Exclusive Punk Farm Interview (Part Two)
(CONTINUED FROM PART ONE)
SHEEP: I wouldn’t mind collaborating with Billy Jo from Green Day. We could sit down and write some seriously deep songs.
GOAT: I’d like to work with Jack White, but after Cow and Meg White went head to head, it just got a little awkward and weird.
FUSE #8: Not everyone knows yet that Punk Farm has a MySpace page where certain selections of your songs are available for quick listening. You also appear to have, 1,957 friends, which I calculate to be the highest number achieved by barnyard animals on the site as of right now. How has such direct feedback from fans affected what you do? Have you changed your style at all in response to what they think?
CHICKEN: The feedback has all been positive, which only encourages us to make more rock.
SHEEP: More exciting than our MySpace page is our PunkFarmSpace.com website. MySpace is a great way to connect with our human fans, but PunkFarmSpace.com is the only place where we connect strictly with our fellow animals.
PIG: I love it, I log on every day.
GOAT: You just log on just to see if any fans posted about you.
PIG: Well, they’re always posting about me.
COW: Back to the second part of your question, we only change our style to accommodate us.
FUSE #8: And finally: Promise me you’ll never sell out.
SHEEP: We promise. The only thing we sell out is concerts.
Be sure to check out the Punk Farm website.
