First I want to thank Valeria Quinn for the links to some bonus Mega-Ran song!
It’s pretty tight, I liked it a lot. Feel free to leave music recommendations. FAIR WARNING: I have at least 2 more interviews for the nerdcore series and a couple of bands to follow up on first but I am open to suggestions!
Koo Koo Kanga Roo! is a fun duo and put on an excellent show.
When they came up on stage, in their gold sneakers and gold fanny/bum packs (worn on the front), they put on some music and had been warming up and told the crowd “We are a dance along kind of show” which was followed by instructions for the crowd to learn some dance moves, one maybe two and all pretty easy, per song starting with a warm up song. I wish I could remember their line up however here are some fun songs by them:
I’m pretty sure this is the first song they opened with.
Pancakes for Dinner
I know they played this one.
I remember this one was particularly funny since in the UK fanny…doesn’t mean the same thing as it does in the US.
And here’s the interview:
Who inspires you? Musically, artistically, writing, personally? (As many answers as you want, don’t worry about restricting yourself to one source).
We like any group or band or performer that puts on a great live experience. We started the band after seeing bands like Dance Band, Zibra Zibra, of Montreal and the Flaming Lips.
Did you always want to be a musician/songwriter or was there a “monkey touch monolith” moment?
Always liked music and wanted to be apart of it some how. Didn’t know how until college.
What do you consider your greatest artistic and/or professional and/or personal achievement? (Feel free to answer all three or one or a combination, whatever man)
Just the fact that we are still doing this crazy little project is cool to us, but feel like there are still bigger things we want to get to.
What superpower would you have if you could have one and why/what would you do with it? (Seriously anything, from the mundane, to the established, to something completely original)
I want to have a pocket of gummi bears always loaded up. Fully stocked at all times.
If you could be in possession of a pocket dimension that you could travel into and out of at will, that contained any established cannon (books, movies, comics, video games, Salvador Dali paintings, anything) what would it be and what would you want to most do in there?
I would go into the Mighty Ducks universe and hang with the team. Maybe be their water boy.
Big thank you goes to Koo Koo Kanga Roo for playing along!
