In a recent email interview with keyboardist/saxophonist Rob Crowell of super band Deer Tick, hilarity ensues. I laughed, I cried, I learned that tequila by itself is more powerful than tequila in a fancy drink, and I defended the amount of fingers that I possess.
Deer Tick will perform at The Loft on Saturday, April 28th along with Turbo Fruits and Telegraph Canyon. The author would like to stress that she does, in fact, have the normal amount of fingers.
On your most recent album, Divine Providence, which song was the most rewarding to record?
I liked recording “The Bump” the best. It was written immediately before we recorded it, and was spontaneous and pretty raw. Good times.
Which song of yours is the most fun to perform onstage?
“Funny Word” is always a good time, between the fact that it’s really high energy and the stage antics that usually accompany it.
You had an amazing 2011, making it on to Paste’s ‘Best Albums of 2011′ list and performing on Letterman. What has been the highlight of your career as a band thus far?
DudeSmash will be the highlight for sure. If you don’t know what it is, you’ll be able to Google it soon.
