The Count With... Private Life
Private Life (Renee Cassar and Jamie Barlow)
Ten bands everyone should know about:
Beach House, Twin Shadow, Blonde Redhead, Spoon, Lizzy Mercier, Pavement, M. Ward, Alexander, Dirty Projectors, Ainslie Wills
Nine food items that you need to make a kickarse dinner party:
Jamie is head chef around here, so he says he needs; "people" but I kindly pointed out that people are not food, then he said "Wine, herbs, spices, oils, seafood, body paint, foie gras, gristle, truffles!"
Eight possessions that define you:
Jamie: My water bottle, glasses, my Britney CD, my 97 Camry
Renee: My wanna be 80s clothes, my Mac, my bungalow, Metallica - some kind of monster DVD ( I watch this every day for physiological guidance)
Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:
True Blood, Seinfeld , Mighty Boosh, Man Vs Wild, Game of Thrones, Taxi Driver, Labyrinth because it has Muppet's and Bowie.
Six bad habits you can't escape:
Renee: Biting nails, gambling, saying "new" like its spelt "nuuuuuuu"
Jamie: Being dirty, watching porn, cranking
Five people who inspire you:
Ayaan Hirisi Ali, Herman Hesse, Jeff Buckley, Josh and Guss (the two manly men in our band),
Four things that turn you on:
Jamie: My own body, the hair on my toes
Renee: Talent and knowledge
Three goals for your music:
We want to play Glastonbury, we want to play at some dirty millionaires cocktail party and we want to dance with Prince
Two live gigs you'll never forget and why:
Dirty Projectors cause it was fucking gooodddd and a '70s fusion cover band playing in Southern China to a bunch of Middle aged women.
One day left before the apocalypse and you…:
Probably just hang with family and friends sit around listening to the Beatles, get a rally car and fly down the Hume and conceive and give birth to my own child
When's the gig / release?
Riding Side Saddle, November 3 at The Prince.
