Amy Racecar - Amy Racecar Newsletter Interview

03 Oct 2005 // An interview by Shade
Which NZ artist/band do you think will be a huge international success one day?

We feel the Finn Brothers have a good way with a lyric and a melody. There is a good chance they may find an audience outside of this country.

Who would you most like to tour with?

We're all big fans of the Pakeha Maori Club.

What is your most embarrassing concert moment?

Every gig offers a wealth of embarrassment for us. Probably the fact that we all hate each other and should have broken up last year affects our performances dramatically.

What are you planning on doing during 2005?

Drink blood and sacrifice virgins to menobaal.

How did you come up with the name Amy Racecar?

One night when Billy was crying himself to sleep he saw it written in the stars.

What is in your CD collection at home?

We dont listen to CDs, only tapes. In particular we are quite fond of soundtracks to old genre films.

What advice would you give other budding musicians/bands?

Give up. Quit. Whatever you are doing is as actually as bad as you think it is. There is no hope for you here in NZ and you will never be embraced beyond your immediate family and the several 16 year old girls you met on myspace.

About Amy Racecar

Amy Racecar originally formed in Napier in the year of our lord, 2001. Over 5 years and 20 band members later, they have released three EPs, two albums, played a few shows and conducted many rituals involving the black arts.

Describing their musical output as 'pop music with other bits', Amy Racecar have never been shy of embracing or destroying any musical genre that has come to hand.

"Acerbic modern rock seen on current stages as well as unparalleled oddities." - Real Groove Magazine
