Thank you! We love to make you dance!

Q

Fair enough. Are there any foods that you have tried and found unappealing to the point where you wouldn't eat them again?


The Slants responded on 11/16/2010
A

I can't speak on behalf of everyone else (from what I gather, we're all willing to try something as long as its good...and maybe the first experience wasn't the greatest), but today I can a can of Spicy Thai Chili Bumblebee Tuna with crackers that was absolutely vomit-inducing! -simon

Q

We're fairly certain that you all eat food. Any foods out there that you despise/will not eat?


The Slants responded on 11/16/2010
A

It depends on how you ask...we pretty much like everything but I'm sure that everyone in the band would be a little reluctant to try dog meat (though it depends on the setting)

Q

I thought I heard a keyboard sound during your Luckey's set last Saturday, but there was no keyboard player. Was I just hearing things?


The Slants responded on 10/27/2010
A

You're not; the keyboards are all pre-programmed by us and triggered on stage using a laptop which is controlled by the drummer.

Q

Do you guys have any plans to bring in a keyboardist to replace Jen or Gaijin?


The Slants responded on 10/24/2010
A

We've been in talks off and on with a few different people but there are no definite plans for bringing in a live keyboardist right now. We just want to make sure that whoever comes in will be the right fit

Q

I have been suggesting and requesting a lot, Any word yet on if you will be performing at Sakuraon 2011?


The Slants responded on 10/12/2010
A

Hi,

Thanks for supporting the band! Although we'd love to perform at Sakuracon, we haven't received word from them yet. Be patient though, I'm sure they're lining a killer group of guests and they'll probably make announcements soon. For shows, as soon as we have something confirmed it goes straight to our website and Myspace page so if it isn't up yet, then that means nothing's set in stone. Again, thanks for your support!

Q

Umm, I don't have a question, but I will say that you guys ROCK!


The Slants responded on 10/03/2010
A

Thank you!!!

Q

What made you decided on the name 'The Slants'?


The Slants responded on 09/28/2010
A

We have "slanted eyes." In a nutshell, we wanted to take on some of the stereotypes made about the Asian/Asian American community and turn some of the negativity into something positive.

In other words, we're proud of having "slanted eyes", not ashamed of it! ^_^
