30 Seconds With Kinky

Rocks Off burned a few Internet wires to see what we could learn about Monterrey, Mexico's Grammy-nominated rocktronica veterans Kinky in 30 seconds.

Rocks Off:What is worst song in the world, and why?

Kinky: Macarena" is the worst song because it was so 'F-ed' out... or maybe "Mambo #5"... yuck!

RO: What is the best lyric in the world? Please include title and artist.

K: "All you touch and all you see, Is all your life will ever be" -- Pink Floyd, "Breathe"

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?

K: Try and get out of the way... once in Italy we had tomatoes thrown at us, I was able to kick one back to the crowd and got the biggest cheer of the night.

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play, and why?

K: Live Aid, the first one... so much talent on two stages... Queen killed it!

RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?

K: A lot of tortillas.....probably a house for Mom.

RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?

K: Comfy socks.

RO: If you could canonize another musician who would it be, and of what would they be the patron saint?

K: Paquita la del Barrio, she would the patron saint of all women.

RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statue future generations erect in your honor?

K: Here lies Kinky, a band that made you dance the night away.

Kinky dances the night away Saturday at the Engine Room with Yokomono and Antonio Estevan Huerta, www.lunaface.com.
