"We've got a new singer," Adema drummer Kris Kohls says enthusiastically. "And we're way better than we were before; it's like we're rejuvenated. We're more passionate and more energetic. We're having a great time playing."
Right, right, sure, but what about the girls? How wild can we expect them to go? Like, are we talking totally hog wild or what?
"Well, only like three out of the last 20 gigs have been part of this Girls Gone Wild thing. But we're really happy with Planets. It's the first time Adema has gotten to produce a CD ourselves, and it really came out great. It's got a lot of different sounds, from heavy to acoustic, and it's a big step forward for the band creatively."
Kohls then moves on to the lyrics on the band's new CD, particularly a song called "Better Living Through Chemistry" that takes a somewhat Tom Cruise-esque attitude toward prescription drugs. Clearly, he's cleverly sidestepped the previous question, the one about all those young, nubile girls and their various departures into wildness, partial nudity and Sapphic experimentation.
"At the show, the promoter, like, brings in some local girls and then sprays 'em with water," Kohls says.
"I mean, it's cool. We're definitely not complaining."
Well, hell, that's a relief.
