Ten bands everyone should know about:

Nine food items that you need to make a kickarse dinner party:
Cheese, crackers, cigarettes, a bottle of whiskey(x 6)
Eight possessions that define you:
A Maton my dad gave me, my fur collection, a pair of Karen Walkers I got as a gift, a Pan figurine Mojo Juju gave me, my small, black songbook, my favourite pair of black heels, I can't think of any more....I generally try not to let my possessions define me.
Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:
Twin Peaks, Carnivale, Star Trek Next Generation, Wizard of Oz, Black Books, Spiceworld, Boardwalk Empire.
Six bad habits you can't escape:
Drinking, smoking, frivolous purchases, Radiohead marathons, late night caffeine, swearing like a trailer whore.
Five people who inspire you:
The Beatles and my manager, Nicole BZ.
Four things that turn you on:
Good hair, good taste, good grammar, Elvis.
Three goals for your music:
For it to be good, stay good and get better.
Two live gigs you'll never forget and why:
A show in Port Macquarie where we cleared the entire room, save for one really short, Spanish man that approached me and said "I like all types of music but your band sucks" and a show we played in Canberra where I promised the audience that if they bought me a whiskey per song, I would drink a whiskey per song...and they did.
One day left before the apocalypse and you…
Finally watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the director's cut. Then I'd watch it again, with commentary.
When's the gig / release?
Every Sunday in October at The Old Bar and Red Bennies October 21 & 22
