Bands with cats – Max Slade and Meow Meow
– by Cheena Jean Normandin
Your name: Max David Edward Slade
Your deal: Guitar and back-up vocals in both Lying Eyes and Tender Hearts
What’s your cat’s given name? Meow Meow
What’s it’s breed? Tuxedo
What’s your cat’s origin story?
He was the conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra until a freak accident occurred involving a drunk saxophone player and his now-crooked tail. Traumatized by the incident, the only word he can say is his own name. Over, and over again.
If your cat sees a large spider, what is it’s course of action? A tea party, of course.
What is your cat’s theme song? “Mother Of God, Drive Putin Away”, Pussy Riot.
What does your cat listen to when it’s getting ready to prowl? “Killer On The Loose”, Thin Lizzy.
What is the most formidable feat you have ever witnessed your cat accomplish?
He did the Grouse Grind in 20 minutes.
What is the last thing your cat murdered?
Our biggest house plant.
What do you think your cat does while you are asleep? Rigs elections.
If you woke up in your cat’s body, and your cat woke up in yours in a weird Freaky Friday style switch-up, what is the first thing you and your cat would do?
Meow Meow: Make a fucking steak. Cause he can do that now.
Me: Lick my own balls. Cause I can do that now.
If your cat had a super power what do you think it would be?
It’s CERTAINLY NOT mind control. I wouldn’t suggest debating this subject. This interview is over.
Lying Eyes play the Cobalt April 30 with a bunch of other great bands.
