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?
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?
Our press releases don’t really name any hip bands. I didn’t really have any posters on my walls when I was younger, I lived in a commune til the age of 16 so I was sharing a room with 30 other people which made it kind of imposing on them to have posters on the walls.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
There have been too many to pick any one in particular, although I had a dream once that I was playing in an Eskimo suit, sweating so badly that I collapsed from heat exhaustion.
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?
Well I don’t know how drunk I could get for $20, for that amount of money we would probably have to go straight to Bunnings and get some mentholated [sic] spirits and then to a supermarket for some cheap mixer, maybe orange juice or something like that.
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?
Young Revelry – YOU AND I
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Noiseworks. Jon Stevens.
