Psychedelic Rock and Roll duo Le Blorr is one of those rare occurrences only possible when catchy songs, a good sense of humor and a laid-back attitude combine. Florida based, Adam Winn and Chris Hess have spent the past year productively promoting their first releaseBim Bom, playing endless amounts of shows and touring with the likes of Matt and Kim. For the rest of October, they will once again be hitting the road (including a stop in New York City for CMJ). We caught up with drummer Adam Winn to ask a few questions about their weird nicknames, making their way on the music radar and what’s next for the guys as they set out to release new material. 

Interview By: Rachel Sutton

Fault: Everyone probably asks this, but you both have band “nicknames,” what are they and where exactly did they originate?

Adam Winn: The names actually came from a dream… Chris and I dream travel and one night, a few years ago, I was hanging out with Marc Bolan. I knew Chris would want to hang with him so I traveled over to his dreams and got him. Later Freddy Mercury showed up and together they told us we need to play Rock and Roll music and gave us the names Cookie and Hot Damm. 

Fault: How did you hook up with the management of Rick DeVoe? 

Adam Winn: Rick contacted us after a few different people had told him to check out our music. He came and saw us play when we were out in California and we hit it off with him and his partner Chris Georggin. They are such rad guys! We are stoked to have them as our managers. 

Fault: You’re audience seems to be very diverse, but what type of listener do you (consciously or subconsciously) think you appeal to the most?

Adam Winn: Well we played at a hotel in Montauk, NY recently and there was a group of little kids dancin’ and cheering the whole set, so maybe we appeal to all kids ten and under? Haha… I think we have a diverse audience because we don’t stick to one particular genre of music. We just play what we like, and we like quite a variety.  

Fault: What would you like to achieve this upcoming fall season (music-wise)?

Adam Winn: This fall we’re hoping to tour a bunch and possibly set up a residency in NYC.  

Fault: You have been performing new songs as of late, when is a new release expected? 

Adam Winn: We have enough material to put out a new release, but we are unsure of when we will do so… We just need to make the time to officially get back into the studio. Hopefully early 2012. 

Fault: What’s your writing process like? 

Adam Winn: We don’t really have a set process, but we usually start off with a guitar riff and then add drums. We’ll jam with that until we get a basic structure down then start adding loops and lyrics.

Fault: Give us a fall playlist of five songs: 

Adam Winn: Hmmm that’s a tough one….

1. Fools Gold—Surprise Hotel

2. Warpaint—Bees

3. Radiohead—Talk Show Host

4. Caribou—Jamelia

5. Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White—Two Against One
