From: London, United Kingdom
London combo (I just love that word, don't know why I just do!) Pet Scenes have taken time out from single handedly saving music from the fakes, the posers and the over sexualised bump 'n grind merchants to talk, and possibly fib, to the Devil.
The Devil: Why Pet Scenes?
Pet Scenes: Because it is ambiguous and doesn't include "the" or "one syllable plural". The Devil: What other names did you ponder before deciding it had to be Pet Scenes?
Pet Scenes: Jesus Lizard, Big Black, Sonic Youth, but we found out that all of these had been taken already.
The Devil: Who are the biggest influences in your life and on your music?
Pet Scenes: Roy Sullivan. He was hit by lightning 7 times in his life and survived each time. The odds are insane, I think it's proof of an infinite Universe. Ironically, he died by way of a self inflicted gun shot wound. So it goes.
The Devil: What was the first record you owned and what was the first record you ever bought with your own money?Pet Scenes: Probably something cool like Nirvana's Nevermind.
The Devil: What makes Pet Scenes stand out from the millions of other bands across the world? What makes you unique?
Pet Scenes: Ah we're not that unique, we just make loud, fast music.
The Devil: Which bands or artists on the current music scene make your spine tingle with joy?
The Devil: Favourite song?
Pet Scenes: I Wanna Be Your Dog by Iggy and the Stooges The Devil: Favourite book?
Pet Scenes: Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Devil: Favourite Movie?
Pet Scenes: Ace Ventura The Devil: Favourite word?
Pet Scenes: Flippant The Devil: Tell me something that you've never told anyone before.
Pet Scenes: I am Spartacus
The Devil: If you weren't in Pet Scenes how would you keep yourself occupied?
Pet Scenes: I'd just be crying relentlessly
The Devil: If you were interviewing yourself what would your killer question be and how would you answer it?
Pet Scenes: Q: Do you dig graves? A: Yeah, yeah they're alright, yeah The Devil: Is there anything else you'd like to tell the Devil Has The Best Tuna readers?
Pet Scenes: One of us is lying
