Two Minutes With ZOND

Friday, July 26th, 2013

We spend two minute with ZOND ahead of their gig supporting Barn Owl in Melbourne on August 10 and find out what’s what…

What’s going on in the world of ZOND?
Planning to record album number 2.

What motivates you to make music?
Life and living… to annoy and/or pleasure others and ourselves.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Jamming with Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson at the Sydney Opera house was quite good.
Low points… equipment, mind and toilet failures.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Total Control, Lakes, Alberich, Jeff Mills, Nekrasov, Swans, Keiji Haino, Matthew Brown, 1919, Kate Bush, The Aesthetics, Steely Dan, Brainbombs, Container, Jimi Hendrix, Felt, Exhaustion, Prince, Xasthur, Rudimentary Peni, Dire Straits, Public Enemy, Disclose, The Cure, Trepaneringsritualen, ZZ Top, Prurient, Killing Joke, Dead Boomers, Ryoji Ikeda, Transvision Vamp…

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Band equipment and the pilot’s torso we found washed up on the beach.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
Groups that lack intensity in any form and raisins/sultanas/currants.

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.
SPK, Sea Scouts, Slugfuckers, The New Season, Solids, Icehouse, Venom P Stinger, Max Q, Thug, Collapsed Toilet Vietnam… at the MCG.
