I thought about putting together a questionnaire to send to Craig on behalf of The Vines Official Forum. Perhaps ask questions that your don't usually see in music interviews. Any suggestions?

Ohh, good thread topic!

I am very lucky because I got to do an email interview with Lachlan and Tim and the question I wanted to ask most, as a Vines fan, is about whether or not there's peace between them and The Vines' outgoing members/old lineup. Proooobaaaably more than a little bit of a touchy subject and kind of a risque question considering the band have kept the exact reasons for the band's split very coded and quiet, but I figured, "When else will I get this opportunity?" Hoping they'll answer that question, and a couple of the other more risque questions I asked. I wanted to ask some questions that hadn't been asked in other interviews with them, which all ask pretty much the same questions, and as a fan I feel like I had some insight into the band's situation that other writers might not. I want this interview to be more satisfying to fans like me, so I risked some touchy questions.

My questions would probably come off as rude, because they're real questions, not fluffy ones like "so, you toured Japan in 2006, how was that!?" haha.

I'd want to know what Craig considers his finest work, what album he considers his worst. Possibly if he has any regrets on his material, and if he has any moments of "wow, I made that?! it's so good, i could never repeat that!"

I'm guessing you were thinking more one question each but... I have a few!

What happened to the studio outtakes and home demos album/album recorded with the old members? Were they the same thing and was it just rerecorded with the new members as Wicked Nature?

What would the second half of Wicked Nature have been called if it was released on its own?

Would you ever consider rerecording old songs like Hot Leather, Landslide, Take a Sunday, Down at the Club and Don’t Go, even just for bonus tracks/b-sides or an EP?

How many albums do you think The Vines would have released by now had you called the shots?

Now that you’re on your own label, how regularly do you plan to release albums?

Would you ever (get someone computer savvy to) put up some of your acoustic demos (that you don’t intend to record in the studio) online for the fans so that they have something to listen to between album releases?

What happened to the side project album you were working on a couple of years back?

That is all for now!

Craig, do you believe in UFO's, ghosts, or other supernatural phenomena?

The Vines, if you could make a "Best Of The Vines" album, which 12-15 Vines tunes would be on it?

Good choice!

I would also be interested to know if Craig likes Sex Pistols and/or the Ramones. And if he's heard of Irish musician Fionn Regan (if not, I highly recommend him to him!).

Oh and I'd like to know if he's into Babyshambles/Libertines!

And is Craig into stand-up comedy? If so, who are some of his favourites?

Can you post it here on the forums when it finally gets published?

I have a few questions, I guess. I couldn't put them in the interview I did with Tim because they are more based around Craig & the events/material beforehand.

1. Now that you have your own label (Wicked Nature Music), would you ever consider re-issuing/re-releasing The Vines discography in limited edition? Colour vinyl/bonus discs (Zen Demos//B-sides//live recordings).

2. You've said in a few interviews before that you have an absolute heeeeap of songs, in the triple figures. Will they ever see a release? Maybe even on a massive box-set or something?

3. Where is this collaboration album with you & Nick Littlemore? Can you describe it to us what it sounds like at least?

4. What guitars do you have at home/during recording?

5. Do you still own the green Spalt & Scala 486 from the 'Winning Days' era?

& Yeah that's all I can think of

I'm kind of 50/50 on this, since I haven't had any response from the previous art project (then again, it was a very difficult period) and how management responded towards me.

Now I definitely planning sending him all these questions. If he/management doesn't respond then it shouldn't as big of a deal right?

I'll be sending it to him, c/o Parker and Mr French at their office in Sydney. I need some inspirational stuff to type out in the cover letter.

Hmm, it's tricky I'll give you that! Did you have any ideas already, it might get the ball rolling.

I know what you mean! Anyway, I've got a Word document going but I fear it might be somewhat cheesy! Having trouble finding the tone of the letter.

Kitty, I sent you a PM of a rough cover letter. Thought it was best to only embarrass myself to one person first rather than the whole forum!

That's okay, you wrote it better than I did.


Does anyone else have any more questions to ask?

Craig, no question here. Just a thank you. Thank you for allowing my ears to hear some of the best vocal harmonies ever created. That is all.
