Delgirl - 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.
 

About Delgirl

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!”

Double Bass, Guitar, Percussion, Trumpet, Ukulele and Banjo all get a look in, accompanied by three of the sweetest voices you are likely to hear this side of the black Shag.

They have been playing together since 2000, having played at various events and venues in NZ - from the Inch Bar in Dunedin to the Wunderbar in Christchurch (check out “Delgirl - Live At The Wunderbar” EP ) and many, many, other gigs in between. They were guests at the Whitestone Folk Festival 2005 and the Whare Flat Folk Festival 2006.
