ME: Is that how you’ve linked up with those guys [from Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Church, BRMC, etc] to be playing on your album, just by touring with them? Or is there some other story going on there?
SR: Well a lot of those guys we knew before…Aimee and I were touring overseas in other bands and the guys from Black Rebel and Brian Jonestown Massacre…and the Ravonettes we met through friends…but yeah, it’s mainly through friends or playing with them in the past and staying in contact. It’s nice that they asked us to play with them when they came out, I mean, our first gig was on the Black Rebel tour in Australia. When they asked us to do it, we didn’t even have a band to start with…[laughs]…I think we only had four songs, so we had to get our shit together pretty quick. It was a studio project, that’s how we dreamed it all up. We originally thought that we could play here and if we go overseas we could recruit some friends playing in other bands who happen to be on tour at the time…so yeah, we quickly grabbed a bunch of friends in this country, and we also had Wiki from Brian Jonestown staying with us, a big favour that he toured with us. It was good…we had to do it pretty quickly and of course we were very lucky that our first ever shows were pretty big shows…at the Corner Hotel you know.
