This Epic Tour: Kingswood Vs Money For Rope Vs Damn Terran
Money For Rope ask Kingswood:
1. If there was a god, which member in your band would he replace?
Firstly, you never know – we could be super religious, in which case we would be offended by your question. Maybe the B side to our single Yeah Go Die is called Oh Wait, He's Alive. (It's also on our Easter Miracle EP, with guest vocals from 'the' Chad Kroeger). You also assume that this god... sorry it's 'God' actually, is a male. Maybe God is a sweet babe who gave us all life? In this case she would also play drums so she would have toned arms, which is everyone's favourite. She would replace Justin, who would remain a part of the group as a lights/merch guy, in turn replacing cousin Jimmy, who would then get back on the heroin for two years until he finds God...... So, just to be clear, it would be Justin.
2. Two cars are travelling in opposite directions at approx 100kmh, how many beers will Money For Rope steal from your rider?
Being in the epic tour wagon travelling at 100kmph and realising that our rider was raided the night before, we wave down the car heading in the opposite direction and say "Hey, you guys want some cheap musical equipment? It was once used by Money For Rope."
Kingswood ask Damn Terran:
1. Do you have to be depressed to write a sad song? Do you have to be in love to write a love song? Is a song better if it actually happened to you? Like Rebels, where did you write it, and what is it about?
Good question. If you can empathise with people and have a good imagination then I'm sure you can write authentic songs about love, depression, or whatever. As for whether songs are better if they actually happen, I kinda hope it's not necessary. The prospect that some of Frank Zappa's tunes are based on real events is disturbing – Why Does It Hurt When I Pee and Dynamo Hum are good examples.
Our latest single Rebels was born out of frustration with mainstream climate change campaigning in Australia. The most influential and well-resourced environment groups were willing to 'say yes' to whatever the government was offering, despite the yawning gulf between what was on the table and what is needed to address climate change. The band collaborated on the lyrics based on that critique.
2. Do you think there will ever be a boy born that can swim faster than a shark?
If humans perfect and embrace genetic engineering then it's a possibility.
Damn Terran ask Money For Rope:
1. Tell me about Misery Lane. Who's been breakin' your hearts?
Everyone's been breaking our hearts. I go down the street, I'm like, "200 grams of honey leg ham thanks." She says, "Sorry hun, not today." I go, "How 'bout the chicken breast?" She's like, "Sorry hun, not today. Any thigh?" "Sorry luv, deli's closed." I go back tomorrow.
2. Word on the street is that you guys have an album in the works... Give us every little detail!
You have your ear to the ground. Look out! There's a bus coming! But yeah, I think it'll be coming out independently this September.
KINGSWOOD, MONEY FOR ROPE and DAMN TERRAN take This Epic Tour to The Workers Club for two explosive rock-filled nights this Thursday June 28 and Friday June 29. Get amongst it.
