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?
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.
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)?
a: We’re recording our first album. It’s the first time Shark? songs have been recorded as a band as opposed to just my fucking around on my own.
Here are a few Shark? songs.
But know what? you should totally just download their EPs for free @ Bandcamp.
