Goner: Who will be buried first?
Here's what the Eleni Binge interviewing Goner looks like. Scott (vocals, keyboards) responds first, followed by Chris, we think. Beloved Binge is opening up their record release show at the Pinhook this Saturday 6/29, followed by the most excellent Wood Ear.
EB: How do you hope Goner looks from your death bed(s)?

S: I teach 4th Grade in Wake County, so if I HAD to get a tattoo on my face, I would just go ahead and get the words "FIRE ME FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS" on there. Or maybe Aubrey Plaza's name inside a heart. We're supposed to be together, you see.
EB: What's behind your new album in two sentences. (I'll try: amazing?)
S: Faking The Wisdom

. (Especially you
, Aubrey. I'm sitting by the laptop, staring at a candle, listening to Disintegration
and waiting for your email.))
Another unidentified member of Goner, whom I believe to be Chris, responded thusly:
EB: 1, 2, 3 Questions
Chris-ish: I believe my answer to all three questions would be:
As Roxana, Youtube commenter, said, AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
