Tell us about your Release ‘San Fran’ ?
DAN: It’s a newbie that we have been eager to get out there for a while now; also our favorite song to play live. We recorded it with Colin Wynne at Thirty Mill studios with Mark Opitz who produced some of the classic bands such as Divinyls, The Angels & INXS to name a few. The track holds a lot of anger and energy and the dark lyrics just kinda of flowed out as we wrote it.
What’s your favourite work at this point in time? (your own or your group’s work)
DAN: We both for some reason love ‘Honey Punch’ the most, which we released very casually with a D.I.Y punky clip. I think we love it so much because it’s so raw and we got to do a popping pink video for it which was so much fun to shoot and edit.
Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
EL: The first day of recording with this legendary producer, we obviously were nervous & excited. Dan plugged in his bass rig and as he started jamming we watched in terror as the vibrations from the bass shook the dust out of the cracks in the wall and nearly put a split in the house. Needless to say we probably didn’t make the best first impression. Or they may have loved it, but their faces definitely said otherwise. haha.
What, or who, inspires you?
DAN: Nothing like a big hot bowl of spicy Pho to get us in the mood for making some dirty rock n roll. No seriously, being musicians, we are crazy busy all the time and end up getting rundown or sick, so Pho is our muse.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
El: ‘Gold,Guns & Girls’ by Metric
Dan: ‘Van Inhalin’ by Grasshole.
What’s next for you?
DAN: Releasing heaps of new music and videos which we have already brewing, some of which are already recorded. Also to tour lots this year and hopefully pop our cherry on playing some festivals! Oh!!! and buy some new socks! God damn, they must have legs on em, cause they keep fucking running away.
What’s your scene?
DAN: Our scene is drinking tea in a nice cabin in the mountains whilst on tour with really good company. Bonus points would be having a pig running around or a dog or a monkey. Also must involve a huge vegan burger and chips, lots of chips.
