What's the song about?
When you know someone is no good for you but you fall for their lust repeatedly. Next day you're thinking, “damn”.

Is this track from a forthcoming/existing release?
From my debut unreleased EP, The Bona Fide Electric.

How long did it take to write/record?
The EP took a week at Sing Sing South Studios on Chapel Street. The songs have been gigged around town 'bout two years. Damn was actually written on a piano during my studies at VCA and originally the bassline was Dr Dre and Eminem's Guilty Conscious.

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording?
Lots of Appetite For Destruction and Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

Jimi Hendrix, half-time breakdowns.

Do you play it differently live?
The studio and live versions are two different songs and both have their own energies and bring something different.

Will you be launching it?
The Workers Club in Fitzroy on Saturday 5 May. You should be there!
