"I’d also like to think that we’ll be more successful this year, although we could get dropped by our label – you never know. That’s the nature of this business.”
“I don’t really have that feeling of having to judge myself against other musicians and performers. I’ve got this show, which incorporates all these varying elements, and I just try to bring all that out and to entertain people."
"Honestly we just didn’t want Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings to hear that we were trying to steal their thunder or something like that."
Four of WA's finest give their thoughts on playing the legendary Big Day Out.
“I fucking hate it. I hate it because I think so many good things get lost in people’s frenzy to get something new. People get tired of stuff so quick and I don’t think that a lot of things that should be paid attention to get the attention they deserve."
“I use dance music as a bridge between the past and the future of contemporary music so younger audiences can understand more about other genres as well as dance."
"If we’d have been doing this 25 years ago maybe we wouldn’t be getting the praise that we’re getting now."
"At that point in my life, I just felt stuck. I mean, everyone goes through it; I’m just lucky enough to be in a band that I can write about it”
“When we were finishing Reign Of Terror, the last track we did was Comeback Kid. And Comeback Kid is the most representative of the direction that we’ve headed now, with this new record."
“It’s not the way this band works. We don’t really compliment each other very much. But as long as they didn’t tell me to change it or anything then they must have liked it.”
“Man, I think it’s expanded greatly with the band all coming together and us finally reaching a solidified line-up now.”
"To make a decision like that and to come out and be open with something and then be met with such support is definitely humbling and something that I won’t soon forget."
We go one on one with dance music maestro Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots just in time for his Big Day Out tour.
"As a musician I don’t really consider anything to be heritage or legacy, especially referring to my own stuff. Eskimo Joe don’t play Sweater anymore – does that make them not a heritage act?"
“I’ve been playing the trumpet a little bit. Trying to get into that and figure it out.
"Merriweather… was a great experience for us, even just creatively, writing the songs, recording the songs, and it was something that to us was really kind of special."
“To us I guess it feels pretty natural. It’s a progression that has been slowly taking place over the seven or so years of us being in a band.
"There were a few weeks after Chris left when we were like, ‘Do we want to continue?’ I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to continue with it."
