Kitsch - Kitsch Newsletter Interview 3

12 Sep 2009 // An interview by Shade
What can we expect to see from Kitsch over the next year?

For the last 18 months we have taken a break from live performance, spent alot of time building an arsenal of tracks, which we dissect in the practice room. The goal being to come out with a new animal. A new album. Hopefully gain a thousand new listeners. We plan to record 3 or 4 of the new tracks late 09, and release them free online as a lead into the next era & new album (planned early-mid 2010).

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

NOFX & Bad Religion at the Auckland Town Hall, Oct 4 2009, I do realise that’s in the future but it will be an experience. We have always wanted to play the Town Hall, so it seems even after a million years together we are still breaking new ground, achieving goals, etc etc.

What are your favourite NZ venues?

1 The Powerstation.

2 Valve in Wellington AKA Hole in the Wall

3 St. James Theatre (RIP)

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

Kitsch, because it’s been too long between drinks.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

The moment I realised I would actually have to remove the G-string I made from gaffer tape.

How do you describe your music?

PUNK ROCK PLUS!
I don’t really know actually.
POP ROCK maybe!

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

Attain the best gear you can possibly afford.
Keep your strings fresh.
F**k trends and do what you want.
Play until you’re a dinosaur.
Don’t eat meat!
