Brutally Frank - Brutally Frank Newsletter Interview

25 Apr 2006 // An interview by Shade
Brutally Frank are an Auckland based rock band. Thanks to Jeremy (vocals) for sorting out the answers to our questions!

Who are your favourite NZ bands and artists?

HDU, Shihad , Weta , Probe Sky, The Tuesdays, Goldenhorse, Straitjacket Fits

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Used to be the Powerstation, I’d say now the Studio or the Kings Arms – anywhere that’s got a big stage.

What is the best thing about being in Brutally Frank?

The closeness of the band, really we are like brothers more than mates. Not to mention our live show, which just quietly is a must see.

What is the best live gig you have ever been to?

Probably the first time I ever saw HDU play, at the Mandalay in Newmarket, closely rivalled by Tool at The North Shore Events Centre (the 1st time they played there) (or Alice Cooper at the Supertop – first concert ever)

Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

A little bit fatter with a little less hair – and we’ll be on our fourth album by then as well!!

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

We ring them on Mothers day.

What rumour would you like to start about yourselves?

That we are all unrivalled in the trouser department and move like Elvis.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Stay off drugs, see a dentist, and never lick a steak knife.
