Where are you?

In Interzona, a beautiful old celluloid smelling 1920's factory turned art space in Verona, Italy supporting the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Food for 20 Italian families is about ready.



What makes you mental?

- Glow-stick crucifixes
- A capella backstage jam sessions writing glam rock hits
- Crowds that party, Judah Bauer raps, guys whose name starts with M
- Stylophones and casiotones
- Friends all over Europe that give us a place to crash when DIY touring
- Going to an old Polish castle in the summer to record our first album

Do you love me?

Yes or no will never tell you that I do, words come easy baby and that's a thing that's true.

Best 60s German girl group band?

Manowar or Die Kolibris from East Germany...it's a draw.
