5 shocking little secrets you didn't know about Shortstraw!

2014-05-27 11:22
Cape Town - So you've seen them on MTV and you might have even seen them shaking it on a stage near you but here are some things about the crazy boys in this popular indie band that you might not have known.

1) These mostly consist of Gad's anomalies. But we'll sum them up into one. Gad is colour blind, and has stretchy skin.... and 3 nipples.

2) The drink of choice on most occasions is pudding. Pudding is a double brandy coke. Its called pudding because it's sweet and usually ends the night. Gad usually sticks with a sweet cocktail, like a delish strawberry daiquiri.

3) We make our own music videos and doccies. Super low budget except the Waterworks video that Al directed. Otherwise Al is an editor, Tom is a camera dude, and Gad, Russ and Jake have studied or have experience in the filming bizz. Russ even owns The Bioscope in Maboneng. Cray.

4) On the Good Morning, Sunshine album there is a secret track.... But shhhh don't say anything... Don't even whisper because all we want to hear is some SYNTHESISER.

5) None of us actually know who Keanu Reeves is, he was just this really friendly guy who we met in a coffee shop. He bought us coffee and told us his story and how he only really has one expression ever. Then, like a whispered slur from the lips of Miley, he was gone.
