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 Inquisition 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?
Yeah, I heard that rumour about being in a band can make you more popular with the fairer sex. On a personal note, however, these rumours remain unsubstantiated.
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?
I would have been more inclined to put up posters of those painfully hip bands up on my wall in order to keep up appearances with my friends. When in reality, I could often be found listening to anything from Cat Stevens to The Eurythmics or even Roxette. But, Drew Barrymore always got a guernsey when it came time to redecorate my wall.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
Easy, we were asked to play at a warehouse party last year. I thought it would be awesome fun and just like in the movies. But when we arrived, all dressed up in our regular human clothes, we were met by an array of cape wearing candy flippers. I’m sure our inoffensive folk-pop tunes were not exactly what they were after at the time but they were all in an appreciative frame of mind.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
Just come around to my place and we can get stuck into 3 bottles of McWilliams Inheritence Cab Merlot. It’s only $7 at our local bottle’o. I’ll lend you a dollar.
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?
We have only recently finished our debut E.P. Its self titled and has a pretty picture of a bird on the cover.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Dan Sultan. Because having a gun to my head would be a great way to explore my man crush whilst saving face with my mates.
Canos play a headline show at Ding Dong Lounge on Friday 11th June. Doors open 8pm.
