Delgirl Newsletter Interview
08 Oct 2007 // An interview by Shade
Delgirl are a three piece acoustic group from Dunedin and here are their answers to our interview questions:
What is your greatest achievement?
We are still hoping for world peace but in the meantime...We have just finished our first studio album " Two, maybe, three days Ride" It will be distributed by the lovely folk at Yellow Eye Music and also available from our website www.delgirl.co.nz
and myspace page www.myspace.com/delgirl
What do you think could be done to make NZ music even better?
Better than what? NZ music is doing really well right now we reckon, but there could be more Alt Hardcore Folk tho.
Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?
Eating and playing our way down the Breton Coast (France) or the North Island (New Zealand).
What is the best thing about making music?
Making people think about world peace AND it's fun and we get to go on paid trips to Riverton and Gore and have Scott Muir as manager.
What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?
Get a penis...no seriously, have fun, be yourself and keep the porn out of music.
Delgirl are a three piece acoustic group who do as much avoiding of definition as they can. “If you need to put us in a box musically, we play skiffily, folky, country, jazzy, bluesy music with a Pacific flavour!”
