They claim to be the long-lost love children of Prince, but while Johnny, Tuppa and Dixie may not be lithe and effeminate sex gods, they do have enough live electro synth flavour to back up their claims to Funk Royalty lineage.

WHEN DID THE BAND FORM-
In early 2006, Dixie and I were originally playing as an acoustic duo, but we stumbled across Tuppa playing guitar in Hyde Park and we haven’t looked back since.

DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC IN A COUPLE OF SENTENCES:
Sounds like that feeling you get when you’re in a dark corner on the dance floor and a girl has her hands down your pants!

WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT LIVE MUSIC IN SYDNEY-
Live music in Sydney is ripe and ready to eat. We are a part of a new revolution in Australian music and there are more and more people wanting to see their favourite acts live. Nowhere in the world is the indie electro scene taking off like it is here. We are very lucky to be amongst it!

WHAT’S ANNOYING ABOUT LIVE MUSIC IN SYDNEY-

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST EXCITING THING HAPPENING IN MUSIC AT THE MOMENT-
Dance and rock are becoming a unit and all genres are being considered for venues when two years ago they would never have had a market. The club scene has embraced rock to be its long lost brother.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AS A PERFORMER.
Playing a Rising High show with Spit Syndicate on the Easter weekend of this year. There was a line out and down George Street and there was no room to move! Anyways to cut a long story short big Dixie was jumping up and down like a mad man and the poor guy hadn’t fastened his belt. Sure enough his pants fell to his ankles and he found himself in the awkward position of playing keys to the end of the track and letting the whole of Rising High know that he’s not so big after all! The funny thing is that the track we were playing was Leave in a Minute with the SS boys – I can assure you that the big man/small man left that show in a minute.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AS A SPECTATOR.
Watching the Juggers play live at Beach Ball 07. We had stolen a bunch of plastic milk crates and placed them smack bang in the middle of the dance floor with the intention of getting a bird’s eye view of the show. The crates only lasted a couple of minutes until they broke into a thousand pieces and became projectiles for the university crowd. A combination of testosterone, substance abuse and driving synths turned that show into 45 minutes of pure plastic mayhem.
