60 Seconds With… Husk


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
HUSK and I get to fondle the low end on bass.

What do you think people will say you sound like?
People say we sound like a lovely bunch of gentlemen who have kidnapped some sparkly vampires from twilight, wrapped them up in duffel bags, set up a recording mic and proceeded to beat the shit out of those gumby vampire dweebs….oh, and mix in a little Rage Against The Machine, Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, The Butterfly Effect, Porcupine Tree, Nirvana, King Crimson and Faith No More.

What do you love about making music?
I find the little things to be the most satisfying, like having the whole band set up in the lounge room and kicking out the jams while mum tries to watch The Bold And The Beautiful.

What do you hate about the music industry?
The industry is rather superficial and tends to cater for the lowest common denominator. Does HUSK feel a burden to rectify this cancerous evil? No. We wanna sell out, cash in and kiss every hairy arse in the hope that we can buy fancy coats and diamond incrusted iPhones. After all, no one cares about musical ability and integrity anymore right?

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
If I went back in time i wouldn’t embarrass myself by drooling over my musical hero. Instead I’d do what Biff Tannen did in Back To The Future Part II.

What can a punter expect from your live show?
They can expect to be inappropriately touched.

When are you playing live next and with who?
We will be at the Noise Bar on Saturday May 12 for a safari expedition with Redfield, Thrasher Jynx, Inedia and Fenian. Our last hunt turned out to be rather memorable, with our drummer getting his face mauled by a smart mouth hyena. Lucky drummers are at the back of the stage, so he doesn’t ruin our overall prettiness.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
We have an EP out called Contemplating Pupation and we also have  T-shirts available.

Anything else to add?
Soon HUSK will be crashing on your couch expecting full fridge privileges.
