GRUX Caroliner Rainbow Foot Rope

DO YOU FEEL YOUR BAND GIVES OUT NEGATIVE ENERGY?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY NEG. ENERGY? I DROVE RELATIVES OUTSIDE FROM A SHOW. I TRY TO KEEP NOISE EVERY SECOND OF THE SHOW FOR NO AUDIENCE RESPONSE, SO I CAN'T HEAR THEM.

CAN YOU CREATE A CLEAR PICTURE OF YOUR BAND?

NO, THIS IS CLOSE ENOUGH.

WHO IS IN YOUR BAND?

DEPENDS. RIGHT NOW GREGG ZIMMER, GRU*D PLASTIC COWSHIT CAP.

ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK TRYING SOMETHING NEW, AND LOSE?

I WAS GOING TO SAY ARE YOU KIDDING, BUT SOME DON'T THINK THE SAME. YES, YOU MIGHT NOTICE IF YOU SEE US LIVE. BABY THIRTY YEAR OLD CAUGHT WITH AN ASHTRAY INSTEAD OF GENITALS.

IS YOUR BAND OPTIMISTIC ABOUT NEW IDEAS AND OTHER FORMS OF MUSIC?

YES! NOTHING IS REALLY NEW, REALLY SO I WANT TO REVERT AND MODIFY, I.E.: DUANE EDDY WITH BASS AND MUTE CIGARETTE FACTORY FOR BACKUP.

IF I DON'T NOTICE SOMETHING, IT CAN'T EFFECT ME, IS IT TRUE?

I THINK SO: IF YOU'RE THINKING HARD ABOUT IT I DON'T HAVE TO, MAYBE...

WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM BEING IN CAROLINER RAINBOW PROBLEM?

FIRST, WE ARE NOW CAROLINER RAINBOW UMBILITONE, UMBILICAL CORD SAW SOUND. I'VE LEARNED BASS. SINCE OCTOBER I'VE LEARNED ABOUT LENDING THINGS, TRUSTING PEOPLE MOSTLY SEEM.

WHY DO YOU SEE YOUR MUSIC IS IMPORTANT?

I SHOW UP THE WHOLE UNIVERSE BECAUSE I EXIST, AND I CAN'T WON'T COUNT WHO DOES EXIST. I AM HAPPY.

BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD, IS THIS TRUE WITH THE MUSIC YOU CREATE?

I DON'T WANT TO BE SEEN AS I AM, PERSONALLY. IF THERE HAD TO BE BAND IMAGES I WOULD DEAL IN SOME WEIRD UNHUMAN IMAGE. I READ COMICS AND AM SICK OF SEEING THE HUMAN IMAGE OVER AND OVER. AS A CHOICE I WOULD DEFINITELY WANT TO BE HEARD. I LOOK AT WHAT I WEAR AND AM MOST OF THE TIME REAL AMUSED. I WANT TO PASS MYSELF OFF AS A COMBO OF BURLAP AND PUFFY CRUD WITH HIDDEN CRUMBLED WALL TO WALL PAPER STUFF. IT'S REAL HARD.

WHY DO YOU HELP OTHERS?

I DON'T ANYMORE. I LEARNED WHAT SEEMS DESPERATE.

DO YOU LOVE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED?

IT'S WORKING OUT NOW WITH AND WITHOUT. I LIKE MY TONGUE.

IS IT GOOD FOR YOU TO HAVE EVERYTHING YOU WANT FOR THE BAND?

IF I HAD EVERYTHING I WOULD WANT MORE, YES. MICK JAGGER PROBABLY GETS INSPIRED THROUGH NOT HAVING IT ALL. SATISFACTION MISS YOU THREE TIMES.

WHY DO YOU ENJOY PLAYING FOR PEOPLE?

DO I ENJOY IT I LIKE TO PLAY. I LIKE TO CONFUSE. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE AN AUDIENCE.

MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL, MONEY CONCEPETS, IT IS TRUE?

SURE, LOOK AT ITEMS WITH CHEESE AND THE CLASH. IGNORANCE TOO.

DO YOU SEE THIS AS A RICH UNIVERSE AND THAT THERE IS PLENTY OF MUSIC FOR ALL OF US?

YES. FOR ME. EVEN IF IT IS RE-HASHED. THERE'S A NEW LP I'VE YET TO HEAR.

WHAT DO YOU SEE IN OTHER BANDS?

WHARF CARDS AND TINY FLASH. RELAXATION MAINLY. I REST WHEN THERE'S NOTHING I CONSIDER COMPETING AGAINST. COMPETING IS DUMB SO IF YOU ARE (FILL IN) YOU BECOME EXTINCT OR ORIGINAL. WHERE THERE'S NO COMPETITION, A ROCK.
