Q: How old are you? A: We are not old or young we are like rock'n'roll zombies. Q: What were your 'day jobs' before you were full-time Electric Eel Shockers? A: We made teeth and houses and adverts - but it was not quite right. (It should be said Morimoto used to be a professional fisherman - something he seems strangely shy of admitting as he writes a column for Japan's largest fishing magazine under the nom de plume 'The Rock'n'Roll Fisherman'. His approach to fishing is much like that of his performing - run around and make a great deal of noise. He claims the approach works, but as he's now a full-time Electric Eel Shock man, perhaps he suffers from the fisherman's curse of exaggerating the size of his catch.) Q: Why are you called Electric Eel Shock? A: The big fish from the north told me ... you know about the big fish? Q: Is America your home now? A: Yes - but only this week - our home is on the road. Q: You've toured the world - which country has your greatest fans? A: Maybe the UK. Q: What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever done? A: Japanese fans are very quiet, American fans are very crazy, but in New Orleans fans like to fight and they are happy to show it! Q: Hong Kong people have never seen you before, what's the best way of describing your music to them? A: Just have fun! Q: A lot of HK people like soft rock love ballads by Canto-pop stars - how are you going to appeal to them? A: NO. I love hard rock! Q: You're described as 'mind blowing live'. Why? What do you do that's different from other rockers? A: Maybe not so different - but we have fun a lot! Q: How are you going to cope with the Hong Kong noise restriction of 110 decibels? A: What is noise restriction? (This is a cheering answer for Hong Kong audiences. Like their frenetic predecessors The Ramones, EES may not be known for their lucid interview skills but the band certainly know how to generate ear-splitting noise.) Q: What's the craziest gig you have ever played and why? A: Roskilde was the greatest because so many people we have never met who went mad forever. (Electric Eel Shock headlined the Roskilde Festival in Denmark where more than 7,000 Scandinavians spontaneously chanted 'EES ... the new Metallica'.) Q: Why did the Roskilde fans chant 'EES - the new Metallica'? A: Fans are the only ones who know! Q: What music are you listening to on the tour bus? A: Black Sabbath and lots of CDs from bands we meet on the road. Q: Who are your idols? A: Our mothers and Ozzy Ozbourne before he met our mothers. Q: What is your ambition for EES? A: To make all fans happy and to tell Ozzy not to care for our mothers.
