Green Buzzard, to use the obvious wordplay, are the buzzband of the moment. Signed to I OH YOU (DZ Deathrays, DMAs) the Sydney band have erupted into the live music scene, and have started wowing audiences with some pretty top notch gigs, including opening slots for Splendour in the Grass bands like The Vaccines.
They’re set to play at upcoming Sydney festival Small World Festival, alongside DZ Deathrays, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders and more. We wanted to get to know a little more about the guys, so we asked them to share some of their favourite tunes with us. Enjoy!
1. My favourite track to wake up to is… The Damned – I Just Can’t Be Happy Today
If it’s a Monday morning.
2. The best track for cooking is… Skeptics – AFFCO
Only if you’re in the mood for lamb.
3. The best track for spring cleaning is… Napalm Death – You Suffer
Mainly cause the track goes for 1 second.
4. The ultimate road trip track is… Queens Of The Stone Age – Walkin’ On The Sidewalks
To be played if driving in Nevada Desert. Tried and tested. Approved.
5. My favourite love song is… Sam Cooke – You Send Me
Even though he died getting shot trying to attack a women at a motel wearing nothing but a sports coat and a shoe, he’ll still be that 60’s soulful heart throb we all know and love. Bless.
6. The best track for sweet, sweet lovemakin’ is… Eric Carmen – All By Myself
7. The track that always gets the party started is… E.L.O – Evil Woman
Works every time.
8. The best track to wind down a crowd is… Anything by Red Hot Chili Peppers
Not sure if it will wind down a crowd but it will definitely clear it.
9. My favourite drunken karaoke track is…
(See question 7)
10. My favourite song to sing in the shower is… Barry Manilow – Mandy
Sometimes if I’m really in the zone I swear I sound just like him.
11. A song that always makes me cry is… Seal – Kiss From A Rose
Mainly because it makes me think of how bad Batman Forever was.
12. I love going to sleep listening to…
Is there really no cure for tinnitus? Is this my life? I’m freaking out.
13. I can’t stop dancing when I hear….
