Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
A psych-funkadelic-folktronic-auralgasm. But they might have trouble pronouncing that. It’s a bit different to your usual rock line-up, with a saucy horn section of flute and sax, some intoxicating guitar work and some squelchy synth tones, with a bearded man roaring over the top of it all.
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
Somebody from a different era who would be impressed purely by our use of electricity. An easy crowd, really.
What inspires or has influenced your music the most?
Anal sex, beer, the Beatles, Melbourne’s musicians and vaginal sex also. Just to clarify.
Describe the best gig you have ever played.
The Little Buckley Festival would definitely be up there. It always hosts a bevvy of beautiful people, an incredible vibe and some amazing artists. That’s our cup of coffee. We’ll be there again this October 27 – 28. It’s a festival really worth checking out.
Tell us about the last song you wrote.
The night we got home from recording our debut EP in Wagga we began writing the tracks for the second EP before even hearing the masters of the first record. I think we got a little excited, but we now have the next round sorted. The debut EP ETC will be launching in early November. The Lamas can’t wait to release this record, it’s the brand new line up with new tracks that really showcase the band’s unique sound.
Name an interview question you wish someone would ask you, and answer it.
Q: “Why is your music so effortlessly brilliant?” A: “Well, I wouldn’t put it THAT way…”
When’s the gig and with who?
We’ll be playing this Thursday August 2 at Bar Open with our funky friends Better Than The Wizards and the quirky Domini Forster and her travelling ukulele. It’s free entry and everything! We’ll be debuting our brand new sound and also our audiovisual team’s antics! Bring your 3D goggles kids.
