BEACH PARTY INTERVIEW

Beach Party

Beach Party are an ‘Psychedelic-Afro-Disco-Surf-Punk’ band from Cape Town. They’ve just released a rad new album, and are pretty busy playing shows and touring. We caught up with the band to chat about playing shows in South Africa, opening for Australian band Dune Rats, and some crazy fan stories. Enjoy…

List band members and instruments:
Danny Video – Oohs, aahs, blahdy blahs
Big Daddy Dollfin a.k.a. “The D” – Bow chika wow wows
Andy ‘Tha Genius’ Islands – Beep boop doops
Black ‘Godspeed Thundercat’ Irish – Boom crash smash bash
Makki ‘Niks’ Summer – Baaarggh baarggh (Bass noises)

First things first, what style of music do you play? For the dumb assess that don’t know who you are or what genre to make of you.
Our music is in the style of ‘Psychedelic-Afro-Disco-Surf-Punk’ also known as ‘Afrodelic-Psyfro-Sisco-Purf-Dunk’ or just ‘Drunk’.

What would you say your all-round fav gig has been so far? The kind that is rad for its fuck ups or its perfection.
Our favorite gig ever was in Pretoria at Arcade Empire. It was wild like the motherfucking jungle that night. Shoh. Makki spent most of the time in the audience moshing with his bass and kicking kids in the face. Black Irish was drumming with his teeth at one point in the show. Nuts.

If you could mention an up and coming gig that you are mad hyped on that would be spiffy.
We’re very much looking forward to playing Sowing The Seeds festival this weekend on Saturday. If you’re in Mpumalanga then that’s where you need to be.

Beach Party just played a show with Dune Rats from Australia. Tell us how the gig went and what your opinions are on Dune Rats as a band and how they where in person.
The gig was frakkin’ rad! Loads of people showed up and partied super hard which was just lovely. They are really cool guys, exactly like they are in that music video where they just smoke bongs. When we met them they were hitting bongs and when we left them they were still hitting bongs. If you think it’s mad how tight they play it’s just insane how stoned they are when they walk on stage and hold it together like kings! I think we were all stoned once for a show and we forgot everything. Maybe they’ll teach us the ways this weekend.

You guys have done a few shows/festivals nationally. Which town are your fave to play in and your fav crowd to play for?
Have to say Pretoria and Joburg when it comes to touring, they get the fuck down with us.

Are there any thoughts of Beach Party sailing the seven seas, exploring the top ten beaches of the world or recording an album in a submarine or a whale’s stomach?
So many thoughts! We’re working on that. Aiming for a Narwhal’s intestines though, the acoustics are so squishy. Mmm.

Your audience seems youngish, have any of the band members come across some stalkers or crazy fans? If yes, tell us a story.
Hmmm… Well Andy has a fan site dedicated to his hair where all these creepy girls photoshop his hair on to their elbows. One fan/friend of ours made an animated fan video of us which is awesome but the video is slightly creepy in a good way. Look up ‘Beach Party – Fast Train’. Big D is the most famous though. She gets lots of creepy shit but we can’t discuss those due to legal issues.
