Seismic Rad-Libs:Kevin Murphy of The Moondoggies.
Familiar with The Moondoggies? Well if you’re from Seattle there is a good chance you are. The band has been featured on the MTV series 5 Dollar Cover (which features several Seattle bands), and this last summer played the enormous music festival known as Bonaroo in Tennessee. Right now Kevin and company are doing a stint with the Dawes on the road, so I am grateful that Kevin took the time out to be our weekly rad-libber. Let’s get a glimpse shall we?
People assume that I: Can hear them. I only have hearing in my left ear. I might be nodding at you or spacing out not realizing you were talking to me.
Don’t ask me to: Argue music, because its subjective … like Zappa says ” Writing about music is like dancing about architecture”.
Recording Tidelands was: A learning process as is with every album you make.
To get away from it all I typically: Helicopter to my vacation home on Cape Cod.
I never planned on: Growing to be 8 feet tall. I still don’t.
I wish people would: Boogie.
Seattle is : The underdog.
My worst habit is: Smoking.
My dream gig would be: Playing with Camper Van Beethoven
I can’t imagine: Being eaten by a shark or choose not to.
