An Interview with Irie Ploog of Kangaroo Kebab

Posted by mothereel

Kangaroo Kebab are supporting Intense Hammer Rage this Friday

Irie Ploog, the son of The Chuch's Richard Ploog, plays in surfgrind band Kangaroo Kebab.  It is Irie's birthday this Friday, so I thought I'd pad out this gig announcement with the birthday gift of a stupid interview.
Ausgrind (Ag): Tell us about your band: who is in it, what do they play, how did you all meet and what bands are you guys are influenced by?

Irie Ploog (IP): Kangaroo Kebab, Surfgrind, Tex Houdini, Heaps Gay Ray, Gold Jwrry Gold and me (Irie Shire)

Grindcore like Napalm Death, The Kill, IHR, Nasum, Flesh Parade, Garbage Guts, Discordance Axis, Fuck...I'm Dead, Exhibit A, Decomposing Serenity

Punk like Royal Headache, The Cramps, The Minutemen

Surf like The Ventures and Dick Dale

Ag:  Your Dad was in The Church back in the day, aside from being one of your only fans, how else has he helped out?  Have you used his status to get chicks yet?  If not, why not?

IP: Being our only fan, yeah I go hunting for milfs who liked the Church back in the day, none of the young sluzza's know the band.
Ag: Friday night is apparently your birthday and you're playing a show with Intense Hammer Rage.  Do you have any friends (facebook doesn't count) that will attend that normally wouldn't?  Are you going to do anything different to any of your other shows?  What do you want for your birthday?

IP: One of me best mates Matty AKA Cunthead is going down for the brutality and to kill off his brain cells, I was considering playing naked for this one, just this once, It would be great if someone could get me the mastertapes of Blood Duster's new album KVLT.

Ag: Your knowledge is unmatched about some stuff and you're heaps awesome, what's the best band to name drop to show that you're more underground than anybody else?  What do you like about them?

IP: That's gotta be Garbage Guts, one online demo, no facebook, no metal archives page, no photos of them pretty much anywhere, I'm glad I got to see them live before the singer went to the states, also Exhibit A because their one and only album is so fucking brutal and groundbreaking but no one knows it, oh and Super Fun Happy Slide too fuck they're awesome.
Ag: What would you like to hear in a band to make them your favourite?  What's your favourite Sydney extreme band currently and why are they so good?  What's your favourite extreme Australian band and why are they so good?  What's your favourite extreme band in the world and why are they so good?

IP: Extreme, different sounds, insane vocals,killer guitar riffs,a standout snare sound etc.

This is a hard question to ask, it'll change all the time.

by currently I'm going to assume you mean newish band well I'll go with Brazen Bull, their new release is a winner of brutal technical stop/start grindcore

Favourite Extreme Australian band will allways be Fuck...I'm Dead because they are extremely brutal.

There's too many extreme bands in the world to choose from, but I'll go with Nasum because they were amazingly crushing when they played Sydney this year.

Ag: Anything else you'd like to say?

IP: Come down this Friday to see Kangaroo Kebab, come fucking early and no smoke breaks because we will probably only play for 10 minutes (no way we're doing 30).

also Nathan, can you please fix up my spelling and grammar because I am tired and cant be fucked doing it my self.

Ag: No.
IP: Yeah thanks
