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?
The boys. Having girlfriends tends to give you an upper hand when it comes to getting offstage action
Have you ever been arrested? Where were you, and what was it for?
Have you seen us? We’re angelic. For some reason, all we receive are warnings…
What’s been the worst day job you’ve ever had?
Nat was a stable hand for a while. She scooped poop. HAHA then moved onto playing cello. Sounds like something out of Jane Austen…someone give her a perm.
Sex, drugs and groupies – In what order do you prefer them and how often?
It’s like a martini. Gin, Vermouth and an Olive. Each fine on their own, but much more enjoyable combined. And shaken.
Take us back to the first gig you went to. Where was it and what was the venue?
I went to see Peter Combe in Adelaide when I was three. Every performance I’ve done since then is directly influenced by that day. What a legend.
What’s your favourite site to download music from and do you ever pay for it? Can we find any of your releases there?
I am technologically challenged. If I want new music, I do it the old fashioned way and walk into a store. Triple J Unearthed is a good way to find new artists and we’ve got a couple of songs available to download there. The day our music is available to illegally download will be the day I consider myself successful.
What’s the furtherest you’d go to win over a new fan?
The Imperius Curse…
Right, now that you’ve answered the tough questions, here’s your chance to plug your upcoming gigs and releases…
We are playing at The Evelyn in Fitzroy in Melbourne TONIGHT, Wednesday 27 October and also launching our single “Painter” this Sunday 31st of October at the Grace Darling Hotel, Smith Street, Collingwood. Doors open at 8:30, tickets are $10. It’s looking to be a night of fun times. It will also be our last gig for 2010. Keep an eye out for our EP to be released early 2011.
