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?

We’re a hybrid ‘buttock clenching’ band of sex with traditional Casanova like mannerisms but c’mon.. who doesn’t shuffle?

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?

Korn, Ramones, Tool, Michael Jackson, Tina Arena etc..

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

Retreat Hotel…the bass strings snapped, the mini stage collapsed and our singer fell into someone’s chicken parma…don’t think they had Youtube back then

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

A couple of us would go a $12 box of Stanley to push off…then maybe on to the pub for a couple of ‘wee heavys’ I guess. I would have gone to St Jeromes for long necks but we’ve been deprived of that little gem!

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?

If you stretch your budget to $4 you can probably nab our debut EP

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’d kiss Katy Steele, tried once… don’t remember if I succeeded so would love another crack.

Carnation launch their new EP at Fad Gallery, Corrs Lane Chinatown , this Saturday 14th August with special guests Iowa before they embark on a six date tour of Singapore.
