Fresh Fruit: Sweater Season
What other names did you consider calling yourselves?
We didn’t consider anything else… This is the only one that wasn’t taken.
Where are you from and what would be the most recognisable local landmark?
We’re from Sydney and Blackwire Records is the most recognisable landmark, thanks to ZK Photo.
Who is in your band, what do they play and what is their non-musical superpower?
Jacob Rossi – Guitar/Vocals.
Dylan Farrugia – Guitar/Vocals.
Dave Parker – Bass.
Luke Rogers – Drums. None of us have superpowers of any kind. We are just regular human beings that have regular human problems and do regular human things.
Name your three biggest influences.
Carb on Carb, HANNAHBAND, and Ben Rivers.
What’s the usual first topic of conversation when you take a break at rehearsal?
To go outside for a ciggie, or not to go outside for a ciggie.
What’s your pre-show warm-up routine?
We all put our brave faces on and try not to let all our friends see how nervous we actually are.
Tell us about your most memorable show.
Every show we have played at Blackwire Records and Beatdisc Records have been the most memorable shows. Opening for Tigers Jaw was pretty cool, too.
What band would you most like to share the stage with and why?
Milhouse, because it would just be such a fun time.
What’s the most exciting album you’ve listened to recently?
We haven’t listened to it, but the new Make More album is already the most exciting.
What is your latest release and why should we buy it?
Our self-titled EP is our first and only release, and you can download it for free on BandCamp. So instead of buying our record, you should buy a Ted Danson With Wolves record, a HANNAHBAND record, a Pinch Hitter record, or the new Burlap record.
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?
We probably aren’t going to.
Other than Dave Drayton, who has the best beard in rock?
