Phil McDonald explains what is happening.
What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
Phil – Getting to record the songs live, together in one room, was the most fun part to me! Working with Linus of Hollywood is always so much fun — he keeps us on our game while making sure everyone has a great time during the process.
At what point, during writing, rehearsing, recording, did you knew you were on to something special?
Phil – I never really thought about that until the songs started coming together in our rehearsals. They were so much fun to play — I think that’s when it started to hit me that we could make a really great record out of that material. It starts to take on a life of its own once we all begin to feel out our specific parts of the songs.
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
Phil – Everyday there’s a new streaming service or method of delivery. All I know is is that Lolipop Records has been the most supportive label, and I feel like our album has found a great home with them.
She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mix tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?
Prince “I Would Die 4 U”,
Ozma “Natalie Portman”,
The Darkness “Friday Night”,

The meaning of ‘success’ has changed over the years. When will the new record be a success?
Phil – when “Hell Yeah” is the hype song for the Los Angeles Lakers.
