q and also a :: Headless Elvis

Headless Elvis sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

peter: Thinning by Snail Mail – that whole EP is so great.

conor: Greyland by Tiny Hazard. That entire album, actually, is incredible

matt: Lost in The Flood by Bruce Springsteen. Good song with good sounds and good words.

q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?

p: Hard to know for sure but I think it was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Fever to Tell.

c: it’s so vague… but probably Room on Fire by The Strokes.

m: I got Rush’s first album a million years ago. They were the ugliest looking people I had ever seen at that point in my life (based on cd booklet pictures).

q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?

p: Buy by James Chance and The Contortions. It’s free jazz punk so I can always use more of that in my life.

c: A Place to Bury Strangers’ debut. I was 12…but I think it definitely would have opened me up to much more.

q: What is the last album that you purchased?

p: I got both Rock’n Hanukah and The Best of Blondie on cassette at the Thrift Store for like 50 cents. It was a pretty good deal.

c: I think I got Pissed Jeans’ first album for $1 at a record fair a few months back.

m: Probably something somewhere for a dollar.

q: What is your favorite memory of experiencing music in a live setting?

p: A Place To Bury Stranger at Aviv last October was the most sensory overload I have ever experienced in a show. It started with their usual strobes and smoke and ended in the back of the venue with lasers and a weird synth noise set. I left that show unable to speak for the rest of night. Thick also played that night and they were great as usual.

c: Peter and I actually took a trip to Baltimore to catch Dope Body before they broke up. Guerilla Toss opened for that one. The energy was wild.

m: Tie between Neil Young + Wilco opening and Pavement + Thee Oh Sees opening.

q: What should we know about “BADE”?

headless elvis: It’s 3:42 seconds long, it’s free, and you can’t dance to it!
