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?
We’re kind of like summer from the OC. haha. Everyone thought she was a bit of a slut but then when it got to business time it was revealed she was a virgin. We’re young and still just sussing everything out, but we’re also throwing ourselves in the deep end and trying to get this up and running as soon as possible. For the band members that don’t have girlfriends it’s still a bit of the five knuckle shuffle for now.
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?
Moz – Linken Park
Nick – Ben Harper
Jackson – Nirvana
Sean – Eminem
Josh – Radiohead
Zach – Beyonce
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
In May we played the Vineyard in St Kilda on a thursday night. The crowd was very relaxed and had no patience for the noise pollution we were causing. Only half of us could fit on the stage meaning Zach was singing from the audience with no foldback to pitch off. We felt very out of place in a tiny room that was really more of a backbackers cafe rather than a live music venue.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
Wow $20!!!! That’s more than enough. Probably $10 will go towards a communal sack of Golden Oak dry white (goon). Then you log on to facebook to find out if it’ll be a house party in the bush, a friends gig in the city or hope you get a txt from a random number about a warehouse party. The spare $10 will pay for the early morning maccas on the way home!
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?
Well if you’re on ebay you should open up another tab and log onto triple j unearthed. From there you can download our two tracks for free and save the $2 for a band that have actually released some material for sale. Or you could keep adding to that $2 and by the end of the year you should be able to afford our debut EP/LP/Whatever we come up with.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Daniel Marie from Howl because he has the cheekiest smile. Or Bernard Fanning from Powderfinger due to the manly facial hair he grows sometimes.
