27th 1999 Roma, C.S. Brancaleone
So, tonight, we're here at Brancaleone with The Donnas!
Hi I'm Donna A!
Which is the correct pronunciation of Donnas because in Italy we say Le
Oh that's more beautiful, we say The Donnas (one N)
In Italy "donnas" means something like women. Did you mean the same
when you started playing?
it wasn't intentional, it was just for fun
this is the third time that we see The Donnas live, the first one was in
(very surprised) at the Cactus Club! Really?
yeah, you were supporting the Mr T Experience; the second one was in Roma
Villaggio Globale and now, today.
you're the coolest!
...you improved a lot since the first time, you're a great band now!
It must be wonderful to be young & beautiful musicians and to travel
around the world playing: how does it feel?
Well, it's kind of sad, because we can never see the sites and never seen
the Colosseum. Actually, last year we drove by at two o' clock in the morning
and I was sleeping and two of us: - Wake up! Wake up! Here's the
Colosseum, and I say: - Oooooh!
I remember that! I took you to take an icecream...
Yeah! I remember you! I hope we can do the same tonight!
What about your new album? Which are the differences between this one and
the other two?
This one we did we wrote all the songs by ourselves. Do you guys have you
met Darril? He didn't write this album with us. Which is, you know, partially
just because a lot of people that's all they hear, you know, once the year
we had a guy helping us, it's like we lose all our credibility, I mean,
and I cannot wish that. He will be ok because he's great songwriter, you
know, and it's fun, we're friends, it's fine to write songs a time. But
ehm, it's just a kind of... it's like not, fair you know, as it seems we
can't write songs on our own...
You did a very long tourneé in Europe last spring, and now you're
back again. What about european fans?
This tour has been a lot better and I've seen and met a lot of people who
were at our shows last year, and that's cool and it's always nice to know
that people, you know, they came and it was good enough for them to come
back! And, I think a lot of people, as you said, think we improved since
last year and that's nice to hear too... It's nice because you're more
packed and people seems to know the words... Kind of a making us a good
show... Lots of the people know the the songs!
Which is the band you like more at the1
Ehmmm... AC DC !!!!
Who wrote the letters at the back of your album? Are they real or what?
Well, these four that you can read are kind of made from other real letters....
what kind of letters do you get?
Actually we get a lot of letters from jail.
it's weird that more than half of the people that write us from jail send
us lyrics. They wanna us to make it a song. (they say) "I won't ask for
any rights or anything" but you know when they get out of jail and "Give
me my money" (laughing).
Would you like to say hallo to Pogopop listeners?
Hey, this is Donna A and you're listening to Pogopop
on Power Station.
