7 Silly Questions w/ Wet Nurse!

I first met Wet Nurse at a show in Charlotte, NC at the World Famous Milestone Club. They were on tour for their 2012 release Daily Whatever. I was smitten immediately. I mean where else are you going to find an all female garage pop band fronted by identical twins and powered by a ridiculously rockin' dynamo of a drummer? That's what I thought.  

I caught up with the charming trio of Nina Chaplin, Susana Chaplin, and Vanessa Brewster at their homes in Orlando, FL via the interwebs. Thankfully they were willing to take a few moments to answer our highly dubious questions!

What's the most embarrassing band you loved as a kid?
Vanessa: Terrible pop fan. S Club 7.

What is the first record you bought?
Nina: Daft Punk - Discovery

Unicorns vs. Narwhals? Who would win in a fight?
Susana: Narwhal, dude. If it got that bitch in the water that unicorn wouldn't stand a chance!
Nina: Well one's land and ones water... So where would this fight be happening?
Susana: Well Unicorns also have special powers... So...
Nina: It's a tie.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you on the road?
Nina: We almost stayed on a hardwood floor next to a dude in a Mexican wrestler mask passed out next to his blindfolded girlfriend. Yeah, Alabama's weird. And no. We didn't stay there.

Who has the worst van etiquette?
Susana: Me I have clothesplosion!
Vanessa: Soooo many shoeeees...

Who is in heavy rotation on your iPod?
Susana: We just listen to mix CDs people make us.

What is the worst fight over nothing that you got into with each other after being road weary and exhausted?
Vanessa: Fights over food, feminism and too much whiskey get us in trouble a lot! We fight like sisters though so it may look like we're about to rip each others faces off but we're really just blowing off steam.

7 Silly Questions w/ Total Warr!

French duo Total Warr make me happy. Every single time I listen to their infectious, happy electronic pop it is a pleasant diversion from the overly serious nature of American indie rock. Our musicians could learn a lot from from Kiki and Guigui about how to have fun while still making amazing music.

Total Warr has been exceptionally busy as of late. Between getting their latest EP Loisy ready for release and collaborating with Japanther on the fantastic track "Outside It Looks Like Snow," we are surprised that they had any time to sit down and answer our questions. Thankfully they were able to take a couple of moments and reveal at least one highly entertaining secret! Check out the Sleeping Guigui Tumblr page linked below!

What's the most embarrassing band you loved as a kid?
Kiki : East 17
Guigui : Coal Chamber

What is the first record you bought?
Kiki : Queen - Greatest Hits
Guigui : AC/DC - Ball Breaker

Unicorns vs. Narwhals? Who would win in a fight? 
Kiki and Guigui: Unicorns

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you on the road?
Kiki : Taking pictures of Guigui sleeping all the time!

Who smells the worst in the van after a show? 
Kiki and Guigui: We smell like flowers all the time.

Who is in heavy rotation on your iPod? 
Kiki : Daft Punk, Smashing Pumpkins, Chromatics
Guigui : Guilty Simpson, Elvis Costello, Hate Eternal

What is the worst fight over nothing that you got into with each other after being road weary and exhausted?
Kiki and Guigui : We never fight cause we never talk. We hate each other.
