ON TOUR! 16 July 2019
SLINGSHOT DAKOTA & FRESH
Midway through their tour, these dreamy punks gave us an update from the road.
They play Manchester tonight!
Specialist Subject Records: Do you have any hot takes?
Kathryn: Every day on tour should have a mandatory nap built in.
Carly: Slingy D is best described as “shit band no songs.”
George: Sure is a hot one huh?!
SPS: How’s tour so far?
C: Tour has been incredible so far. Fresh & Andrew & Kay have been taking the best care of us!
G: So much fun!
SPS: Have you played with any cool bands that you'd never heard of before?
C: Every support band has been the best: Søft, Solution Hours & Rosehip Teahouse
G: Søft were so great.
SPS: How was 2000 Trees?
G: It was the best. I got to meet Andy Williams from Every Time I Die and watch them play Hot Damn, hang out with my friends in Free Throw, pretend to be a roadie, rep a rose wine company and eat Beckies Bajhis!
SPS: What’s been the best food on tour?
C: The best tour food has been all of the homemade food from Andrew & Kay!!! Especially the Mac & Cheese.
K: Andrew’s homemade vegan pancakes, and the BBQ that we had last night.
SPS: Where are you excited about playing this week?
K: I’m excited for Manchester, The Scotland shows and Leeds!
C: We are excited to go back to Leeds, the scene of Toms accident! Also stoked to go back to JT Soar as a full band since I had to play solo due to Toms accident.
G: Scotland is always fun.
SPS: What are you listening to in the van?
G: Tom Petty!
C: Mostly Tom Petty and the “Fresh Podcast” aka Jack/Myles/Kathryn chatting vividly in the back seat.
K: Each other!
SPS: Who’s doing the most farts?
K: It’s usually Myles but Carly is the champion thus far.
