The Jezabels pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist

Australian quartet, the Jezabels, make broad moody pop that expounds on gender and relationships with undeniably infectious hooks.

The Jezabels play a 21+ show at the Maggie Mae’s Rooftop (323 E. 6th Street) this Saturday, March 19, 2011, starting at 11:00 PM.

Name:  The Jezabels
Genre: Pop? Indie?
Latest Title: Dark Storm EP (Self-Released)

This, That, or the Other
1. Underground OR Mainstream? This and That (Both)
2. Maintain Artistic Integrity and Vision OR Make a lot of Money? (OR Both)??? This (Maintain Artistic Integrity)
3. Studio OR Stage? That (Stage)
4. Spirituality OR Hedonism? Other
5. Make Love, Have Sex, OR %$*!? This (Make Love)

Fill in the Blank
6. Music is my means to express strange things.
7. I’m musically inspired by a mixture of W. G. Sebald and Gillian Welch…
8. If I could have made any music video it would have been a mockumentary by Chris Lilley.                                       
9. If I was a super hero I’d be honest.                                                
10. Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll should change to No Life, No Health, and Fun Sometimes.

Short Answer
11. I make music because:  I don’t really know – I just started with friends and four years later we’re still doing it…It’s really fun, I suppose?
12.  I want my fans to:  Stay the same – I think that we have awesome fans.
13. If I could only share one thing about myself it would be:  I’m a red under the bed.
14. Wild Card!  A customer bet a butcher that he couldn’t get the meat off the top shelf.  The butcher replied, “No.  The steaks are too high.”
15. I want my musical legacy to be:  A great collection of albums and a lot of great memories of our live shows.  Nothing more.

The unclarity of question Number 5 through these SXSW pop quizzes continues.  I choose the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” for the Jezabels.  I think someone who appreciates mockumentaries can appreciate this video.
