Getting To Know: NO

OUR BAND’S SPIRIT ANIMAL


Part Bill Murray, part Keith Richards.

 

OUR LEAST FAVORITE THING IN THE UNIVERSE IS


Posing for photographs.  SEAN STENTZ

 

ON THE ROAD 


Crossing the Swiss Alps during a snowstorm. To survive and rise over the top just to have it clear up on our way down…breathtaking.  SEAN STENTZ

 

 

WORST SHOW EVER


I wont go into details, but we once got told that we'd never play in Pasadena ever again...  BRADLEY CARTER

 

BEST SHOW EVER


In Barcelona on the Father John Misty tour... It was my first time ever in Spain, and the FJM crowd treated us as if we were their own... Mid-show some guy even jumped on the lighting board and just took it over, it just all became... And we loved it!  BRADLEY CARTER

 

DREAM COLLABORATION


I would love to do a show one day with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, and a massive choir. We have experimented with our own Echo Park Community choir of 12 to 15 strapping young lads, and it feels so exciting when everything gets going on stage that it makes me want to do it more and more.  BRADLEY CARTER

 

Geoff Barrow.  SEAN STENTZ

 

WE’LL KNOW WE’VE MADE IT WHEN…


When Time Warner Cable stops sending me debt collection notices…  BRADLEY CARTER

 

People stop confusing us with another band in LA who call themselves by our name.  SEAN STENTZ
