Blunt - - Upfront -

What other names did you con­sider

call­ing your­selves? The Flam­ing Surfer Dudes, HateFish, 420 Su­per Reefer, SharkFight and The

Holy Mani-axe.

We’re from the north­ern sub­urbs of Mel­bourne and for us it’s prob­a­bly Su­per Tasty Rooster. They do the best chips and gravy and you can get the phat­test chicken schnitzel burger for only $7. It’s got like,

three schnitzels in it. Where are you from and what would be the most recog­nis­able lo­cal land­mark? Who is in your band, what do they play and what is their non-mu­si­cal su­per­power? Dan McDon­ald (gui­tar, heaps good at not lit­ter­ing); Himi Stringer (bass, vo­cals, also heaps good at lit­ter­ing); Mike Haru­tyun­yan (gui­tar, vo­cals, heaps good at run­ning); Nick

Cron (plays the drums like the BFG).

Name your three big­gest in­flu­ences. Slayer, The Con­gos, and The Dan

Har­ris Ex­plo­sion.

“Oi Nick, give us a cig­gie, brother.”

Tell us about your most mem­o­rable show. We played with Sleep at The Cor­ner Ho­tel, which is un­doubt­edly any doom dude’s

dream. It was sick. What band would you most like to share

the stage with? Lynyrd Skynyrd and Horsehunter do a Me­gadeth-col­lab cover night… ’Nuff said What is your lat­est re­lease and why

should we buy it? Our LP Caged In Flesh and you should buy it

‘cos it’s heaps sick and we’re heaps poor. If you could be en­dorsed by one com­pany,

who would it be?

What’s the usual first topic of con­ver­sa­tion when you take a break

at re­hearsal? Horsehunter loves Nippy’s Iced Choco­late and have al­ways dreamed of a Nippy’s spon­sor­ship of some kind. Ain’t nothin’ soothes like a lit­tle sippy of some Nippy’s.

Why are you go­ing to make it to the top over all the other con­tenders in the

mu­si­cal arena? Well, with the power of Nippy’s on our side,

any­thing is pos­si­ble.
