Interview with Les Touffes Kretiennes

Interview with Les Touffes Kretiennes at Rock Cafe

This is one of those bands that just whips the hippopotamus' ass with a belt.  They have about fourteen people on stage who constantly run around switching places.  Tuba, three trombones, bass and alto saxaphones, a trumpet, guitar, two drummers without shirts, slide whistle, theramin.

Here's what you need to do:
1. get rich
2. get married
3. invite Les Touffes Kretiennes to play at your wedding so that
4. you can give them lots of money

Alright enough of that, words fail me.  Here are their thoughts on matters of critical importance.  I'll put their links first so you can get some audio happening.  Would I leave my dear reader in the dark and lonely silence?  How now!

Some of our questions were prepared in advance, some improvised.  

Maybe it was because the band was eating as I interviewed them, but..
