1. What Do You Look For In A Band?
Members who are enjoying what they do, and doing it with guts. Something angular and provocative, in all aspects – performance and songwriting. It’s a great thing to be able to get equal enjoyment from watching any individual member of a band at one time. A band that can take my brain off my mind, and my mind off my brain.
2. Keeping Busy
We’ve just recently released our debut self-titled EP at the end of last year; we’ve been playing plenty of awesome cartwheeling shows around Melbourne town, ‘Ads’ and Tassie at the start of 2014. We will be completing our mini-tour of Oz with a show at OAF the day after Valentine’s Day, whilst simultaneously writing plenty of new bangers. In the meantime we’ve been working for the hard man stacking benjis so we can bring you The Wakka Wakka Blam Blam (a working title for our debut LP).
3. Best Gig Ever
Our first gig together was very memorable. ’Twas a house party in West Street, at our mate R. West’s house on the west side of Melbourne. Nothing beats playing to a lounge room full of nudists while they proceed to smack a piЦata shaped as a likeness of the host of the party. There was blood, sweat and rears.
4. Current Playlist
The soundtrack to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth with David Bowie, “Daddy daddy get me outta here”. Chic – anything Nile Rodgers. Plenty David Byrne-stock, always time for that. Jon Hopkins – Immunity, really early/late in the morning. Aphex Twin – ‘Windowlicker’. Savages – ‘Don’t Let The Fuckers Get You Down’. Mac DeMarco. Cypress Hill, particularly Black Sunday. Wu-Tang Clan. And some others … ESG, Flying Lizards, Devo, Divinyls, The Drones, DJ Shadow, Thee Oh Sees, Television.
5. Your Ultimate Rider
Tony Abbott’s head on a stick. A cheese platter and a swimming pool. Air conditioning. Water, jam donuts, hot cross buns, pizza, two KFC snack boxes with popcorn chicken and sweet and sour sauce, one cafe latte, two long blacks and a cappuccino, a buttload of marshmallows, Zac Efron dressed as a tampon, and warm velvet panties for all… Please, thank you.
