We caught up with Dan Kurtz, Joel Stouffer, and Chris Hugget on their tour stop in Vancouver to talk about Perez Hilton, celebrity perfumes, and the wonders of Craigslist.
Dan on Celebrity perfumes:
“What’s with all these celebrities and their perfumes? I think it’s really annoying. Why do I care what Britney Spears’ perfume smells like? Why would I ever but a perfume by Britney Spears?
Joel on the bands UR IN spoof:
“It was an expensive joke.”
On guitarists Will Stapleton’s departure:
Dan: “I think Will just wanted to make another kind of music. He just wasn’t into it and that sucks for everyone and he would agree with that.
Joel: It’s very amicable. We’re still in touch with him and we probably all go for a drink when we’re in London in a few weeks.
Joel on how they found Chris:
“I posted an ad on Craigslist. We hooked up and it was perfect from the get-go.”
Chris on being the new guy:
“This is my first tour with them. I’m just taking it one day at a time. I’m having a blast so far.”
Dan on Perez Hilton:
“We became friends over the internet, almost like internet dating I guess. It was very helpful for us it actually turned a lot of American kids onto us in a way that would have never happened before.
Dan on Kayne West:
“I like Kayne’s music better than I do when he opens his mouth at every other event.”
Dan on future plans:
“I’m going on tour with my other band in between. I love it so much.”
