We spend a couple of minutes with MAMMOTH MAMMOTH ahead of their support slot for Sleep at The Corner Hotel on Sunday December 7th.

What’s going on in the world of MAMMOTH MAMMOTH?
Bones: We’ve been pretty slack really, apart from writing and recording a new album this year. Jason PC (Blood Duster) produced it for us again, but he was building his new studio and kept asking us if we had any trade skills? Which of course we fucking absolutely do not. He kept trying to get us to stick up plaster and shit, and nail things. Anyway, the album is launching next January.
When we got through that, we toured here with John Garcia. Which was a bit of an honour. But mostly we’ve been slacking off.
And Pete bought a new motorbike.

What motivates you to make music?
Bones: Large women. Boredom. Punching each other. Pleasing Satan.
Cuz: Jim Beam and BBQ Shapes.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Bones: Not losing Mikey on our recent Europe tour was a major achievement. He lost all his clothes somewhere, but not himself, amazing! Cuz lost his virginity again.
Cuz: Our first show in Hamburg — to our surprise we sold the venue out.
It’s nice knowing that we have a shitload of fans in Germany. We are like David Hasselhoff.
Bones: True, that tour was a highlight, we played some great venues and cities to fans we didn’t know we had. Also, having our first EP and albums re-released in Europe and the USA etc was grouse too. We’re stoked it’s all on vinyl now.
As for lows? Lows are fuel for our material.
Running out of beer also sucks balls.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Bones: Voodoo folk songs. Mother’s Finest. Rod Stewart. Crunt.
Cuz: Motorhead, Fleetwood Mac, Megadeth, Maiden. All the good stuff.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Bones: I’d eat my own head, since I quit smoking it’s pretty fat. So my head would get eaten first. Then I’d eat all the other cunts in the band.
Cuz: I’d eat Bones. Coz I think he’d taste like BBQ Shapes and beer.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Bones: We harbour so much hate! Especially for unicorns! Always dropping their candy coated eyelashes like cigarette butts everywhere, and farting rainbows.
Also being asked to help build studios shits us a fair bit.
Cuz: iPhones at gigs. People, just enjoy the fact you’re at a gig! Leave the phone at home.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
Bones: It’d be between Cherry Bar, or a place we hang out up at the Black Spur, or Cuz’s dilapidated mental asylum.
Cuz: It’d be in the Black Spur Forest. A heap of panel vans parked in a big circle, with headlights on full beam!
Bones: In random order… we’d have these reprobates on the bill:
Radio Birdman
Lubricated Goat
Six Ft Hick
Jackson Firebird
The Black List
Cuz: Yeah… plus Rose Tattoo and us.
