Please describe your sound in your own words.
'Sports and Leisure' rock.
How did your band form?
Two of us met on the schoolyard when we were 12 and got to work immediately on the band. The third member of the trio surfaced about 10 years later at music school. So I'd say we're forever indebted to the education system, but Nic [Basque, guitarist] was actually a saxophone thief and not a student. We just liked his look.
What are your musical influences?
Lions, tigers and Charlie Watts.
What's the story behind the band's name?
We wanted something that felt natural. Woo!
What's your biggest vice?
Carbs? Are they still bad?
What's in your SXSW survival kit?
We're each taking a mansion. This could be our big break!
What's the craziest thing you've seen or experienced while on tour?
Once we were eating lunch in the countryside in Mexico and we turned around to see a monkey sitting in our van dousing himself with insect repellant.
The ultimate question: Beatles or Rolling Stones and why?
We always vote Stones on that one. The Beatles did amazing things, but that Stones voodoo business... I mean, please.
