Frenchy & The Talent will be making their way to the Gold Coast this Saturday for Shakafest. The festival will see 19 bands hit 2 stages, plus skaters, food trucks & more! Frenchy & The Talent, promise a very aesthetically pleasing show.
1. So, your band is made up of Frenchy, Romie from The Zilzies and Zach Gervais. Does that put you under the category of a Supergroup?
Nah we prefer to think of ourselves as the Avengers. The Avengers of pingas.
2. You released your latest single ‘Football Drunk’ earlier in the year, are we expecting more ‘bangerz’ in the works?
Yep we actually have 3 songs in the bag right now, whether they are bangerz or trash is up for debate but my Gran seems to like them. (She’s deaf.)
3. Shakafest will be the band’s first festival, what can the Gold Coast crowd expect from a Frenchy & The Talent live set?
Expect the best set of the fucking year. Fact. (maybe not musically but at least visually.)
4. What is your preferred type of shoe to perform your mastered art of the ‘Shoey’?
I like using other peoples shoes nowadays, cause that way I don’t have to walk around with a wet shoe the whole night. Yeah it’s a bit fucked drinking from someone’s sweaty, smelly shoe but it’s better in the long run. (unless I get mouth tinea.
5. If you could join one another band on stage that’s also on the Shakafest line-up, who would it be?
Probably S-Club 7, Rebecca Black or Limp Bizkit. I haven’t seen the line-up but I’m assuming they are on it.
6. If you had to pick between the two, which would you prefer. Listen to someone scratch a chalkboard through headphones or watch Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ music video on repeat?
I have watched All Star on repeat many times and never regretted it. That shit shoulda won a Grammy it’s fire.
7. Lastly, what would it take for you to close your set at Shakafest with Whitney Houston’s version of ‘I Will Always Love You’?
We’ll do it for half a goon sac or an over the pants hj.
