Charm School Rejects - Charm School Rejects Newsletter Interview

27 Apr 2008 // An interview by Shade
What is the best gig/event you have performed at, and why?

Probably our CD Release at Subnine or our 2008 kick off gig,we had a fairly big crowd at our CD release and everyone was so into it, it was awesome. We had great fun playing that gig

What is your favourite NZ venue?

The San Fransisco Bath House and at Subnine; we've had a few really good gigs at Subnine

What can we expect to see from the Charm School Rejects over the next year?

Um over the next year you can expect to see our new single 'Mr. Peanut Butter and His Jelly Fish Band' released, it may or may not make it onto radio. Also in the April school holidays we will be doing a tour over the North Island, starting in Wellington then going to Masterton, Wanganui, Hamilton and Auckland and hopefully a second EP

What other NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

I would definitely like to see more of Little Bushman, Odessa and Autozamm. Odessa are so good live it's insane and Autozamm are kick ass

If you could, what rumour would you start about yourselves?

That Barry is so far in the closet he's having adventures in Narnia!

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

Don't let anyone put you off, the thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.

Also, nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
