Yacht Club DJs

Yacht Club DJs

We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files, however we don’t like regurgitating press releases or asking the easy questions. No-one gets out of the Tone Deaf Interrogation lightly, so just hold still, grit your teeth, clench your buttocks and be still while we put on the rubber gloves, apply the thumbscrews, and pull out our thermometer while you open up and say ahhhhhhhhhhh… Truthful answers only or we drink your rider while you’re on stage.

Everyone joins or forms a band to get laid. If your band represents your sex life are you Casanova or spending plenty of time doing the five knuckle shuffle?

Yacht Club DJs is a Five knuckle shuffle if I can find a cupboard. But forsaking any cupboards we are probably the guy with dicks drawn on his face passed out in the bath at the end of the night getting kissed by your drunk aunty.

We don’t want to know about the painfully hip bands your press release says you’re influenced by. Take us back to your bedroom when you were 14. What band posters did you have on the wall?

Frenzal Rhomb and Pantera featured heavily, White Zombie from memory too.

What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?

We played a show that involved a rotating crowd, so we did something like 8 sets over 6 hours. The whole time we were sculling bottle after bottle of cheap “sham-pain” and wearing as much fake bling as we could carry out of the costume shop. I ended up falling asleep on stage and guy spewed, bad part is I think there is a youtube video of it somewhere.

Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it?

We find an Irish pub and buy a shot of tulley and a guinness, then we talk shit about the old country.

We’ve been looking in the $2 bin at Dixons Recycled and also bidding on eBay – what releases are we looking for there that your band has put out?

We did a limited pressing of our last mix tape, Kleptomania, that we gave away for free at shows. It was available for free download as well, but for some reason random people have been selling the hard copies on eBay and making a killing. So I guess that, and maybe soon our new mix tape, Demons of Gymnastics.

Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?

Definitely Muz (Daniel “Bolt Speedman” Marie), from HOWL. I’ve seen him naked enough I might as well kiss him.
