Quickfire Questions #3: French Horn Rebellion

By on Friday, 1st April 2011 at 12:00 pm

Brooklyn-based French Horn Rebellion have just played in Hong Kong for the very first time Wednesday night (the 30th of March); they played with MGMT on this one date. The Hong Kongers seemed to have enjoyed the show a lot and it was a successful debut. I caught up with the brothers David and Robert Perlick-Molinari and had them answer our Quickfire Questions…

1. What song is your earliest musical memory?
David: My mom playing Scott Joplin’s ‘The Entertainer’ on the piano.
Robert: ‘Go Granny, Go’ – Jan and Dean (Editor’s note: I think he means ‘The Little Old Lady from Pasadena’.)

2. What was your favourite song as a child?
David: ‘Surfin’ USA’ – The Beach Boys
Robert: ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ – The Righteous Brothers

3. What song makes you laugh?
David: ‘Seven Stars Surround the Moon’ – Savoir Adore
Robert: ‘Tip-toe Through The Tulips’ – Tiny Tim

4. What song makes you cry?
David: ‘Nobody Knows’ – Tony Rich Project
Robert: ‘Enigma Variations’ – Edward Elgar

5. What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
David: ‘It’s Only Love’ – The Beatles
Robert: ‘The Luckiest’ – Ben Folds

6. What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
David: Said he only listened to music to cheer himself up, so he left this one blank.
Robert: ‘New Year’s Day’ – Brothers

7. Which song (any song written in the last century) do you wish you’d written yourself?
David: ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’ or ‘God Only Knows’ – The Beach Boys
Robert: ‘Giant Steps’ – John Coltrane

8. Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
David: Ernest Hemingway
Robert: Burt Bacharach

9. If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
David: I’d probably be in medical school.
Robert: A writer.

10. If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why?
David: ‘The Art of Fugue’ – J. S. Bach. It has so many levels of beauty and an eternity to figure it all out. Plus, that stuff never gets boring.
Robert: Fritz Reiner with The Chicago Symphony playing ‘Ein Heldenleben’.
