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?

It depends where abouts we are in Australia. In Sydney, Aaron our drummer turns into a maverick that returns home after a gig covered in hickies and scratch and bite marks. Munzy aspires to match Aaron’s bedroom capabilities one day, but he has many things to learn before he becomes a love master like our drummer. Brendan and john are lovers together.

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?

As 14 yr olds we were pretty much the weirdest guys in the world. John had backstreet boys and craig david posters. Munzy had Scottish premier league posters, he’s a massive rangers fan. Aaron had a massive bob Dylan poster above his bed that he used to fantasise about. Brendan had Michael Jackson posters and dreamed of one day being invited to one of his sleepovers.

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

Maybe this place in northern nsw that shall remain nameless. There was about 4 people in there and it was just terrible. Aaron got bed bugs in the accommodation there after we played.

Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?

Aldi. We would buy the cheapest, gnarliest vodka there and mix it with wee to create a fruity fusion goodness.

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?

Well we have an ep on itunes at the moment. Its called catching a killer. We’re pretty stoked about it. So froth your tits off.

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

This is a very tough question…i would have to say haydn from calling all cars. I say this because of his amazing eye lashes and his toned body. He’s a very attractive man with a rugged beard that looks very nice to stroke and caress. I have to give a notable mention to josh from Miami horror though, he shakes his hips real good.

Red Ink Launch their brand new EP ‘Catching A Killer’ on Friday October 22nd at HiFi Bar Melbourne.
