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?
The band likes getting sweaty and we are performing regularly.
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?
Mantissa, Tumbleweed, Mudhoney and Nirvana all alongside a huge poster from In Bed With Madonna where Madonna, the star of the film, has metal ice cream cones on her breasts… Scary.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
Noisebar… the band that was supplying the backline left after their set and we had to headline the show with a floor tom, snare and hats around 2 hours after we were meant to go on. We played our set at double time, making numerous reverences to camel toes and other in jokes of the night… The two dozen people that stayed got naked and danced and the room smelt like vomit and sweat.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
I don’t really get drunk so I would probably spend it on Pho’ Bo in Preston. Not very rock n’ roll but damn good soup.
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?
Our debut Oddernity, which has just gone out to press and radio, so I imagine a few copies will make it to dixons soon. Some good music ends up in those bins… I bought two of my favourite albums, Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today Is OK and Rock Music in Camberwell Dixons bins.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Delta before cancer, Nintendo and the pimple ads…
The Bon Scotts launch their debut album Oddernity w/Francolin + Owl Eyes at The Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood, Melbourne Friday 8th October.
