Matt and Kim Interview
Written by Jesse Pollock   
Monday, 26 February 2007 04:43
This Brooklyn based band is the kind of band you'd want to play at your birthday party every year... They're playing at Bottom of the Hill March 1st with Erase Errata as part of Noise Pop.

I really like seeing bands in kitchens. Hopefully that’s not foreign concept to you because that’s something everybody should experience at least once in their life. Watching a band at a house party, crammed into someone’s kitchen or living room with 50 other people is sort of amazing and gives you a closeness to the band that you lose at a venue.

That being said, Matt and Kim is my favorite band to see in a kitchen ever. Matt and Kim consist of two people (Matt and Kim respectively) from Brooklyn, New York who play the funest, danciest, goodtime songs you’ve probably ever heard. The kind of band you want to have play at your birthday party every year (unless you’re more into speed metal or something). Since they have been getting an insane amount press lately, I figured we should get our questions in there too.

// Matt and Kim on tour

I heard you guys bought a new van for touring. Is it super deluxe or what? Tell me all about it.

Kim: It is an Astro Van. I like to consider it the gangster mini van and it’s our home for many months of the year.

Matt: One time I got a charge during a tune-up related to air-conditioning, and I said "but it doesn't have air conditioning" and the guy said "I still had to work around it even if it's broken" and I said "dude, it just doesn't have it. Look there's not even a knob!” He was totally busted. Also, it is dark green, almost black.. great in the summer.

You’ve been playing a bunch of shows with Girl Talk lately. How did you get hooked up with that? Seems like a pretty great bill to be playing judging from the show I saw.

Matt: Our friend gave us a Girl Talk CD on one of our tours, we though it was so rad that we were playing it through our amps and getting psyched before we played our set. Then we heard Greg was down with our stuff and we've been really stoked to open for him.

Have you had a chance to play outside the US yet? What’s a show that you’ve played so far that’s made it into your top ten?

Kim: We haven't played outside the US...yet! We are planning on going to Norway in August and hopefully the UK after that. I finally got a passport so I am ready to go.

Matt: It's really tough to pick out one show since we've started, it's almost like asking what's a day in you life in the past couple years that made it to the top ten. There has been so many kick-ass shows that it's tuff to say. On the ‘odd kick-ass side’, one time we played at an art camp to like 300 8-15 year olds. That many pre-pubescent screams could cut bricks in half. I don't know how Hanson can still hear.

Now that you’re playing all these big venue shows and getting written up everywhere, is all hope lost for you guys playing house parties?

Kim: It is tough now to play house shows here in Brooklyn. One of the last house shows we played was so packed, that most of the time Matt's keyboards were either in his lap or on the floor. Then the cops showed up but they couldn't squeeze through until we were done playing and people filed out. They came up to us and asked who lived there. I said "Oh, I will go get them" and then I just left the party. A smart woman once told me never deal with the cops unless you have to. Even if you have done nothing wrong, always run into the woods. ..Well that was in Vermont.

Matt: We still love playing house shows and we do so across the US, but some places it can be a little tricky like Kim mentioned. We want to play places that can keep that vibe, but have decent stages. I like to be able to see a band I am watching. But yeah, we still play basements, living rooms, and kitchens.

It kind of hard to fathom how you guys can spend every single second together and now have broken up by now. It seems like you guys must be super best friends or something. Has it ever been an issue?

Kim: Matt is my best friend. We realized that on tour our only break apart is when one of us is in the bathroom. It’s kind of funny that when we get home from tour we still hang out with each other all the time.

Matt: Yeah it really is kinda crazy. I've been in cars with other people for long periods of time and it's easy not to get along, but Kim and I only really duke it out when we are lost.

Who would win in a fight? Have you ever actually fought physically for real and did Kim totally kick your ass?

Kim: I think we all know who would win!

Matt: Yeah I'm not about to start with her. She's super tough. She's snapped like 3 bass drum petals! One time she head butted me in the sternum and I think it still makes cracking sounds years later.

mk_3.jpg
// Matt and Kim at The Independent (photo: pollock)

How is it being on your label iheartcomix? I always hear good stuff about them. How did you guys end up with them?

