Chi-Tunes: The Noise FM

(HANDOUT )
November 28, 2011

Chicago rockers the Noise FM answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire. Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye!

What makes your live show great?

We're a trio, but we work hard to make it sound like there are a lot more than three people on stage.  We match our catchy songs and big sound with an equally energetic stage show. We want every show to be a party.

Describe your sound in five words or less.

Sexy astronauts dancing in space.

Tell us something random about the band, and why that's significant.

At South By Southwest 2010, we managed to sneak into a VIP lounge for a Muse concert and later ended up on a private bus with Bill Murray at his invitation. Not sure how significant any of that is, but we know how to have fun.

Who would you want to work with, and who would you never work with? Why?

Bruce Willis would make for a good musical collaborator. Bruno plays a mean harmonica which would add a touch of timelessness to our music. On the other hand, we would never want to work with Bruce Willis. Have you seen "Hart's War?" That movie is terrible.

If the band was a breakfast cereal, what would it be and why?

Something with a lot of fiber. Grape Nuts, maybe? We're pretty regular guys.

What's the best album you've heard recently?

It's not especially new, but we're still rocking the Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr record "Something Corporate." Their version of Gil Scott-Heron's "We Almost Lost Detroit" might be the best thing ever. We hope someone from the band is reading this right now.

What song do you never want to hear again?

We just heard that Coldplay song with Rihanna. We think we'd be alright if never heard that song again.

What is Chicago's best music venue and why?

We'll say Subterranean if only because we just played there recently. It's a humbling experience having people in the surrounding balcony looking down on you, both figuratively and literally.
