60 Seconds With... The Pretty Littles
So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
The band is called The Pretty Littles and I play a hollowed out bible that you can plug into a guitar amp. Viva la Revolution mutha lickers.
What do you think people will say you sound like?
If BABBA were a Vasco Era tribute band instead of an ABBA tribute band, people would say we sounded like that.
What do you love about making music?
What do you hate about the music industry?
Gimmicks. Even backhanded gimmicks like bands smoking nangs on stage. I thought that would be kinda cool, then I saw it and it was the pitts.
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
Probably about one week ago when Levon Helms was still kicking. Then I’d ask him if he wanted to play drums and sing in our band, then sit Will our dummer down and ask if he wants to play ‘percussion’ in our band… basically just give him a maraca or something.. it would be kind of like watching your friends play video games and your 99% sure you’re having a bad time but you keep watching anyway.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
Way worse renditions of songs we have recorded.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
We did an EP late last year which you can get off bandcamp for five beans and we just finished another which we will have in our slippery hands in like a month. The new one is heaps better.
When’s the gig and with who?
The gig is Friday May 4 at Noise Bar with blues rats White Summer and The Cocoa Jacksons who have a rad name and are therefore probably rad. We will be playing our seminal 1999 debut album, Living Legends from start to finish… but don’t worry our encore will have the hits from all our albums.
Anything else to add?
When I grow up I wanna be a parking inspector.
