q and also a :: Shark?

This q and also a features the answers of blogger turned rocker Kevin Diamond the singer/guitarist/keyboardist of Shark?.

q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

a: A Crime (mp3) by Carnivores. We just played with them and Dinosaur Feathers at Cake Shop last night and they blew me away. A Crime is their catchiest tune, though Organ Trail is probably my favorite so far. I just got it this morning and I’ve listened to the album three times today

q: What is your favorite food?

a: Anything Mexican. Anything involving Cheese and Beef and Beans and Tortillas. And hot sauce. And no napkins.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

a: ugh. I dunno. Really tough question. Gang of Four kind of killed it, smashing a microwave with a wooden bat. Actually, Liars put on a really great show at the Pool Parties a couple years ago. Also, there’s a bunch of local bands I really love seeing live: Sundelles, I’m Turning Into.

Second Life (Version 2) (mp3) by Gang of Four
Plaster Casts Of Everything (mp3) by Liars
Your Favorite Thing (mp3) by The Sundelles
Chin (mp3) by I’m Turning Into

q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?

a: I really enjoyed playing Silent Barn.

q: OK, President Obama appoints you as the first Secretary of Culture, to whom do you give your first grant?

a: Brian Eno.

Listen: Baby’s On Fire (mp3)

q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
