Kujo Kings

Ten bands everyone should know about:

The Mad Caddies, Streetlight Manifesto, Sublime, The Bennies, Anarchist Duck, Graveyard Train, Chris Duke and the Royals, Big D And The Kids Table, Los Capitanes, Babylon Circus.

Nine food items that you need to make a kickarse dinner party:

Beer, wine, spirits, mead, ice cream, chicken pesto, chutney, more beer.

Eight possessions that define you:

Fluffy animal onesies, crazy tights, chucks, creepers, nerf guns, yo-yo’s (especially when used out the window of a moving car), guitars and horns.

Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:

Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure, The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Baseketball, Dora The Explorer: Meet Diego!, The Lion King and The Show Must Go Off – Reel Big Fish.

Six bad habits you can’t escape:

Turning every word starting with a ‘k’ into an alliteration, aka making Kujo Kalls, limiting our dance moves to skanking, even when at non-ska gigs.

Using Kujo Kash to get to The Bennies’ gigs.

Using too much of our own cash on YoYos and silly costumes.

Using rehearsal time to shoot Nerf Guns at each other.

Taking our clothes off at gigs.

Five people who inspire you:

Iron Maiden, for jumping around like they’re still in their 20s

Ellie, for blowing her own bone for money

Monky, for supplying the candy

Hughie (our drummer), for being the classic “band nerd” of the group with his long ‘ rockstar’ hair, fairly vacant expression (seemingly from drug abuse) and perfect pitch.

Yogi, for tattooing our logo on his neck!

Four things that turn you on:

Offbeats

Beatoffs

Kujo Kuddles

Wenches

Three goals for your music:

1. Write more songs that inspire Kujo Kuddling

2. Play a ska cover of a song from every genre

3. Get ALL the bitches

But seriously, we just wanna have fun… no bullshit lol!

Two live gigs you’ll never forget and why:

Reel Big Fish, Billboards, December 4 2010.

We snuck backstage after everyone got kicked out of the venue. It was really great to meet the guys since we were bummed we didn’t support. They said they’d support us next time; we’re not sure whether to believe it or not.

Alestorm, Corner Hotel, June 19 2010.

We went there as a band and were finally able to share our love of pirates with a room full of people.

One day left before the apocalypse and you…:

Grab my adequately prepared zombie survival kit from under my bed and head straight to my safe house in an undisclosed location whilst laughing at all the ill prepared individuals roaming around like zombies…

When’s the gig / release?
