Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview No.99

This International Women’s Day it only made sense to publish our Sticks & Stones Shitty Interview with my ultimate woman crush, Australian icon Amy Taylor, frontwoman of Melbourne pub rock/punk band Amyl & The Sniffers.

Amy met fellow frontwoman Dani Miller (Surfbort) on tour & describes that meeting as “love at first sight”. Last year we interviewed them together for our hardcover book – Shelflife Vol.1, the “hair” issue & today it is a pleasure to publish Amy’s answers online alongside this epic portrait series captured by Australian photographer Ellen Virgona.

Experience Amyl & The Sniffers live on tour throughout Australia all this month! Tour info & tickets here.
