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?
Adam is a pilot and he’s also getting his gun license – that’s bound to get him some kind of action. Laurence received an anonymous love letter this week (at least until he finds out it was a joke). Mike has a pretty serious stalker problem. Probably Alex though, his secret being that he lives with his girlfriend.
Have you ever been arrested? Where were you, and what was it for?
Alex was once fined for being caught peeing in an alley. That alley already smelled like urine! It couldn’t have ALL been him!
Seriously though, we’re not permitted to talk about ongoing criminal investigations.
What’s been the worst day job you’ve ever had?
Mike cleaned genital washbasins and toilet aids for the disabled and elderly.
Sex, drugs and groupies – In what order do you prefer them and how often?
Give the groupies drugs until we can have sex with them. What order is that?
Take us back to the first gig you went to. Where was it and what was the venue?
Mike saw The Wiggles at Bondi in the early 90s, before they got big. It was a formative experience.
What’s your favourite site to download music from and do you ever pay for it? Can we find any of your releases there?
Mike still buys CDs. Laurence does the whole illegal Mediafire thing. Nothing of ours there yet though – one day!
What’s the furthest you’d go to win over a new fan?
Right, here’s the plug section – tell us about upcoming gigs/tours and releases.
We’re releasing 6 singles in 6 months, online at http://superflorencejam.bandcamp.com/ where they can be downloaded for any price (including zero dollars, accourse). Our next one, the strangely-titled ‘Bloozepower’, is being launched on Saturday 26th March at the Gaelic Theatre in Surry Hills, where we’ll be playing a hooj set supported by The Salvagers, Where’s Jerome and JUNK. Do it, kids. There may be a rocket.
