THE SILLIES

You smell something???

Why this name?
Well, it beats the sh*** out of names like "Kid Rock" or "Weiner Wrap". We named our band after the sounds people make when they stick together while making whoopee, especially in a bathtub.
Do you play live?
We've played live and near-death at CBGB in NYC, Spaceland in LA, the Los Angeles Colusseum (Warped Tour), The Horseshoe (Toronto), Hart Plaza (Detroit), San Francisco, Chicago, Cleveland, etc. We'd play more often, but it's easier just to sit at home and play with ourselves (musically).
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Hopefully, it will wipe it out completely.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes, but we wouldn't use our real names. That's where they get you!
Band History:
The Sillies formed April 1977. Their debut was second billing to The MC5 with Destroy All Monsters (Ron Asheton of Iggy & The Stooges plus MC5 bassist Mike Davis)as the opening act. The Sillies toured the U.S. and Canada, played shows with The Damned, The Dead Boys, Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers, The Cramps, and many others.
Last year's Christmas show had 225 slamdancing Santas, go-go dancing Santa's helpers, and reindeer strippers. See the video at www.thesillies.com!
Your influences?
The Byrds, Roger (Jim) McGuinn, The Stooges, Iggy, The MC5, NY Dolls, Roxy Music, Ultravox, Wire, The Damned, Brian Jones' Rolling Stones, Buzzcocks, Beatles, Velvet Underground, Wheeler & Woolsey.
Favorite spot?
Anywhere but here (Detroit, Helltown USA).
Equipment used:
Epiphone Firebird VII, Epiphone 1958 Flying V, Epiphone ES-335, Epiphone SG, Italia Monza (with humbuckers), Campbell-Maccaferri "SC" guitar with three humbuckers (www.campbellguitars.com) piano, organ, and a Mellotron, for that "Moody Blues" sound.
Anything else...?
"The Sillies writhe with a reckless energy shared by Detroit's most revered rockers (MC5, The Stooges). Their music swaggers with a New York Dolls-like panache and is as raunchy as Iggy Pop's reputation."
