Define your genre in five words or less:

Pop, fuzz, sad, slide, footstare.


Describe the worst gig you've ever played.

We played in front of two very strange people in Wollongong a day after our album release. One of them did a bizarre wolf whistle/mating call before every song while the other coldly stared at us. We drank shots of tequila mid set and sang a cover of Sweet Jane with Aaron Curnow from our label Spunk Records. During our last song some projectionist started playing hardcore pornography behind us, leading to everyone feeling uncomfortable. We packed up, drove home, and never spoke of it again.


Describe the best gig you've ever played.

See above.


Do you have a pre-gig ritual?

Scouring whatever town we are in for a park to drink long necks with local town folk/murderers.


What can a punter expect from your live show?

A guitar band that WON'T kidnap and kill you.


What have you got to sell CD wise?

Bill, Dance, Shiner. It has the singles Angeline and Over The Hill


When's the gig and with who?

At The Gasometer Hotel with Iowa on Friday August 31.
