric in a certain topic then we compose in the right way and finally we fill music but it depends upon time to make the good song while working on it.

keran- How was your music involved since you began playing music together with the band?
Well as i said before too that we (STOND AMP)'ve the same taste of music individually so its just we ride away with our genre.

keran- Where have you performed? What are your favorite and least venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?
visan- We've performed in Nepal and out of country too like Chitwan,Ktm,Dharan,Kalinpong,Sikkim,Darjeeling. ummmmm... our best shows were in Chitwan and Sikkim, we rocked them all...... and we are performing in Pokhara soon around festive season.

keran-What advice do you have for people who want to form their band?
- Its all about teamwork, feelings and understanding towards each other to form a good band So in my view if these things work out together in a right way then it going to go long way as a band.
keran- Is there anyone you'd like to acknowledge for supporting or inspiring behind your band?
Its all the great rock musicians all over the world.
