Counterfeit Week 7

This week's show really began last Tuesday, when we gracefully stepped into the lobby of the Grand Hyatt Hotel and gasped for breath as we saw Caleb Followill, singer of Southern USA rockers Kings of Leon stride past us (although Amanda missed this moment as her bladder begged her to go to the toilet). After overcoming this excitement (and disappointment) we caught an elevator up to the 32nd floor and waited patiently to interview Nathan Followill, drummer of the band. Our hearts were pounding by the time we were introduced to the man himself, all dolled up in tattered jeans, a white wife beater, thongs and perfectly painted black toenails. And to our surprise the hairy King looked damn fine, might we even say quite hot. So we proceeded to ask him our questions in front of a window overlooking Melbourne as Nathan tried to fight off the effects of marijuana...

And so we featured this interview on Monday night. We were very proud of this interview, and even though it was quite flippant and we were hoping for more in depth answers other than rubber duckies in bath tubs, we enjoyed ourselves so much both in the studio and as it took place in the Hyatt. If you missed the interview, which of course most of you would have missed at least part of it due to the crap state of the syn studios deciding to play the backup music as it failed to recognise we were playing an interview and thus the music of Faker drowned out Nathan's slang, then you can watch us tonight on SYN TV, channel 31 at 5pm. Don't miss it! (He's really hot!).

Once we overcame one of the biggest moments of our lives we decided to feature a mix tape of songs that you play to pump yourself up before going out on a night on the town. Quite a contrast to last week's morning after tape, but that was the point. We hear the likes of Le Tigre, Tom Vek, Franz and The Kinks, the latter of which sends Elle into a frenzy.
