CD Times meets....Ten Minutes With My Dad
HEY DUDE. WE ARE TAMMY ( FROM NYC) AND PAMMY (FROM LONDON)
AND TOGETHER WE ARE TEN MINUTES WITH MY DAD.
How did you form and decide to do whatever it is your doing?
TAMMY - WE HAVE BEEN PERFORMING LIVE MUSIC SHOWS SINCE JANUARY 2004. (8 MONTHS)
PAMMY - YEA...BUT, TEN MINUTES WITH MY DAD FIRST STARTED OFF AS A 10 MINUTE PERFORMANCE ART STAGE SHOWS IN AUG 2003.
WE WOULD BOTH WOULD DRESS UP AS MEXICAN WRESTLERS AND CAT FIGHT FOR 10 MINUTES DURING SONIC MOOK DJ SETS AT VARIOUS PARTIES AROUND LONDON.
TAMMY - WE ALSO WOULD SOMETIMES WEAR FULL RUBBER OLD MEN MASKS AS WELL. WHICH LOOKED REALLY FUCKING CREEPY BECAUSE WE HAD GIRL BODIES AND UGLY OLD MAN FACES.
PAMMY - PEOPLE STARTED FREAKING OUT OVER THE PERFORMANCE SHOWS SO WE DECIDED TO MAKE SOME MUSIC THAT WE COULD PERFORM TO INSTEAD OF RELYING ON DJ MUSIC.
TAMMY - WE GOT INTO OUR FRIEND’S STUDIO (TAKA FROM GOBSAUAGE) AND IN 2 WEEKS CAME UP WITH 4 SONGS AND STARTED TO PERFORM LIVE SETS. OUR FIRST GIG WAS ON NEW YEARS EVE 2003 AT CATCH 22.
PAMMY - WHEN WE STARTED DOING SHOWS WITH OUR OWN SONGS WE DROPPED THE MEXICAN WRESTLERS AND OLD MEN.
TAMMY - YEA...WE UNDERWENT HEAVY COSMETIC METAL SURGERY.
What are you doing?
TAMMY: I’M WASHING MY HAIR
PAMMY: I’M PLAYING WITH MATCHES
When I first saw you, I wasn't sure how to react. Is that common and what sort of reaction do you normally get?
TAMMY: PEOPLE DON’T KNOW IF THEY SHOULD START LAUGHING, START FIGHTING, START FUCKING OR JUST CURL UP INTO FOETUS POSITION AND START CRYING.
PAMMY: SHOCK AND AWE
What's been the most extreme reaction so far?
TAMMY: SOME GIRL PUKED ON MY SHOE ONCE.
PAMMY; WE GOT BANNED FROM THE KERRANG STAGE AT DOWNLOAD 2004
Shows how rock 'n' roll Kerrang! is these days....
What’s the best show you’ve done?
TAMMY: UHHH.. THE MIAMI MUSIC CONFERENCE IN MARCH AT THE IAN SCHRADER HOTEL. ALL THESE MEGA TANNED YUPPIES WERE WATCHING OUR POOLSIDE SHOW. AFTERWARDS THEY WERE YELLING “THAT WAS TOTAL SHIT’ OVER AND OVER. SO WE TOOK MDMA AND WENT ON TOP OF THE HOTEL ROOF AND CONTEMPLATED SUICIDE.
PAMMY; WE PLAYED READING RIGHT AFTER DIRTY SANCHEZ WAS ON STAGE. THEY WERE DRINKING THEIR OWN POO ENEMAS. THE CLEAN UP CREW HAD SHIT AND BLOOD TO CLEAN UP . WE SAID WE DIDN’T MIND THE STAGE AS IT WAS. BUT THEY TOLD US WE WOULD CONTRACT ECOLI OR EVEN EBOLA.
Is there a long term plan?
CRASH AND BURN
Do you have a direction?
STRAIGHT TO HELL.
Can you perform for longer than ten minutes?
Is it performance art or is it music?
WE DON’T KNOW ANYMORE
A bit of both?
Is there a difference?
Favorite Heavy Metal band? Favorite song?
TAMMY - BETHLEHEM, VERSCHLEIERTE IRRELGIOSITAT
PAMMY - THOR. LIGHTENING STRIKES
Who would you most like to perform with if you could choose anyone to be part of your act?
TAMMY: DAVID HASSLEHOFF
TAMMY: I’M GONNA BLOW DRY MY HAIR
PAMMY: I'M GONNA LIGHT MY CRACK PIPE.
