Has the party side of the music industry been all you were hoping for so far in your career? Parties? What parties?
What is the best thing that's happened to you/your band so far? Playing shows to enthusiastic punters that get into it/sing along is always rad. Sitting at #6 in the rock charts alongside bands like Foo Fighters, INXS and AC/DC was an exciting time too.
Are your ambitions mainly artistic or commercial? The artistic side of it is the real drive, and people getting stoked on the music you're making, that's really cool. Any sort of commercial success is just a bonus.
Is your music best rendered in the studio or the live realm? Definitely live! It's that chemistry and energy and no two live shows are the same.
If you could have any act past or present join you on your next tour who would you tap? The J Geils Band. Just because they're cool.
What industry lessons would you like to take away from the BIGSOUND conference? Where to find a great manager.
What acts are you looking forward to checking out at the BIGSOUND showcase? Born Lion.
Why should people come and see you from amongst the many cool bands at BIGSOUND? Because we're badass. You may be struck by a flailing limb.
