Q&A: Plastic Spaceman
If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it be and why?
It would have to be The Rivingtons who sang The Bird’s The Word. We believe that world peace may have been a possibility without the intrusion of one of the most important and devastating questions of all time, haven’t you heard?
When’s the gig and with who?
We will be playing The Brunswick Hotel on Saturday August 11 with The Ivory Elephant, The Cornish Arms on Saturday August 18 with The Vendettas, there’s a little road trip up to Morwell in November and although we are not releasing any names as of yet, we have created a charity event at The Tote on Sunday October 14 with some of the biggest bands in Melbourne. Keep an eye out, this one is going to be huge!
So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you... what do they say?
How hot is that drummer! Ha ha. Seriously, not joking. And no more questions regarding if she is taken, get some balls and ask her yourself you cowards.
What inspires or has influenced your music the most?
Chicks, more specifically Jamie’s chicks!
Why should everyone come and see your band?
We use up the entire stage and jump off of it regularly, the music has a groove to it which has gotten people up and dancing at every gig we have done! We rock it hard and appeal to most demographics.
Tell us about the last song you wrote.
It’s called My Valentine and is proving to be the best track yet. Most of the songs till this point have seen the vocalist screaming out loud about how much of a bitch his ex was, so this is a refreshing change. It’s a song about being lost, insecure and waiting to be saved.
If someone made a movie about your life, who would play you?
I think David Hasselhoff would have to play each one of us, even Lucy. That man can do anything!
How do you stop your pre-gig jitters?
Beer. Rhough Scotch for Russ ‘cos he’s fancy.
Anything else to add?
3 + 1.
