Most embarrassing moment on tour?
There is no embarresment on my tours only proud moments.

Give us a good quick ‘on the road’ story, funny, embarrassing, memorable, whatever…
played up in byron on new years day at the beats on the beach festival and hooked up with this chick dressed like a cat. She had the ears, tail and everything. I met her when she dived in my lap pilling off her chops while i was drunk off mine... i didn't have to do a thing, it was fantastic.

Your manager calls and says the venue you are about to play really wants to keep you happy, what’s the first thing you chuck on the rider?
his wife.

Whats getting the most spins in your stereo right now?

David bourkes 'lindelman chronicles', machine gun felatios ''bring it on'', Notorious b.i.g's ''life after death'' and lotsa motley crue.

Tell us a band or artist everyone should check out and why
David bourke, he has two very different styled albums out... ''emotions gemini'' is a great artie weirdoe pop art spastic album.. original as fuck, it sounds like nothing and if you don't have a record player don't even bother because he has only released it on record yet i bought a record player specifically to here it and wasn't disappointed. His other album ''The lindelman chronicles'' is a deep record with great songs hes a talented songwriter, artist and creative force 2 be reckoned with and most importantly honest, pure and real.

If you could change one thing about the music industry what would it be?
before bands do a photo shoot and record a demo and play a gig they should 1st learn the craft of songwriting, not just write the first 6 songs they have and play gigs thinking they are gonna change the world with their ignorance and lack of talent. Bands should first write 40 songs at least before they ever play live ever to spare audiences ears from amatuer crap. Learning the craft of songwriting before you play is the utmost most important thing a band can do before they ever even consider playing live, knowing whats a good song, a shit song, or a great song and being honest and 100 percent about your own material is so very very important and learning to get over the everything i do is the best attitude, there is always room for improvement and ego is fine but should only be implemented once you have earned it through hard work detemination and persistance, which is what takes a band from the ok catergory to the great category.

As soon as i've finished answering these questions i'm about to.....
read a book.
