Jeremy Marou and Thomas Busby, Busby Marou
What makes an Aussie rocker good in bed?
Jeremy: We're more charming. I'm an extremely good guitarist and am very good with my fingers.
What's the best way to ask out an Australian musician?
Thomas: Tell them that you play piano, and you'd like them to sing to you at your house.
Jeremy: That's so romantic of you, Tom. I'd say, tell them you play guitar or you're a singer and that you want to sing them some songs.
Make a sweeping generalization about what it would be like to date an Australian musician.
Thomas: You'd be probably lonely because we're traveling consistently and are a long way away from home. Nevertheless, you'd be treated like a queen if you were dating one of us. That's true, isn't it, Jeremy?
Jeremy: Well, if you were dating our drummer, you would not be a queen; you would be a concubine!
What are your groupies like?
Thomas: In Australia, we've got a broad range of fans. How do I describe it? In Australia, we call them "ABC listeners" — very conservative listeners — and young girls and boys who just want to party. It's a broad range. It makes it pretty fun for us, during and after the gig.
From your touring experience, which city or cities have the hottest people?
Thomas: That is an excellent question! Austin was pretty good, wasn't it?
Jeremy: Yeah... It depends what you're into.
Thomas: We were there in Austin for SXSW, and there were very beautiful women there of all types.
Jeremy: I like a bit of booty, and there was booty. I'll tell you where they're not the best: it's a place called Dubbo, in Australia. It's a little country town where you don't want to go. [laughs]
If Busby Marou were a sex position, what would it look like?
Thomas: Three minutes of pleasure. [laughs] We'd be lazy. Missionary.
This guy that I've been seeing seems really great: smart, funny, and ambitious. The thing is, he always drinks when we go out, and he drinks a lot. What should I do?
Thomas: Well, I don't want to be a hypocrite! [laughs] I think you'd have to tell him straight — "I don't like it when you drink too much" — and see how he handles it. If he cooperates, then he could be the real deal. If he doesn't, then he's probably going to be part of the Busby Marou band.