Kim: We wanted to do something with a friend. Franki and Travis are pals with our friend Zane. At Zane's going away party here in NY, Franki saw us play and was into it.

Matt: We got together through a mutual friend and meeting first at a roof party we had played. Franki was djing in Greenpoint where there was a literal pool of blood. Well a kiddy pool anyway. Us being one of iheartcomix's first releases and our self titled album being one of our first recordings, we are all trying to figure it out together.

Are you excited about the new(ish) album? Where did you record it and is there ever any vinyl coming out (besides the 7”)?

Kim: Ha.. yeah, I guess it is now only new(ish).. If that. I am really excited about it. We had been touring across the US so many time with the same EP that it was about time to have something new. I am now ready to have a newer one. Matt and I are home in Brooklyn for a bit working on new stuff. As for vinyl... we have been talking with our friend Ian who does tapesrecords. He wants to help us get the vinyl out. We are going to hand silkscreen all the covers and each album cover will be one of a kind. I like the idea of that. It is similar to our To/From EP when we were hand coffee staining all of them. We did have to stop doing that after 3000 though. I like to think that the first 3,000 were limited edition.

Matt: Yeah I'm stoked on it being a fun summertime album (even though it came out in the winter) but I guess you can have a fun wintertime album as well.

I’m sort of a recording nerd so you’ll have to indulge me and tell me how you recorded the new album. Did you use tape or digital, computers etc?

Matt: We recorded at a studio called Infrasonic in LA and we went to a donut shop every day. We recorded to 2" tape but only had one reel, so we'd do a song or two, then import that into the computer and record back over the tape again. We did that because we wanted a "low-fi", more organic kinda sound, but it was still was a little sterile for us. Maybe next time we'll record on cassette.

// Matt and Kim at The Independent (photo: pollock)

Often times I’ll hear people talking about the fact that your shows seem forced. As if you couldn’t be that happy and excited all the time. How would you respond to that?

Kim: Wow that is the first time I have heard that. That is kind of harsh! We are on stage as we would be if you ran into us on the street. It is fun to be up there playing and I think it shows. There was this one show in San Diego where I had mud butt and you could tell by looking at me! I was so unhappy... then I puked outside afterwards. Worst show ever and I wasn't smiling! Oh, at that same show it was so hot in there that matt threw up in his mouth and swallowed it. Damn that was an awful show.

Matt: We try to be honest with however it goes, but Kim tends to smile if she's happy, nervous, or even scared... One time I took her to see Freddie vs. Jason and she couldn't stop laughing. Not because of the funny parts, but because she was terrified.

Also, a lot of music reviewers pan you guys for being formulaic and having a minimal amount of song structure. They refer to you as a party band and link all the connotations that go a long with it. Is just being a party band (I’m only half sure what that even means) something that’s ok with you?

Kim: I am totally down with being a party band. I think that sounds awesome.

Matt: I think pitchfork said "quintessential party band" and I said "tiiiiiiiiight".

mk_4.jpg
// Matt and Kim at The Independent (photo: pollock)

What’s the story with m-johnson.com and the video content? Are you (Matt) doing a bunch of video work as of late?

Matt: Well not as of late. I used too, but I have been concentrating on the band lately. I worked on music videos and did motion graphic stuff. It's cool, but it’s also a lot of work behind a computer everyday and that's not always for me.

Tod Seelie is pretty much to blame for introducing me to your music a while back (actually I think I can thank him for every band I like now). Is Tod your official band photographer now? He seems to be pretty involved in your photo/video shoots these days.

Kim: We went to school with Tod. I really appreciate how he'll come out to all our shows. I figured he would be sick of us by now.

Matt: Yeah he's been really great and supportive of Matt and Kim with his different means. Kim and I each knew Tod before we knew each other, so we date way back. He'll always get a call when we're about to do something stupid that we feel deserves some documentation.

Anything besides all the stuff we talked about that you’re super excited about right now?

Kim: Hot chocolate with candy canes in it.

Matt: T-shirts in general.

Matt and Kim are playing The Noise Pop festival at the Bottom of the Hill on March 1st. with Erase Errata.
You can normally find out more about Matt and Kim and listen to music at their website, but they had too many hits and now it's down. You can check stuff out here.

Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

 

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft
