Ice Box from the Little Giants

Have you ever seen a ghost on tour? Do you believe in them?  
I've seen a lot of things on tour but never a ghost so I guess not...

Which three people, living or dead, would you have dinner with?
Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen, Bill Murray

Who is your favourite ghost of all time?
The ghost marshmallows from Count Chocula cereal.

Do you have any pre-performance rituals or superstitions?
I spend most of my pre-performance time running around the room trying to find a weight for the E Flat on my Moog keyboard because I don't have enough fingers to hold it down and play the other parts. Weights have ranged from a Power Adaptor to an onion.

What is your favorite place in the whole world and why?
Russian Turkish Baths in New York City's East Village. Most relaxing stop of tour. Go on Co-Ed day!



Artist: Young Galaxy
Featured song: Firestruck


What was the inspiration for the song that appears on the show?
We wanted to write a soul or gospel-style torch song, to work from within that kind of archetype musically for a change. As far as the trajectory and dynamic of the song, it was definitely influenced by a live recording of Spiritualized's "Shine a Light."

Describe your music in five words or less.
Irreverent and chameleon.

What was the first album you ever owned?
KISS' "Destroyer." I have an early memory of sucking my thumb when I was four, looking at my KISS poster on the wall.

If you could be reincarnated, what would you come back as?
The Real McCoy.

Have you ever seen a ghost on tour?  Do you believe in them?
I'm a ghost on tour, so sure.

Which three people, living or dead, would you have dinner with?
Any combination of young-cock-eyed-optimists-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks would do, really.

Who is your favorite ghost of all-time?
50 Berkeley Square ghost, London, England.

What is your favorite place to be in the whole world?
I am everywhere at once.
