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?
Both. The unfortunate thing about being in a band that is that you may have the Casanova abilities, but you rarely have to time or money to put in the effort to actually get to third base. Its a lot easier for a guy in a band to have a random conversation with a chick, but its easier for a guy that works full time to buy her a drink and take her to dinner!
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 was a huge Grinspoon fan when i was younger. Between those guys, Powderfinger, You Am I and Incubus, my wall was well and truly covered. With the occasional B-Witched or Spice Girls poster.. purely for perv factor of course.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
I honestly don’t have one that stands out. Those sort of things get shoved to the back of your brain because its hard enough to stay motivated in this business as it is, without focusing on the occasional rubbish gig.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
This is a rather ironic question, as today i am getting paid $20 for the week! Head straight to the bottle shop and pick up a cask of Coolabah Tree Fruity Lexia, grab a pack of Doritos (cheese supreme of course) and that’s enough to get 4 people very happy. Plus you will have 5c change.
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 can find any of our releases in a bargain bin i would be very impressed! We have 3 EP’s floating around out there that all had limited releases.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Can i be really heterosexual here and say the Veronicas? I would point out which particular one , but that would be like picking which type of cheddar cheese to buy from the supermarket.. it’s all good.
