This, That, or the Other
1. Underground OR Mainstream? Underground
2. Maintain Artistic Integrity and Vision OR Make a lot of Money? (OR Both)??? Both, please.

Fill in the Blank
6. Music is my hot hot sex.
7. We’re musically inspired by each other, bike rides, relationships, swimming, culture, fears, music, money, fall.
8. If I could  have made any music video it would have been “Whip My Hair” [Willow cover] by Skull Tape.                                          
9. If I was a super hero I’d be Wolverine.                                                      
10. Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll should change to Red Bull, Late Night Tacos, and Gas Money.

Short Answer
11. I make music because:  It’s fun, it feels good, and sometimes you have to.  Also, it’s cathartic – writing, getting frustrated, getting it right, then performing it, and letting your body and mind to memorize it.
12. I want my fans to:   dance and feel connected to what we’ve written like it’s what they meant to say or think.
13. If I could only share one thing about myself it would be:  The Long Tangles are industrious and efficient.
14. Wild Card!  We met in a seedy bar in New Orleans, and Coco was underage.
15. I want my musical legacy to be:  That we worked with other people to make beautiful music and support each other rather than working against anyone.  We’re all in this together, right?

Watch the video the Long Tangles wish they would have made!
