Get A Load Of Her!
words: John Simandir-ass
SLUNT emerged from New York, with a clear rock-the-world philosophy and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Their first album, ‘Get A Load Of This’ is a hot, adrenaline-fueled, kinky, sleazy, piece of rockNroll, for all those who GIVE a shit! You may call it hard and heavy, too. Currently working on the follow up to ‘Get A Load Of This’, SLUNT are becoming popular here and there. They’ve also become one of the darlings of our radio show, thanks to the constant airplay they’ve been getting on ‘diamonds’ since October 2005.
Fresh from having sex (she claims she’s done it 7 hours ago, and it was -in her words- “juicy”), Abby Gennet, SLUNT’s guitarslinger and singer is providing us with her answers to our carefully-designed questions… proving that there’s much more than this little ‘N’ that makes the difference to SLUNT.
Abby, how relaxed are you, when you’re answering interview questions?
I’m in my jammies right now.
Have you ever left in the middle of a face-to-face interview, because you didn’t like the interviewer’s questions?
No, but you’re gettin’ fuckin close, buddy.
How important is ‘N’ to SLUNT?
Would you call YOUR mama a whore?
How do your parents feel about your being in a heavy rock band?
They love it. My mom wears her SLUNT T-shirt to all the gigs.
Is sharing the same van with the guys in SLUNT easy, when you’re on tour?
Only when they’re not gassy. We have a “no-fart” rule on the van.
Are women more loyal on the road than guys are?
Umm, what happens on the road stays on the road.
Is there something you hear all the time concerning SLUNT, that makes you want to put a screwdriver in your ear?
If anyone else asks me what SLUNT means, I’m gonna put a screwdriver in THEIR ear!
Do you think that SLUNT have something in common with Nashville Pussy? Have you ever met anyone from Nashville Pussy?
Guitar-wielding mamas playing dirty rock n roll! I met Corey, their old bass player, once. I photographed her blowing fire in a park. That was pretty cool.
Is Ron Jeremy, the famous pornstar, really one of your heroes, as you’re saying on your website, www.SLUNT.net? Have you ever talked to him or, erm, played in a movie with him?
I met him once & he squeezed my ass. He’s definitely a pro.
What are some of your turn-ons?
People who are secure with who they are. Oh, & young latin boys that don’t speak any English.
Is playing live a sexual turn-on for you in any way?
Hell yeah, especially cuz my guitar is at pussy level.
Have you ever experienced a wardrobe malfunction onstage?
Im always showin’ my ass crack to Pat & Charles, when I bend down to plug in my gear, but that’s about it.
What are you drinking before a stage appearance, what are you drinking during the show, and what’s the ideal after-the-show drink?
Jack. Jack. Jack.
Smelly boys & people that ask me what SLUNT means.
Who’s the sexiest male in the music industry today?
Who’s the sexiest female in the music industry today?
Paulina Rubio could come over.
Have you ever dated women?
Umm, define “dated”.
No, I won’t. I’ll ask you my next question, instead: Lots of male musicians partake in the groupie scene. Is that something women rockers do as well?
I have this funny way of cock-blocking the boys in my band.
When was the last time you had sex? How was it?
About 7 hours ago. Juicy.
Do words come easier to you than the basic melody of a song?
Yes. I’m usually pretty bad with coming up with hooks. But I can rhyme, yo!
Who would you like to produce your upcoming second album?
We’re in the process of compiling our wish list. Would love someone like GGGarth Richardson or Butch Walker.
What’s the earliest take was a keeper on the first LP, and who’ll have the final word on which take will be a keeper on this second LP?
Probably ‘Not About You’. We’re just gonna record what we have for this next one & see what comes out the best. We’ll ALL have a say in the editing process.
Which song is the ideal show-opener for SLUNT? And which one might be the ideal show-stopper for you?
We usually open with ‘The Best Thing’, but now we have a new one called ‘Here To Rock’ that will be a perfect show opener. Now we’ll probably CLOSE with ‘The Best Thing’, since it’s most recognizable to our fans.
Do people in the audience often scream for an encore after your gigs?
Depends where we are. We usually have a time constraint, since we’re opening for bigger bands, so we just rock it heavy & leave em wanting more.
Lemmy or Nick Oliveri?
What’s so special about New York?
It’s the capital of the universe.
Do you regret having done any of your tattoos?
Nope. Will probably get some more along the way.
Are there any tattoos under your underwear?
Well, I had this little mouse tattoo but my pussy ate it.
What’s the most embarrassing thing male fans have done in your presence?
Things don’t really embarrass me. I DID pierce a guy’s nipple with a SLUNT pin once though. That was fun. Luckily there was no blood.
Female fans sometimes flash their breasts to male performers they admire. Has a male fan ever dropped trou?
Nope. I’ve signed a few asses though. I’m also down with boobie signings… but usually they’re sweaty & then my sharpie gets ruined.
What was the nearest to Greece you ever got to play?
What do you want to say to Greek people that have spotted and loved SLUNT by listening to them on ‘diamonds’?
Keep it loud & keep it dirty. And make sure ya come visit us at www.slunt.net!
Loads of hugs and smiles to Sophie from Repossession Records for making all this possible! JS
