Inside The Rockers Studio: Les Savy Fav, Holy Fuck

Today we launch a new feature on Stereogum. We’ve refrained from standard Q&As until now because they’re usually boring. Instead, this is a short and sweet riff on Bravo’s Inside The Actors Studio. You’ve seen it: at the end of every episode, pompous host James Lipton asks the guest to answer ten really stupid questions based on the Bernard Pivot questionnaire. I thought James Lipton made ‘em up. Apparently it’s Bernard Pivot’s fault.

So here’s INSIDE THE ROCKERS STUDIO. Same questions. The responses can be as serious or flippant as the artists want. For this inaugural edition, we got Les Savy Fav and Holy Fuck. Both bands will be performing this Sunday at the Stereogum & Ice Cream Man-curated Pool Party at McCarren Park.
