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?
Interesting question Tone Deaf. Without revealing too much, as you should never kiss and tell, I would say we’re Casanova. But who’s to say Casanova doesn’t likes to dance the shuffle occasionally.
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?
Jebediah, No Fun At All, Grinspoon, Nirvana. Something for Kate, White Zombie. Green Day.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
Worst gig would have been a regional WA gig we did a couple of years ago. There was 1 solitary payer and would you believe she was a Transvestite. We are big in the Trans-gender scene.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
I would get a bunch of friends together, head to a liquor superstore buy 2 casks of whatever is on special and get loose at someone’s house. If I was alone I would do something very similar, only difference being I would get slightly better cask.
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?
There is only one you want which is our debut album ‘Hold, Hold, Fire’ Hopefully it isn’t $2 at Dixons yet. I’m sure it’s still got a street value of at least $5.50.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
I would kiss Tim Rogers . No need for the gun. There’s not one frontman in Australia who has as much Rock&Roll swagger as that guy. I’d like to think that after we made out, he would hit me in the face with a near empty bottle of Jack Daniels and tell me I was a shit kisser. He also has a chest tattoo that’s better than you.
Calling All Cars tour Australia for their debut album ‘Hold, Hold, Fire’, September 3rd – October 2nd. They’ve got 15 dates booked so be sure to look out for them at a venue near you.
