Gotta Dance Dirty的內容!
If could form a supergroup of deceased artists/musicians, who would you pick (bonus points for coming up w/a cool band name)?
J: 很簡單!我們很久以前就想過,但從來沒有人問過我們這個問題 。我們覺得或許Nile Rodgers擔任吉他手而Bernard Edwards擔任貝斯手、 Slash為主吉他手(主要是可以展現音樂態度) Herbie Hancock是鋼琴手, Donna Summer也在主唱名單裡，Sly Dunbar是鼓手。如果我們還可以挑選合聲的話，絕對非Sister Sledge.莫屬。
Easy one, we’ve thought about this for ages and no one ever asked us: Nile Rodgers on the guitar, Bernard Edwards on the bass, Slash on Lead Guitar (mainly for the attitude!), Herbie Hancock on Keys, Donna Summer as lead vocalist and Sly Dunbar on the drums. If we could also pick backing vocals, we would definitely go for Sister Sledge.

What are your all time favorite album covers?
J: Ohio Players 的“甜”一直都是最愛!我們覺得這是多麼一個有感覺美麗的封面，從這裡就可以看出DISCO的概念想法，除了這個類型以外，披頭四的Revolver也很棒!實在有太多無法一一計數。
Honey” by the Ohio Players is a favorite! This is such a sensual cover and we feel it encompasses the whole concept of disco in just one beautiful frame. In a different style, The Beatles’ “Revolver” is awesome. There’s way too many to count.
G: 你們覺得什麼樣的酒很適合聽“Juicy Lucy”?
What types of wine pair well with “Juicy Lucy”?
J: 絕對是香檳。因為會彷彿像是在俱樂部Studio 54的感覺!!!
Champagne, soooo Studio 54 ;)
Which article of clothing in your closet can you not live without?
J: Quarles真的很愛他的牛仔外套,三年前他在一個二手市場找到然後就一直穿它, Amélie對她的衣服並沒有那麼多情感,但她絕對不能少了幾年前她生日時她的兄弟姊妹送她的項鍊,她幾乎每天都戴著它!
Quarles really loves his denim jacket; he bought it 3 years ago in a second hand store and has been wearing it ever since. Amélie is not quite so sentimental with her clothes; however, she definitely could not live without a necklace her siblings got her a couple of years back for her birthday. She wears it pretty much every day!
What are three super cheesy tracks that you’re not embarrassed to admit you love?
J: Barry Manilow – Copacabana. Amélie通常都會在PARTY裡放這首歌,但我們的朋友非常厭煩聽到這首歌，但我們很喜歡這首歌包含音樂、背景聲樂，環繞在這首歌的故事上。它特別的是令人覺得樂觀的音樂與悲劇故事的結合:蘿拉絕對是悲劇性的代表。 Barry Manilow – Copacabana. Amélie used to play that one so often in parties that our friends got extremely bored with it. We like pretty much everything in this song: the music, the voice, the backing vocals and above all the story! There’s something special about upbeat songs with tragic stories: Lola’s was definitely a tragic one.
J: Guns N’ Roses – November Rain 最不主流的一首歌且音樂影片對這首歌也沒什麼幫助,但這首歌對我們來說像是一首國歌，無論在我們懷疑寫一首歌以為已經超越它時，很神奇的是，聽到它時，突然又會覺得自己寫的這首歌又變得很落於俗套完全沒的比。
Guns N’ Roses – November Rain. Cheesiest song ever and the video is not of any help. But this song is like a anthem to us: when we have doubts about whether or not a song we are writing is over top we think about November Rain and everything becomes sophisticated, it’s magical.
J: Axel Bauer – Cargo De Nuit 它確實是非常好的一首歌，我們相信對於喜歡我們音樂的朋友有一定的吸引力!在法國,人們仍然避免坦承私底下他們喜歡這首歌，好像它是瘟疫一樣。
Axel Bauer – Cargo De Nuit. It’s actually a very good tune, we believe it could appeal to anyone who likes our music! Still, in France people avoid confessing their secret love for that song like the black plague.
