Good vibez from peace-loving aliens and professional fun havers, yo!
Today's Take Aim participants are New Beat Fund. Well, band bassist Paul Laliberte took aim. We walked away from the ring, totally crushing on him and NBF. By the way, New Beat Fund's new album is Sponge Fingerz.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Good ViBez, tunez to soothe the grind of daily life. California sunshine to brighten your darkest daze. Peace loving aliens.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Sitting around pondering how we should probably be playing music...
Producing and engineering records, making graphics, teaching philosophy, movie sound design, who knows. Maybe drinking coffee or going for a nice jog. Famous Actors.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Heshin Up, graphic arts, surfing, reading, writing, dancing like hooligans and electrifying dance floors, drinking margaritas at Cabo Cantina, smoking churros, eating burritos on the beach, professional fun having and girls.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
'Sunday Funday,' a true story by NBF...
While we were writing songs for Sponge Fingerz in Topanga Canyon, we decided to take a Sunday off and cruise down to Venice beach. First stop, Cabo Cantina 2-for-1 drinks. We happened to meet up with a few lovely ladies and proceeded to hang with them. Ran down to the beach, had a few make out sessions going under the palm trees, went skinny dipping then went to our friend's house where his friend did Kermit the frog impersonations and we began singing 'unexpectedly drunk on a Sunday' over some basic chords. We left that crib, hopped in our drummer's Cadillac, drove down the PCH, went to Jack in the Box and laughed at how impossible it was for us to order for about 10 minutes. We went home, crashed, and wrote "Sunday Funday" in about 15 minutes the next morning. Bam. #RunOnStoryTelling
Now that is how you spend a 'Sunday Funday.' Finish this sentence: New Beat Fund is the artist that...
... Pretends to know nothing.
Professional fun havers? We. Are. So. Down.
