Fresh Fruit: Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt
Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt
What other names did you consider calling yourselves?
This was honestly the first and only name suggested for our band. Why would we consider anything else? Also, band name discussions suck, so it was easier to agree than having to try and think of an alternative.
Where are you from and what would be the most recognisable local landmark?
The band originated on the Central Coast of NSW. Two thirds of the bands have renounced their Coastal ways, but the most recognisable landmark would be One Dollar Short.
Who is in your band, what do they play and what is their non-musical superpower?
K – vocals: Wannabe Stand Up Comedian Man.
P – guitar: Make Your Head & Face Look Nice Man.
C – drums: Grows Stupid Facial Hair Man (needs to hang with P more).
Name your three biggest influences.
Music, nerd culture and silliness.
What’s the usual first topic of conversation when you take a break at rehearsal?
Our rehearsals tend to be more conversation based rather than practising our songs (much to our detriment). Conversation could range from the mundane, to the absolute absurd.
What’s your pre-show warm-up routine?
Making our setlists look pretty by adding pictures of Shaq, puppies or strong dads.
Tell us about your most memorable show.
We supported Frenzal Rhomb a few years back, and after we finished playing (read: crushed it) someone from the bewildered crowd yelled out, “YOU’VE RUINED MUSIC FOR ME!” – so that was clearly a show to remember.
What band would you most like to share the stage with and why?
Glassjaw. Why? Have you heard Glassjaw?!
What’s the most exciting album you’ve listened to recently?
The last album I bought was David Bowie’s Blackstar. It’s a pretty great album and final statement. Besides that, everything thing else I listen to is not new. Or exciting.
What is your latest release and why should we buy it?
We released a split 12″ with our buddies JXCKXLZ in 2014. You should buy it (via BandCamp) because of JXCKXLZ’s side. Our side is alright.
If you could be endorsed by one company, who would it be?
Why are you going to make it to the top over all the other contenders in the musical arena?
Being a realist, and as a member of a niche band with a ridiculous name that plays short, fast, crazy songs, it’s hard to imagine us reigning supreme over other musical contenders. Maybe our humbleness?!
Other than Dave Grohl, who has the best beard in rock?
Dave Grohl ain’t got nothing on ZZ Top. Those dudes must have necks like Henry Rollins from carrying those bad boys around their entire career.
