SBC (SickBitchCrips) Interview with Katherine Araniello / 12 February 2014
Araniello: Your latest music video is called ‘Lazy Baby’, can you tell us a bit about it, and the inspiration behind it?
SBC: The song is about our terminal condition and the tragic monotonous life we have to suffer on a daily basis. We are very ‘different’ and bearing the burden of being genetic defects takes a lot out of us.
Araniello: Are you looking for sympathy?
Araniello: The lyrics come across as perhaps a tad sickening.
SBC: We were diagnosed with a crippling and life threatening neuromuscular disease but we never grumble, we persevere with our dismal and sorrowful existence.
Araniello: It must be a terrible fate to be poorly delicate little petals.
SBC: Each day is ten times worse than the last.
Araniello: What are your aspirations?
SBC: We aspire to be average Gemmimas and cross the tracks without a palaver.
Araniello: If you were in the doghouse what would you do?
SBC: Lots of charity gigs.
Araniello: How do you think the public see you?
SBC: Green vegetables. Cabbage, Broccoli, Runner Beans, that sort of thing.
Araniello: What phrase best sums up SBC?
SBC: Healers of the World.
Araniello: What is your life expectancy?
Araniello: Would you describe it as fatal?
