Dollsquad Q&A - Alice
By Crimson Kitten
DOLLSQUAD – Alice (Organ and Keyboards)
CK: It's the bad-ass babes from Doll Squad! How are we ladies?
DS: Not bad at all thanks :-)
CK: It looks like leather and long locks with the beehive is the uniform, right?
CK: So can just anyone don the leather pants and rock like Doll Squad?
DS: Sure, why the hell not! The more the merrier.
CK: Where did the musical talents come from for each of you?
DS: We've all been playing our instruments for years and years. I started playing classical piano when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. We've all worked pretty hard, and it's definitely paying off now.
CK: What kind of genre would you call your music? It's kind of like 60's pop music that was slammed through the garage for a bit of edge.
DS: I think you just described it pretty well there.
CK: Are you following a certain scene, or sound, or doing something off the beaten track, so to speak?
DS: When we went to Europe earlier this year, I realised that the 60s garage thing is enduringly popular over there. Jo (our singer) has always kept abreast of new bands of that ilk. It's a pretty fun scene.
CK: What should adoring fans get excited to see from your performance at Red Bennies?
DS: Oh, all sorts of awesomeness. A trapeze artist or something. Awesome. Also, just us doin' what we do.
CK: As an all-girl gig, do you consider yourselves role models for young women out there?
DS: I hope so.
CK: So perhaps some last words of advice for aspiring acts out there, like how best to get into a catsuit?
DS: Dust yourself down with talcum powder prior to putting on the catsuit. This will combat chafing.
Alice, Organ and Keyboard player from Doll Squad will perform at Red Bennies Friday 3rd September.
