Talking Game Plan With TWSS

Melbourne rock band TWSS talks to us about their strategy for getting through round one at The Espy next Friday, September 12th



The game plan for TWSS when the take the stage at The Espy for round one of Emergenza Festival Australia?? To get through the gig in one piece! That proved a difficult feat the last time they played the festival when their singer shattered his leg in a moment of rock and roll induced rapture... To their much-deserved street cred, they powered through the show anyway and have since healed up. Come out and catch their on stage craziness next Friday, September 12th at The Espy. And in the meantime, get the whole behind the scenes scoop on the band.

WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE BEHIND THE NAME TWSS?
Have you ever had to name a band? Yes... Well, have you ever had to name a band with a bunch of immature idiots? We have! Every name we came up with had some sort of innuendo associated with it... "That's What She Said" was said after almost every suggestion so it stuck... in our defence we were 16 at the time...!

WHO PLAYS WHAT IN THE BAND AND WHAT KEEPS YOU INSPIRED TO PLAY MUSIC TOGETHER?
Josh doesn't just play the drums... he makes them his bitch. Toby has the low down beats that drive the ladies crazy... he also plays bass. Donnelly does what no other male can do... vocals and rhythm guitar... THAT'S TWO THINGS AT ONCE! Paul is the best at guitar hero... WITH A REAL GUITAR! Pittsy makes mouth noises with his mouth hole. We are inspired by deep seeded hatred for one another.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN THREE WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Too Darn Loud.

WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR MAJOR MUSICAL INFLUENCES?
David Eric Grohl/Foo Fighters/Nirvana, Gyroscope, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Queen.

WHAT'S THE CRAZIEST THING YOU'VE DONE TOGETHER AS A BAND?
Ok… so last time we played an Emergenza show... We totally gained some rock cred. One minute and 30 seconds into the first song of our set at the Hi-Fi, Pittsy decided it would be a good idea to jump off the 20cm drum riser and snap his ACL, strain his PCL and crack his Tibial Plateau... in other words he done screwed up his leg. But... and this is the cool bit, he kept going... and we rocked the hell out of that crowd! After the show he was carried off stage, given the green pain whistle and dragged out of the venue in his underwear... Ladies?

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT YOUR SHOW AT THE ESPY?
Not breaking a leg... and compressing a full show’s worth of rock into 25 minutes!

WITH OTHER BATTLE OF THE BANDS COMPETITIONS AROUND, WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE EMERGENZA?
We have a point to prove now... We are going to make it to the finals with all our limbs intact.
