Jenn asked:
Like Live Earth, Citysol is a “green” event. I was wondering what you guys thought of Live Earth, and if you were hurt at all that Madonna chose Gogol Bordello to play with her instead of Les Savy Fav.

Tim Les Savy Fav answered:
Who’s Madonna? That chick who kidnaps African kids or do you mean that good looking chick from the 80s?

Rob asked:
Dear band, You have been slaying demons and monsters with your music for some time, a task that may seem daunting to some, how much damage to the defilers will this new record bring? And how much do you realize the importance of your quest?

Tim Les Savy Fav answered:
The new record sounds like reaching into an unfamilliar bag of holding during a melee attack against a coven of gelatinous cubes and finding an angry Shambling Mound instead of a short sword.

Chris asked:
tim, when does your beard smell the funkiest? mornings? after dinner? can’t be rosey all the time, can it??

Tim Les Savy Fav answered:
SlashBy funky I take you to mean the same way Chuck D does when he says “bring that funky beat back” – My beard smells a lil’ funky after I get a lil’ freaky – if ya’ catch my whiff. Or is you mean gross, sometimes if I eat pizza there is a phantom parmesan fume which comes gently rapping, rapping at my nose like the Raven in Edgar Allen Poe’s poem. I’ve been told that that smell is in my mind. Have you ever heard the story about Slash from G&R‘s bad smell? Apparently once while on tour the band and crew started noticing a rank smell which they tracked down to the general area of Slash. The hatted guitarist, concerned about his odor, took pains to bath very regularly and still the unpleasant fume remained. Unpleasant may be an understatement- it is my understanding (albeit hearsay) that the dude completely fucking reaked. Anyway, no amount of bathing helped the situation. Slash brushed his teeth 3,4,5 times a day. He flossed constantly. He chugged scope. Nothing worked- to be near him was disgusting. Desperate, he made an appointment to visit his doctor to see if the condition could be cured. After listening to the rockers symptoms the doctor was nearly ready to diagnose- he just needed to run one test- a simple x-ray of Slash’s face. the pictures confirmed the Doc’s suspicions revealing, way up in the Slash-man’s sinuses a sizable clot of rotting deli meat. It had been lodged there some time earlier during a heroic vomiting session after a night of chowing down on smoe back stage deli tray chased by god-only-knows how much drink and drugs. Nice one Slash… Next question?

Citysol kicks off Thursday night. Les Savy Fav play on a solar and biodiesel stage on Saturday.

Keep sending in those questions, and Tim & band will keep answering! More answers coming soon.
