Q&A: Serial Killer Smile
Define your genre in five words or less:
Progressive alternative rock.
What do you love about making music?
Freedom of artistic expression without the constraints of being responsible to anyone but yourselves for the end result.
What do you hate about the music industry?
I'd like to quote Hunter Thompson on this one: “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
What can a punter expect from your live show?
Groove, melody and volume.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
New EP entitled The Elephant In The Room available at the shows and online through Firestarter Distribution.
When’s the gig and with who?
The Prague, Friday October 19 with Sydonia and Decortica (NZ) then Creepshow Halloween Festival at The Espy on Saturday October 20 with Engine Three Seven, Over-Reactor, The Khyber Belt and more rad bands than you can poke a stick at!
What inspires or has influenced your music the most?
For us it's the musicians around us. Australian artists that are real, accessible people that you can see at your local music venues & chat to after a show.
If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be, and why?
I think we'd be a Picnic Bar, kinda rough to look at but with lots of complex flavours that stimulate and tickle your palate. Oh and it has nuts. Big chunky nuts.
Catch Perth's SERIAL KILLER SMILE when they head to Melbourne as part of the massive Creepshow Halloween Festival at The Espy on Saturday October 20. Also playing Friday October 19 at The Prague with Sydonia and Decortica (NZ).
