With a new single out (‘Girls Can Do Anything’), some MEGA parties planned for July and some ideas for album number two already being thrown around, Bleeding Knees Club are still very much on our radar. Drummer slash vocalist Alex Wall took some time out from partying to give us the answers to some very important questions.
Who? Alex Wall. What do you do? kill bitches with guns. City you call home? Gold Coast, Australia. The best thing about being you right now? I’m laying in my bed and it’s two in the afternoon and you have probably been in an office since 9am. Tea or coffee? Tea. Life changing record? American Graffiti Soundtrack. Dream collaboration? Blink 182. Or Dr Dre. What inspires you? Bongs. If not playing a gig where can we find you? Not telling you. I’m buying drinks, what’s your poison? Just a can of coke please. Best record right now? I just got the Tomorrows Tulips album. It’s pretty rad. One song to guarantee a private car sing-along? ‘Unfaithful’ by Rhianna. Childhood crush? Lizzy McGuire. Skrillex? Bats off to Skrillex. Roulette, cards, pokies – red or black? Chat Roulette. Which band would you die to play for, if not your own? Thee Oh Sees. They seem to have heaves of fun on stage. Favourite, quirky possession? Heaps of Dildos in every draw in my room. Scrunch or fold? Bidet. Guilty pleasure? Rom Coms. There’s a mini, five-band festival at yours, who’s playing? Thee Oh Sees, Total Slacker, Ty Segal, Harlem, Sonic Youth. Tell us one odd thing we don’t know? Mormons do this thing called Soaking. Google it. Two minute noodles, Mac & Cheese or baked beans on toast? Noodles. Worst. Movie. Ever? ohh I saw that Friends with Benefits movie on the plane. It sucked so much. You and the other half are breaking up, which one record do you fight for? I dunno about this question. It’s Christmas eve – Die Hard or Home Alone? Home Alone. What’s on your rider? Avocados and Coke. Most diva-like demand? Aww man I don’t really have any diva demands really. We are pretty easy going. Most embarrassing stage moment? I remember one show I went to jump into the crowd and i smashed my head on a beam as I jumped out. No one noticed it happened but which was cool. The world’s ending and Denzel Washington is no where in sight – what do you do? Instagram the end of the world. Favourite cafe anywhere? Piccolo on the Gold Coast. Favourite shower croon? I don’t like singing in the shower. But Jordan does all the time. When I grow up, I want to be….? A cage fighter. Song most likely to get you onto the dance floor? I have a no dance floor rule. It’s never a good idea. Favourite composition of your own? I just wrote a song for my other band Wax Witches called ‘Friend Zone’. It’s my favourite song of mine at the moment. One apprehension about your album? I wish someone else played drums on it. What are you doing after answering these questions? Washing all this spray paint off my body then going to play a show. When your baby, when your baby smiles at you, you go to….. Nar.
