Drunk Dial #5 - CRY BABE (7")
1. A Romance of Many Dimensions
2. Violet (Hole)
Post-recording interview with Cry Babe
[DD] Drunk Dial prohibits writing or rehearsing the cover before going into the studio, but did you prepare for the day of recording in any other way?
[CB] Deciding what drugs to take, and procuring them, might have been the hardest part. and deciding which song to do as a cover.
[DD] Did you have any specific fears going into the studio? What ended up being the most difficult part?
[CB] I was afraid I would get too high and not be able to play my instrument or be a person. i think the hardest part was figuring out how much drugs to take and also time management proved to be tricky. it was also pretty intimidating writing a song on the spot, sometimes we will agonize over a song for months so writing a song in three hours and recording it was scary to think about.
[DD] Why did you choose to cover Hole’s “Violet”?
[CB] Because hole is badass and iconic. they broke into the mainstream while staying true to punk.
[DD] Do you prefer playing music sober or buzzed?
[CB] We normally practice sober but sometimes drink before shows.
[DD] What is the best cover song of all time.
[CB] Anais- Someday, The Strokes covered by Julia Jacklin
Maddie- Drain You, Nirvana covered by Horse Feathers
Rose- Cut Your Bangs, Radiator Hospital covered by Girlpool
[DD] It's closing time at a bar full of your friends, there's only time to play one more song on the jukebox. What do you play?
