If I Dropped By... with Tarra Thiessen of Sharkmuffin

This week I posed my "If I Dropped By..." question to Tarra Thiessen of the Brooklyn based band Sharkmuffin.  The band recently released the second single, "Mermaid Sex Slave", from their debut EP She-Gods of Champagne Valley. If you haven't had a chance to check out Sharkmuffin, they're a raw pleasure filled treat; see for yourself at the bottom of the post.

Quirky NY Chick (QNYC): ... and brought a friend who didn't know your music, what song of yours would you play for them and why?

Tarra Thiessen (TT): "Mermaid Sex Slave", because it's my grandma's favorite Sharkmuffin song (seriously!). (Editor’s note: Grandma is obviously a very cool and awesome lady!)

(QNYC): ... what song or album would you feel I needed to hear before I left?

(TT): I'd probably make some coffee and keep you there for awhile....

(QNYC): ... would you proudly display the cheesy music in your collection or pretend someone left it by mistake?

(TT): Proudly display it. I probably wouldn't even be in a band if it wasn't for Good Charlotte, early 2000s screamo and Katy Perry.

(QNYC): … Kung Fu Fighting, Disco Duck or Macho Man

(TT): Macho Man

(QNYC): … sushi or Mexican?

(TT): sushi

(QNYC): ... what's one thing you must have in your refrigerator at all times?

(TT): Sriracha
