What"s up Diggy! Thanks for inquiring about the putrid minds that culminate to form the toilet stew that is POTTYMOUTH! We are what we call Toilet Music For Toilet People! It defies no categories and has no parameters. Whether it would be songs of menstrual stained panties, love affairs with sexy amputee women or poor, or sad little kids who step in dogshit, POTTYMOUTH is universal and not constricted in any lyrical or musical form. The inspiration truly comes from singing in the shower or on the toilet creating colorful rhymes.
Any Songs You Have Written That Hold An Extra Place In Your Heart? And If So, Why?
One song that stands out off the first disc,"Tales of the Toilet Sauce", is a hard little longjammer that we call "Buttluvver". It cleverly tells the tale of a drunk couple engaged in an act of anal sex at 3 am in the morning. Who hasn't done this with their loved ones on any given Saturday night and who cannot relate?... Another tune would be "Rock & Roll Main Vein" off of our 2nd disc, "Squeaky Girls Get The Grease". That song is about coming to the realization that one never has to masturbate ever again while there are social network sites and when there are plenty of women who follow the band across America. A real eye opener of a song for fathers with daughters!
What Are Your Thoughts On The Recording Sessions?
The recording sessions are where the blueprints and the foundations of POTTYMOUTH are laid. I look forward to recording and we are in the mid process of recording our 3rd disc, "From The Pink, To The Stink" due out in 2013! Recording means hourly bong hits, top ramen noodles, shredding killer guitar solos, peanut butter crackers, capturing stellar drums and creating the magic of the toilet sauce! All in times work presents the end result!
What About The First Show You Played, Any Memories?
The first POTTYMOUTH show(s) probably consisted of cucumbers, condoms, Vagisil and party hats. Those were the early days. We have defintely expanded and stepped up with our live show imagery since those dim years. It's much constructive now with props, foam heads, and illusional effects. The process of creation is ever learning.
So Far, What Has Been Your Best Live Experience?
The Mentors Tour 2012 w/ POTTYMOUTH, Shit, and Thrawtle. It was great being direct support for such a legendary band. It's obvious that POTTYMOUTH were influenced by particular elements of The Mentors! They were so great to us on the road and it really helped us bring the toilet assault further than we could have ever dreamed. It definitely helped to expose our music and live show to their loyal following they possess after 30 some odd years! It confirmed right there and then that POTTYMOUTH is a musical commodity and is welcomed wherever we lay trout fish.
Piss Yellow, Puke Green, Menstrual Red, Doo Doo Brown, Semen White, Pink Pussy, and Dead Blue.
Early morning breakfast vagina is a healthy morning starter. Forget Jimmy Deans, put down the Frosted Flakes, and skip the Quaker Oats. You will have a better outlook on your day....Pizza is a no no because it's all bands ever get by promoters, if they offer food. And while the gesture is considered and deemed nice, you get pretty sick of it quick. For some in POTTYMOUTH though, there is a constant diet of peanut butter and high amounts of beer!
Any Memories Of The First Concert You Attended?
I speak for myself knowing that we all have seen and been to legendary, infIuential shows each to our liking. I particulary remember smelling pot in the audience. I remember holding my mom and fathers hand amongst the crowd of alcohol fueled maniacs. I remember the drummer showing his ass to a crowd of 2000. I remember high volume sex charged rock with alot of bombs, blood and an effects driven live show.... I remember thinking that I should start learning what it takes to be in a rock and roll band.
Any Bands/Artists You Enjoy Listening To That People Might Find Surprising?
Not really. Not me particularly. I widdled down my preferences to the only the ones who matter, the ones who are speaking in tongues and who have made a dent in the world with their music. I do enjoy different genres and specific performers within them. I don't think any of us has any secret love for Disney teenage acts, cheese synth pop, or anything limp wristed.
So What Do You Have Planned For Next Year?
Alot! Over the course of 2012, we've toured twice, played a slew of gigs all over the US, recorded a Mentors tribute track and released our first hour long DVD, "Toilet Stew". With that momentum, we began recording the foundation of the new disc, "From The Pink, To The Stink" (out in early 2013). We plan to create the first video for this disc sometime after its release. Not sure what song we plan to film yet, but we have 12 new songs to choose from when we do. With a new album comes new merch. With new merch, comes a new show and that means rolling up the work sleeves and creating some new props/effects. Eventually this is all followed with what all bands must do and that is tour throughout summer and play all year long! We have enough projects lined up that can take us out to all they way to 2014, truthfully.
What Do You Want To Say To The Fans?
Thanks for the laughs and the crickets! It is you why we make idiots of ourselves for. If it wasn't for all of the Mouthfuxx and Buttluvers out there, we would be stuck in closets, hiding in porn houses, and jacking off in Wal Marts. We've gathered enough steam in the last 3 years and we are not done spreading the butter. Nor are we done spreading legs and buttcheeks. That last act is never finished. You are all Honorary Toilet Cloggers! Toilet Music For Toilet People! !
