q and also a :: MiniBoone

Craig, Taylor, James and Doug of MiniBoone sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of our q and also a series.

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

c: If I Ever Lose My Faith in You (youtube) by Sting. Sam (MiniBoone’s bassist) knows this because he watches my last.fm profile and notices that I like to put it on loop for 30 minutes at a time.

j: How to Rob (youtube) by 50 Cent


d: I’ve been listening to Katy On a Mission by Katy B a lot. Editor’s Note: if you really really want to listen to Doug’s song you should feel free to utilize the search capabilities of youtube.com.

q: What is your favorite beverage?

c: Lately I’ve been drinking kombucha, because I want to live forever.

t: Also, that sexy vitamin water, XXX.

d: I’ll say beer just so we have that covered.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

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

q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

c: Sometimes I like to pop by Forbidden Planet and read the Walking Dead comics until the employees kick me out.

j: The Keith Richards autobiography.

d: If Community can keep getting better I will be amazed and extremely pleased.

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

c: We’re touring down to SXSW this March with our freshly printed 7 inch single, The Other Summer, in hand. After that, we’re going to spend the rest of the spring & summer working on a full-length record, playing a few choice festivals, and wearing shorts sometimes.
