We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files, but we don’t like regurgitating press releases or asking the easy questions. At Tone Deaf we only ask the tough questions, 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.

Who gets the most ‘off stage action’ in the band? What’s the secret to their success?

We all have so much on stage action, were all too tired for the second rate off stage stuff. The secret is onstage action.

Have you ever been arrested? Where were you, and what was it for?

No, nowhere and nothing

What’s been the worst day job you’ve ever had?

Caltex. Didnt last long there. Second to musician interviewee of course

Sex, drugs and groupies – In what order do you prefer them and how often?

In that order, sex very often, drugs and groupies not often.

Take us back to the first gig you went to. Where was it and what was the venue?

Back in south africa for an outfit called ‘Pumpkin Patch’. Scared the shit out of me.

What’s your favourite site to download music from and do you ever pay for it? Can we find any of your releases there?

http://loronix.blogspot.com/ a great man by the name of ‘Zecalour’ and documents hundreds of Brazilian records all with personal anecdotes.

This site can change your life if you let it. And I wish you could,but you would not find my releases there. I buy a lot of records new and old. I do not have an itunes account.

What’s the furthest you’d go to win over a new fan?

Unzip my…….backpack and fang em a CD.
