Listen to the new song from The Greencarts – One Night
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God said let there be ROCK. And God created the Greencarts. And they were good…not great…but pretty good. Prettyyyyyyyyy…prettyyyy Good’ – Larry David (A representative of Larry David will neither confirm nor deny the validity of this statement.)
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We have a battle against other bands at the Hawthorne Theatre on the eve of March 24th. After that victory is secured, we will move on to producing a double album this summer entitled Cardiac Arrest/Carte Life.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Our song One Night is about that first night. It’s about Adam cheating on Eve with some hipster chick at the bar. Except it’s not … Or is it?
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
When people hear us on the radio they realize, “Wait a minute, that’s not Justin Bieber. Those are the Greencarts! But they should totally do a song together.” Our songs being better than the Biebs separates us.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Choosing which producer is less likely to murder you, Suge Knight or Phil Spector, is difficult because their both brilliant and wouldn’t stop bugging us. They both desperately wanted to produce a sure thing. But in the end, we went with P.Diddy because we wanted our shit to pop and Peter Jesperson was too busy.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Well, at a photo shoot for our last album cover a fight broke out between band members about whether you need to utilize the penis flap in your boxers when you pee. This debate, which was caught on camera, nearly depleted the world of its most valuable non-renewable resource, The Greencarts. Luckily, at the 11th hour, the band reached a compromise and vowed to forever wear shorts. Now all we gotta do is pull our junk out of the bottom of one of the leg holes when nature calls. Problem solved … on to the next one.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Sharks. They nearly ruined a gig we had in Atlantis playing at Aquaman’s daughter’s sweet 16. Oh wait, that was actually a gig in Atlanta where the only person in the audience was this dude dressed in a teal unitard with his fiancé blow up doll. Come to think of it, that was a dream I had last night. So in summation, sharks are cool but beware of pants.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Stop playing music so we can be famous. Also, listen to The Greencarts, you might like us.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Running naked through downtown blaring our music on boom boxes has been surprisingly successful. Incidentally, our biggest fans are policemen who keep showing up these gigs, asking us to take off our clothes. But our favorite way is selling our soul to the devil and playing sold out arena shows for Saudi oil tycoons.
Where can people visit you?
At our homes. But it would be weird if we gave you our addresses right? Also, you can find us on the BookFace at:
