Your band’s name is A Fish Called Piranha. What’s that all about?
Kwong: "We used to be called a lot of different names -- Moshing ror Krayons, A Forever Sunday and of course, our favourite, MUFK. Later, in some college business class, a prof. said that good, successful bands have 'animal' names in them like the Beatles, the Byrds, Cobra Starship. So, I originally wanted a name with the fastest animal on the planet, a cheetah. But I settled with piranha instead for the ferocious-sounding name. After a Google search, it was disheartening to find that it was taken. Then one day I was flipping through the TV Guide and a movie that brought back fond memories jumped out of the page, it was the legendary John Cleese movie, 'A Fish Called Wanda.' Thus, A Fish Called Piranha was born."
So what does a fish named piranha actually sound like?
A Fish Called Piranha is a blend of indie rock sounds with a folkie leaning, to a more brash Mutt Lange-infused production with Kurt Cobain-esque poetry. D.I.Y. ethics splashes all over the double-album!
