Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with Coeds!
Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
Ryan: We try to sound like The Muffs or The Nerves or The Primitives. But we kind of sound like wannabe CHVRCHES.
Mer: A lot of people have been saying we'd fit on a John Hughes movie soundtrack though so that's cool. All I've ever wanted is to be in a John Hughes movie.
Who are your musical influences and idols?
Both: Nirvana, always and forever. Also Elastica.
Ryan: On the pop side nobody beats Michael Jackson and Max Martin.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
Mer: I bought Elastica and Weezer on CD from Kemp Mill Music in Reston, VA.
Ryan: I bought Michael Jackson's Dangerous on cassette. My whole family tried to tell me that tapes were over and compact discs were the future, but I refused to listen, and bought the last tape ever made.
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
Mer: We just played our first show at SXSW. But in my last band, I played a theater call Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh that everyone said was haunted and the singer of the band we were opening for wouldn't come in. It was a weird night.
What's the first thing you look for when you hit a new town?
Mer: We're milkshake connoisseurs.
Ryan: Actually the label card on our 7" says SHAKE BREAK MUSIC because when we were writing songs in Austin last summer, we'd always take a SHAK BRAAAAK when we got something good done.
Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
Mer: Well, we're not good enough to jam with anybody, so let's skip that part. But we'd wanna open for Amy Winehouse, then Eurythmics.
Ryan: And then a set change for NIN, and finally Biggie and Tupac would close out the show together.
