So when you were learning to play your instruments, writing your first
songs, appearing in your first shows, did you ever think for a minute that your
music would appear in a videogame?
Baby Dave: We didn't really think that far ahead. We get off on writing
music first and foremost so we try to focus on that and if amazing things like
this come up then we take it as it comes.
GT: Are you gamers? What types of games do you like to play?
Baby Dave: Yes we all 'game' to varying degrees. If we're playing
together it's Fifa or Rock Band usually, or anything competitive and violent.
GT: Your music will be appearing in The Sims 3, a game that is known for
having its own language. Did you have to translate your lyrics into Simlish
Baby Dave: Dude, we love sims and all but thats really a touch too much
GT: What was it like singing in Simlish? Was it hard not to slip back
Baby Dave: No, really, we can't just start singing in a new language.
We're a rock and roll band! English is the mother tongue of rock and roll!
GT: Any plans to perform the Simlish version at one of your shows?
Baby Dave: (!) You're not getting this are you?! Ok, ok. If you can send
the lyrics translated for us, we'll see. Just for you.
GT: Another game youll be appearing in is Fight Night Round 4, actually
appearing in the game. So what was that like?
Baby Dave: I'm not sure we're actually going to be in the game! I think
asking people to accept a 5'9'' skinny englishman as a genuine challenge to Mike
Tyson in a boxing ring is pushing things too far! That would be awesome tho. I'd
beat him at Bass playing, no sweat.
GT: Your music is in one game, youre in another game, whats next for
you in the world of gaming?
Baby Dave: Well, we will continue our relationship with Artwerk/E.A and
look forward to rocking some more games! And also we will be spending many hours
on UFC undisputed when it comes out.
GT: Any plans to bring things full circle and write a song about gaming?
We could certainly use some better songs about gaming, considering the standard
for the genre is Pac-Man Fever
Baby Dave: I think you're onto something! I can see it, we'll do the
music, you freestyle all over it in Simlish like a thug-life-homie-geek!! Call
GT: Anything else youd like to say to our game-playing, music-obsessed
Baby Dave: Yes please register with our website or myspace:
GT: Thanks for your time!
Baby Dave: No probs, thank you too
