60 Seconds With… Destroy She Said


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
I’m Youngy, the guitarist in Destroy She Said.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, The Angels, and Soundgarden, with an original modern twist. It’s over the top pub rock! 

What do you love about making music?
Creating something out of nothing. It’s like a guy’s version of giving birth. We have lots of little monsters now!

What do you hate about the music industry?
We hate lots of the music, and lots of the industry.

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
Probably John Lennon. John was pretty funny, so I think he’d appreciate the dirty humour.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?
Deni Hines? Sorry you mean popular music don’t you, um The Eagles need to be stopped. They are pure evil, and their songs are too bloody nice!

What can a punter expect from your live show?
Honesty, we are real and I think people pick up on that. It’s also loud and in your face with songs that kick your arse.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
The current EP
Music For Muscle Cars, and some copies of our self-titled debut. Both are available from www.destroyshesaid.com.au, on iTunes worldwide, or at our shows.

When’s the gig and with who?
Cherry Bar Saturday February 25, with The Deep End, and Home To Kelly.

Anything else to add?
Come down if you like rock ‘n ‘ roll that punches you in the face!
