interview : The Emeralds (Steve Hauschildt)


The 18th of June, Dennis Cooper had selected The Emeralds for his "mid-year round up of the early prime candidates for [his] year-end Best of 2010 Top Ten Lists". It's probably enough to introduce them.

1. Your first musical memories?
The first song that I recall hearing was 'Yellow Submarine' by the Beatles, I was probably three years old or so.

2. The best record you received as a present? / The worse one?
Mark and John give me all of their solo LPs and those are all excellent

I'm not sure, but Mark still has my Ducktails II cassette.

I have an imaginary band with Mark Mcguire and James Ferraro called the Undisputed Psycho Queen of Dinotopia. We have three future records we have planned out, one is called "Twisted Samurai"

5. In which environment do you like to record music?
