Arty, fuzzy and punkish - The Funs, Philip Lesicko and Jessee Rose Crane, visit CHIRP's studio to chat with DJ Julie Mueller. Jessee muses about her life peaking after touring with The Breeders last year, they discussed how naivety is responsible for the artist's residence they're building in the funeral home formerly owned by Philip's grandparents, and detailed why it was important to move downstate to continue to create art.
You can expect My Survival (a double LP) from The Funs this fall, out on Manic Static. The Funs play the Empty Bottle on Saturday, April 11th.
