Speed Dating
Saturday 16th June, 2018
Speed dating this week with garage pop trio The Belafontes, following their latest single that dropped this week, new kids on the block Comedown Party and new wave rockers UIU.

The Belafontes

Where do we know you from?
We're Jess and Paul from the Melbourne band The Belafontes.

What do you do with yourself?
Being a DIY band we spend most of our time recording and producing our own music at home, creating promo material for the band and rehearsing! Our real jobs are very uninteresting, but we wish it could be music/party time every time.

Sunnyboys or Zooper Doopers?
Paul: Sunnyboys for sure, they come in a superior shape and they are more mouth friendly than the zoop.
Jess: I do not discriminate against any iced confections.

Audience participation?
Is the best thing ever! We bring tambourines and cowbells along to most gigs and hand them out to the crowd. Sometimes it backfires - at one gig the bar staff told us to stop because everyone was drunk and clanging cowbells all over the dance floor out of time.

What cover band would you wanna be a part of?
Paul: The Smokes (strokes cover band). Everyone loves The Strokes, who wouldn't wanna see that!
Jess: I will start a Sheer Mag cover band so I can be Tina Halladay.

What's something you said you didn't do but you totally did?
Paul: These kinds of stories could get me into actual trouble with the police.
Jess: I never tell Paul when I eat dessert for breakfast.

What’s your perfect Sunday?
Paul and Jess: In bed with our cats and tea all day!
