New MGMT interview by Le Journal De Montreal (Translated from French)
Thanks for translating :)
What is your favorite vegetable?
Ah, I love vegetables, I love cabbage, carrots and grilled asparagus.
What is your zodiac sign? Do you believe that?
I’m Aquarius, but I still don’t know whether I believe in it or not haha.
If you were on a desert island and your best friend was dead-
Oh! He’s dead? This is a very, very sad story
Yes, he’s dead, would you eat a bit of them to survive?
Yes, haha, I think my friend would like that.
Then that would be cannibalism
Mm, no problem.
How much would you eat?
I think it depends on the friend, but I know that I would never eat the brain, that would be bad idea.
What if by eating the brain, it merged all his knowledge with yours
I think that they have tried that before, in ancient times, but it didn’t work. But if you want me to, I can try. If I were to do it, I would do it with a cup of good coffee, because I love coffee.
What was the last CD you bought?
CD? Mm, I’ve definitely downloaded some illegal things lately, hahaha
Hahaha yes. I’m not sure why I’m smiling. But the last CD was, what was it I bought? Oh! I bought a very good vinyl collection of Faust The Faust Tapes called. It’s really good.
What is your biggest musical influence?
We have many, and I dont think there’s specific band that is the greater influence, but I’m definitely influenced by Arthur Lee of Love, the 60s band, and I think Suicide, Alan Vega and Martin Rev are in my top two.
