US: Your new EP is very nice, with catchy songs and cool artwork, what made you decide to record an EP instead of a follow up full length record?
DEE DEE: Just a timing thing, really. Was dying to put out something new that reflected a more accurate depiction of the band.
US: You do a cover of The Smiths ‘There is a light that never goes out’ is that song particularly special to you, were any other covers up for debate?
DEE DEE: All sorts, but that one just turned out to be the perfect choice. It became my mantra.
US: Your new tour booklet featuring photos of what gets people high is out soon, so we have to ask, what gets Dee Dee high?
DEE DEE: Walking around NYC stoned, listening to music, reading books while drinking coffee, eating a good meal, running, writing and recording new songs, fresh coconuts, meeting new people who don’t suck, being in love.
US: We come across Brooklyn band Minks from your blog who we instantly fell in love with, have you came across anyone new who’s blown you away recently?
DEE DEE: Just them.
US: We are looking forward to seeing you at your forthcoming London shows, what do you like to do when your in London?
DEE DEE: Get tattoos, drink Guiness, buy leather jackets.
