Freaky Meat - Freaky Meat Newsletter Interview

05 Nov 2011 // An interview by Shade

What can we expect to see from Freaky Meat over the next year?

More of us live with fresh material. This year we released our first album and will have completed our first tour. We intent to expand and extend the Meat closer to your door-step where ever you may be.

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

Surround yourself with good muso's and mates and be very very patient... be prepared to work hard and try to have as much fun as you can.

What will Freaky Meat's next release be?

The next album will be flavoursome and full of variety like the first. We've been testing a few on audiences already and had some good reactions which is pleasing.. and saves so much time 'explaining' to the audience why they should bloody well like it.

Who would you most like to support live?

Tom Waits or Lou Reed.

How do you believe Freaky Meat fits into the NZ music industry?

A bit like square pegs into round holes. We dance around the outside and poke sticks at it.

What can you never leave home without?

MY FREEDOM... but probably the house keys more so.

How do you describe Freaky Meat's music?

Well Graham Reid said we sounded like Head Like A Hole with Sam Hunt, yeah I think he might have got something there.

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

Well we love playing with The Neo Kalashnikovs. Volita writes songs that are so fantastic and so simple I always rub my head and wonder why anyone hasn't thought of them before, they are pure kick ass rock and roll. Also Drop Dead Redhead are brilliant.

 

About Freaky Meat
