We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files, however we don’t like regurgitating press releases or asking the easy questions. No-one gets out of the Tone Deaf Interrogation lightly, so just hold still, grit your teeth, clench your buttocks and be still while we put on the rubber gloves, apply the thumbscrews, and pull out our thermometer while you open up and say ahhhhhhhhhhh… Truthful answers only or we drink your rider while you’re on stage.

Everyone joins or forms a band to get laid. If your band represents your sex life are you Casanova or spending plenty of time doing the five knuckle shuffle?

Oi Vey! I definitely wouldn’t want my music life to represent my sex life. Spending all my days in a claustrophobic room doing remixes, recording, studying, listening to records and doing admin by myself. That’s definitely a five knuckle shuffle scenario. Everyone knows journalists get the real tail.

We don’t want to know about the painfully hip bands your press release says you’re influenced by. Take us back to your bedroom when you were 14. What band posters did you have on the wall?

Just a Ninja Turtles poster and Suzanne Somers blow up

What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?

Actually the last Melbourne gig supporting Girl Talk, tuning my bugged out guitar without a tuner in front of a massive venue packed with not so forgiving Melbourners. Oi Vey

Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
If we only got 20 bucks and its for getting boozed, we haven’t got much an option really. Goon in an alleyway

We’ve been looking in the $2 bin at Dixons Recycled and also bidding on eBay – what releases are we looking for there that your band has put out?

Only a single that we did for this tooheys commercial. While you’re there grab me a copy

Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?

James Domeyko and Jaie Gonzalez from ‘Domeyko/Gonzalez’. Because they play in my live band and maybe the exist mophos in any profession.

Danimals play with Love Connection, Domeyko/Gonzales + Isle Adore @ The Workers Club in Melbourne this Friday 20th August
