One Minute With The Gooch Palms


One Minute With The Gooch Palms

Emilie La Pietra

Having just recently finished touring with all-time legends Violent Soho, our favourite two-piece Newcastle party animals, The Gooch Palms, will return to humble old Adelaide this September to shake things up and celebrate the release of their brand new album 'Introverted Extroverts'.

The talented duo have launched their very own record label 'Summer Camp Records' and remain to keep their mischievous, Newcastle-punk sound at the forefront of their new album, while continuing to make some goddamn catchy tunes.

We took this opportunity to spend ONE MINUTE with Kat and Leroy to ask them all the questions you would clearly want to ask.

First thing’s first, what’s the story behind the band name?
Just two random words! There’s no big story here.

Describe each other in 3 words
Kat on Leroy: Hilarious, Doofus, Talented
Leroy on Kat: Loud, Obnoxious, Sweetheart

Describe Adelaide in 3 words
Ad, El, Aide

What bands / artists are you both currently listening to?
Right now we’re literally listening to Phantom Planet do the intro to the OC. Classic tune.

If someone wrote a biography about the band, what do you think the title should be?
“Dicks and Golden Drumsticks”

What are you favourite local hangout spots in Newcastle?
Goldbergs, The Lass, Bar Beach

Discounting music, do either of you have any hidden talents?
Leroy: I’m nice to animals
Kat: Putting up with this guy ^^^^

If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
Pizza or tacos

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional with whom would it be?
Leroy: Kelly Slater
Kat: Pamela Anderson

And finally, who would win in a fight between Batman and Spiderman?
Batman. He has more money. He wins at life.

Did that clear some things up for you? Thought so. Don't miss your chance to party with these legends. They'll be hitting Jive on Sept 1, along with Beverly Chills and Tough Boys. Nab some tickets HERE or follow the event on Facebook to keep up with all goochy-news.
