Ahead of the release of their eighth – yes, eighth – album, CHUNKS, US garage band White Fang are gearing up for a trek Down Under this month. Not only will they be playing a secret show, a festival (Sounds of The Suburbs) and a bunch of other dates, the boys will also be performing as their alter egos, The Memories. Two is better than one, and especially so in this case.
Jangly, fun, DIY rock at it’s best, White Fang have been on our radar for a while now, so we leapt at the chance to ask them about their favourite tracks that get them going. From Pantera to Homer Simpson and N*Sync, this is definitely one of our favourite playlists so far. Check the dates for their Australian tour below, and take our advice – you are going to want to see these guys.
My favourite track to wake up to is… Summer Samba, Walter Wanderley
I love this song cuz it’s got a nice mellow tropical feel, but it’s best before noon or after midnight.
The best track for cooking is… Cooking A Way To Be Happy, Eat Skull
Cuz it’s a good lo-fi song about cooking food or something from one of my favourite RIP Portland bands.
The best track for spring cleaning is… Walk, Pantera
It’s got a strong attitude which is good for lifting mountains of trash off the couch.
The ultimate road trip track is… Me & The Boys, NRBQ
Cuz me and my dudes go on the road all the damn time.
My favourite love song is… Hot Piss Drinker, The Yellow River Boys
It’s not but I love this song and album. It’s about drinking piss.
The best track for sweet love makin’ is… Candy, Cameo
Have you heard this song? Have you seen the video? You know why I chose this.
The track that always gets the party started is… Breathe, The Prodigy
Because everyone likes Prodigy and if they don’t they can deal with it or get the fuck out of my warehouse.
The best track to wind down a crowd is… The Oh! Of Pleasure, Ray Lynch
Cuz it’s trippy and sexy and soft and makes you wanna go home and bone down sweetly and softly.
My favourite drunken karaoke track is… Plush, Stone Temple Pilots
I did this in Philly last year while I was out visiting a chick on my vacation time and no one liked it.
My favourite song to sing in the shower is… When I Was 17, Homer Simpson
It’s tight. I have a Homer Simpson tattoo. He has a witch hat on and he’s got red eyes.
A song that always makes me cry is… Dancing In The Dark, Bruce Springsteen
This song’s about me…
I love going to sleep listening to… L’ Amore (album), Lewis
I broke my English friend’s toe right before we all fell asleep to this album.
I can’t stop dancing when I hear… I Want You Back, N*Sync
Even if I was bloated and full of shit in my ass and I’d been up for 3 days on shitty pills and was asleep on my feet I would instantly come back to life and be my beautiful old self again if this song came on.
CHUNKS is out October 30 via Burger Records.
