q and also a :: Deadbeat Club
Hampshire College postpunk outfit Deadbeat Club sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
Daniella Doom: Rid of Me by PJ Harvey.
Edie Von Slayer: These kinds of questions are always hard. I just always have a bunch of songs that circulate in my mind and there’s no order to them really. We listen to songs together too. Like Babes in Toyland and Cat Power. So I guess I’ll say Spun and Good Clean Fun.
Mandy Coxx: Summer Feeling by Jonathan Richman. I’ve got the post-summer blues.
Lilian Filth: Both of the songs that are on John Frusciante’s Estrus EP.
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?
Daniella Doom: Beyonce Crazy in Love
Edie Von Slayer: Also a tough one. I really remember loving The Cranberries when I was younger. But I guess if I’m being really honest, the first album I begged my parents to buy was most definitely Let Go, Avril Lavigne.
Mandy Coxx: Yeah I also think it was Avril’s Let Go, or it might of been Shakira’s Laundry Service.
Lilian Filth: I remember buying Gwen Stefani’s Love, Angel, Music, Baby with my own money at Target when I was little.
q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?
Daniella Doom: Not really, I always appreciate the timing of when I hear an album I love. I wouldn’t want it to be old and boring to me.
Lilian Filth: Yes. There always is.
q: What is the last album that you purchased?
Daniella Doom: Collective Sigh by Pinkwash.
Edie Von Slayer: I acquired a bunch of CDs recently, $1 each at a library sale. It was so sick. I got the Twin Peaks soundtrack, a Kate Bush CD, a Garbage CD and more.
Mandy Coxx: Holyoke by Rabbit Rabbit (local favorite).
Lilian Filth: Yr Body is Nothing by Boy Harsher. Really good album.
q: What is your favorite memory of experiencing music in a live setting?
Daniella Doom: Britney Spears live
Edie Von Slayer: There’s too much for this question. I did recently get to see PJ Harvey in concert which fulfilled a dream in me. She was really good. I wish that I could have seen her in concert for any of her first 4 albums. The Breeders was also one of my favorite concerts ever. But I do hate those big crowded venues. I like playing DIY shows with bands that we play with and being able to make new friends.
Lilian Filth: I like to go to the shows my friends play…
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
Black Lives Matter.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
We’re excited for our EP release through Mirror Universe Tapes (October 1st) and our winter tour starting mid December!! We want to call it “Deadbeat Club Escapes the Western Mass Winter Tour” and go south and then west up the coast.
