The Count With… Lan Party



Trent Never Existed / Lan Party

Ten bands everyone should know about:

Tim McMillan Band, Xenograft, Ennis Tola, A Lonely Crowd, Fritzwicky, Sex On Toast , Mandek Penha, Umlaut, Chico Flash, The Rolling Stones.

Nine food items that you need to make a kickarse dinner party:

Broad-faced potoroo, Eastern hare wallaby, thylacine, sesert bandicoot, lesser bilby, dodo, tule shrew, red gazelle and tofu.

Eight possessions that define you:

The bones of Joseph Merrick, No.5, 1948 by Jackson Pollock, The Gutenberg Bible, four 1903 Imperial Fabergé Eggs, my iPhone.

Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:

The sheer file size of a movie or TV show indicates you could not fit seven of these onto a single cassette tape.

Six bad habits you can’t escape:

Being sarcastic in street press Q&As, not being able to count to six.

Five people who inspire you:

Robert Greene, Andy Kaufman, Earthworm Jim, David Lynch, Kanye West.

Four things that turn you on:

That’s a bit personal, Beat magzine.

Three goals for your music:

Burn more money, get less recognition, write a book.

Two live gigs you’ll never forget and why:

The first Lan Party show late 2004 at Manchester Lane, because I scared sit down dinner jazz enthusiasts with my banter. The 50th Lan Party show at the Vineyard 2007, because we fired cap guns at De La Soul and meth head security guards attempted to fight us.

One day left before the apocalypse and you…:

Release Lan Party’s final EP Lan Party Never Existed.

When’s the gig / release?

This Friday December 23 at the Evelyn with A Lonely Crowd, White Cell and Chico Flash for the Lan Party Never Existed EP Launch.
