May 1st 1999
Andi: The June 1999
Snapher tour will be the fourth for Snap Her. The best responses that I have noticed the
most have been, Italy, Hungary, Poland & the U.K.
Andi: Playing in Snap Her
is fun work, most people who have joined this band have had the misconception that I would
just be one big, everlasting party. That becomes a problem with me, because I have busted
my ass to get Sanp Her where it is the the punk rock map, so if someone is gonna join the
band, they are gonna have to pull thier own weight. For example, if you decide not to help
pay for t shirts, badges, or stickers, don't come up to me later on and ask "where's
my cut?" Also, some have been shocked that no matter how hunover they are on tour,
they still have to move equipment, everyone does. Too many people want all the glory
without the hard work. Elaine, however, is unlike the others who were only a brick on my
Andi: Ah yes, My friend Erin Gravina invited me to appear with her and her maternal unit on a tv talk show called "Forgive or forget". The topic was about how supposedly one cannot suceed in life looking as punk as we look. So I went on the air to prove them wrong.The air time will be listed on the Snap Her holtline as soon as I find out! The number is 323-960-7604.
NRA: Since this interview we
learned that the show will air May 10th on channel 13
Elaine: Yep. I don't know
how much everyone knows about my accident, but I'll give you a quick run down. 1) 1 Broken
lower left rib 2) 1 crushed pelvis (4 separate, but equally painful breaks) 3) 1 broken
sacar (small lower vertebrae) 4) 1 broken Iliac (smallest lower vertebrae) - the last two
items = 1 BROKEN ASS! 5) 1 lacerated spleen 7) Severe head trauma 8) multiple ugly cuts
and bruises - especially on my hands (They went through the windsheild).
Andi: I hope so, I keep myself rather busy writing short stoies for fetish magazines such as "Whip & Chains", "Encore", and "Extreme Fetish" I also provide photos to go along with them.I also sometimes do videos specializing in the B &D, S & M arts, as well as operating my own dungeon space. I sometimes even do performance art. This line of work is not as lucrative as is once was, however it seems to make me happy. I am now in search of female submissives, for fun and for videos, any interested parties should contact me at 310-287-BOOT (over 18 please)
NRA: Its been a while since the second album Queen Bitch Of Rock 'N' Roll, which is still doing well, what are the recording plans for the next CD?
Andi: This year we are working on new songs for our y2k full length. The label as of now is still unknown we are searching for the right one.
NRA: So whats the story with Elaine on stage with the buissness and a mop at morcombe in the UK? We printed the photo in our catalog.
Andi: Elaine & I were on stage during the Business set at Morcambe Dome(holidays in the Sun) when someone handed me a mop since there was so much beer and sweat splashing around the stage. I quickly handed it to Elaine, and she did the job! I had to document this historical punk rock event.
Elaine: Yes, well we were a couple of weeks into the tour and "tour decay" was beginning to settle in. For those of you that don't know what that is, it's the condition aquired when you've been cramed into a confined space with too many smelly people for too long and you're hungry and dirty and uncomfortable and premenstrual and you still have another 100 miles to go and then you have to play and do it again. It gets to where the persons involved will either blow up in a rage, have a mental or emotional breakdown or get silly. I got silly. The Morcombe Dome was filled to capacity. The Business came on and we couldn't even see them from the floor. We decided to try to catch the set from back stage. Unfortunately, back stage was packed too. We were kind of bummed out because there was no place with a clear view. In despair, I mentioned to Andi that the only place with a clear view would be ON STAGE. Andi's eyes lit up and off we went. At first we were well hidden behind the enormous amps on the stage, but as others caught on to our idea, it became more and more crowded and soon we were plainly visible to the audience. At one point, a guy in a suit was pointing at a big beer spill on the stage and walks over to Andi and hands her the mop (I guess he thought that she was with the maintenance crew or something). After we stopped gigling about it, I suggested that Andi go out there and do "her job" (start mopping). She wouldn't, but I would. I grabbed the mop from her and went out there. Andi just happened to have a camera with her (she wanted pictures of the Business) and she got a few of me while I was out there.
NRA: The photo's are hilarious. These beefy Brit guys up front and you behind moping.
Elaine: I started playing
it up and joking around when I realized just how many people were getting pictures of it.
It was like a photo shoot or something. I did my best Check Berry and a few other
"mop substituted for guitar" poses. Then Mick gave me a menacing look and that
Andi: Yes, I would like to thank all of our wonderful fans all over the globe for thier support, especially the ones in Europe/U.K. who are the most appreciative of our hardwork.

Elaine: Nope. Ta.
