Stay Tooned In Interview. Responses from Christy Karacas
For those not familiar with cheeseburger how would you describe your sound in new album “Another Big Night Down The Drain”?
Rock and roll party music.
Cheeseburger has garnered comparisons to the Stooges and the Dickies do you think you share a similar sound?
Who or what influences the band?
Rock and roll music, beer, good times, getting wasted, comedy
How has this album progressed from your first?
Well, we were originally a three piece. Now we have bass and an additional guitar so there’s a bigger, more polished sound. Since the record came out we have a total of three guitars, bass and drums so the live shows are sounding pretty rad.
Are there any personal favourite songs on the album?
Depends on my mood. I’m really into ‘Roll Like That’ lately.
What was the process you had go through to your album released through Adult Swim label – Williams Street Records?
Get them really drunk and stoned and trick them into signing us. They had the munchies from all the partying and they thought they were signing the bill for a big sack of White Castles.
Are there any tips you can share on how an aspiring band/ artist can get their songs on a show like Superjail?
Get a show then just put your own band on there. Haha. Just Kidding. I guess work really hard, record your stuff and get it out there any way you can?
It’s probably kind of hard… I think a lot of it is timing and luck so if you have a dream don’t ever give up.
Would you consider putting your music on another show if given the chance?
Are there any big live performances coming up that your fans need to know about?
Friday, June 3rd at Union Pool in Brooklyn. Then Sled Island Festival in Calgary on June 24, 11pm (3rd of 4) at The Legion (upstairs) w/ Hunx and His Punx, Shannon and the Clams, Invasives, June 25, 11pm (headline) at Vern’s w/ Bare Wires, Young Ones, Camp Radio June 26, time TBA at Republik w/ Thee Oh Sees, The BellRays, Bare Wires, Demon’s Claws
Question from Explosivo_420 (adult swim forum): As a party band how many parties have you played? Are they any super wild stories that you can share? Also do you need a bass player? I’m totally available.
We’ve played a milllion parties. Good times. We had these two fans in LA come to our hotel room after the show to party. They were really nice – then out of no where they come out in bathrobes and get totally naked. They were trying to get everyone naked…but the boyfriend was like this HUGE wrestler type dude. So it was kind of scary, but they were nice and left…but yea…that was kind of nuts…Thanks for the offer but we got a bass player-but if he gets too drunk to play you can jump on stage. Where do you live?
