Zombie Prom Q&A / 1995
Hello there! Who and How are you? Hello. I am Matt and I sing songs for 1995.
Who is your father and what does he do? Wayne Offord is my father and at the moment I suspect he is at home watching television, gardening or cooking. He's a bit of a jack-of-all-trades... but a master of few.. joking Dad..Please don't cut off my inheritance.
What has the band been up to since the last full moon? We have been writing and recording what will eventually be our debut album. We also just released a new single, Love Your Ghost, which now seems very Halloweeny of us.
What is your favorite Halloween related experience to date? Last year's No mag & Lonely Hearts' Halloween party is definitely up there. I went dressed as Beetlejuice and came home looking more like a Betty White self portrait.
Have you decided on what you might dress up as to Zombie Prom? Another one of the Golden Girls would be an obvious first option but failing that I might go as a member of The Chills or The Clean.
Who are the Prom King and Queens of your lives? Having a healthy sense of self worth, I'd say I fill both these positions in my own life.
Who is the most naturally scary-looking person you can think of? I can't think of one particular person but there is something about a lazy eye that freaks me out a bit. I feel like a terrible person saying that.
What are you most afraid of? Sharks! Truthfully. My drummer will tell you. I turn into a scared little girl at the mere sight.
Who from your band is most likely to give trick-or-treaters fruit instead of candy? I don't know about giving them fruit but Dave is likely to give them a clip around the ears for not saying ''Please". He's got a Scotsman's love of good manners.
Favourite horror movie villain? Dirk Mofford.
Favourite Zombie from a movie? Any zombie from a movie is good. I prefer the kind that can run as opposed to ones that just walk.
Favourite Vampire from a movie? The Grandpa from My Grandpa is A Vampire. If you haven't seen this NZ movie you should. Excellent cameos from the singer from Pluto and Nick Harrison.
Favourite Werewolf from a movie? Michael J Fox from Teen Wolf. Excellent depiction of teenage chest hair.
Favourite Halloween holiday spot? Transylvania
Least Favourite scream queen - Jamie Leigh Curtis, Neve Campbell or Jennifer Love Hewitt? All 3 are pretty bad. Does this guy count? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOubPWGUhQo
