60 seconds with MAMMOTH MAMMOTH...

Mammoth Mammoth in this weeks Beat Magazine.


Unedited version 60 seconds with Bones!

Q: So then, what’s the band name and what you ‘do’ in the band?
A: We're MAMMOTH MAMMOTH.
My role is make to sure our singer, Mikey doesn’t wreck too much shit at gigs and rack up a bill the size of the national deficit - then I drive him home. On top of that I do a bit of drumming.

Q: Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
A: Motorhead and AC/DC doing mushrooms with The Butthole Surfers, channelling the Birthday Party at a Black Sabbath concert with the sound of a thousand Unicorns screaming for mercy in the background!

Q: Full on. What's the best bit?
A: Watching Cuz pull his big-hairy-girly-moves and sex-faces on stage; and Mikey strangling himself with the mic cord while simultaneously demolishing our whole rider.

Q: What do you hate about the music industry?
A: They never send us Christmas cards

Q: If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
A: I’d audition for the Runaways, Sandy West (RIP) was good but I too look hot in high-waited, skin tight flairs and make up.

Q: If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?
A: I’d opt to set fire to Short Stak!
All that hair product would go up like a fucking box of crackers in a napalm attack. Just the spectacle itself would be well worth it.

Q: What can a punter expect from your live show?
A: Brain damage. Spontaneous combustion. Hardening of the sphincter and Enlightenment - or all the above.

Q: What you got to sell CD-wise?’
A: Zero. Both our CDs are sold out. That is unless you go to itunes store.
Our new DOUBLE EP, titled ‘MAMMOTH & MAMMOTH’, should be out around the middle of next year though.

Q: What happening next for MAMMOTH MAMOTH?
A: The Prague, Fri Aug 12. With Muscle Car, Thrill Killers, Boozer, The Feel Goods and White Veins and The Espy, Fri Aug 26. With The Hard-Ons and Don Fernando

Q: Anything else to add?
A: These are our first shows since we lost our original bass player to a nudist romping-peyote popping cult in South America, so we strongly recommend you call your lawyer, rob your dealer and come and worship getting fucked up in his honour.
