Indietracks interview #22: Tunabunny
Interview by John Stanley.
Sitting on a carpet covered in paint and the sprawled out works of Julio Cortazar, Tunabunny has fallen down the rabbit hole and is begging you to follow, even as they doubt your own existence. Pop/rock music in the 21st century is a played-out corpse picked over by overprivileged boys and girls hoping to manufacture a personality for themselves out of something that other people think is cool. That is why Tunabunny thinks of pop/rock as something that should be destroyed, or at the very least subverted, but would probably be better for everyone involved if it simply ceased to exist. The members of Tunabunny are interested in revolution, which, contrary to popular thought, ceased to exist in the pop/rock world a long time ago, even as a latent impulse. As such, Tunabunny wonders just what it is doing here, and what exactly it hopes to accomplish.
Saw you guys play with Shrag in London and you did an extended free jazz bit at the end. Can we expect the same this time around?
We won't be playing with Shrag this time around. They've broken up.
There's a rumour there's going to be a hot tub at Indietracks this year? Are you getting in?
Depends on the weather.
What have you got in your pockets?
Trojans. Some of them used.
Do nuns have hair?
Never met one, but I can't see the point of shaving your legs everyday if nobody's going to see it under all those robes.
What's your personal best in the javelin?
Eight confirmed kills.
What shape would you shave a poodle into?
A hairless poodle covered in cuts & blood.
The Aztecs invented the camera. True or False?
False. Also, the Orange did not invent the juice and the Prefab did not invent the sprout.
If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?
You're going to have to work a bit harder than that, I'm afraid.
Tell us a knock knock joke.
You said you'd never forget.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
See you Saturday, Indietracks.
