All Apologies: Jagwar Ma

01 October 2016, 11:00

Jagwar Ma's Jono Ma takes the Best Fit Q&A ahead of the band's second album Every Now & Then.

What's your present state of mind and being?

Hungry and thirsty.

What's the most overrated virtue?


What one thing have you learnt from your parents?

Don’t be like your parents.

What the most desirable quality you look for in romantic partner?

A good record collection.

What and where was the greatest meal you ever eaten?

In Acapulco, the Pachanga boys took Gab and myself to this small fishing village where the fishing boats load their catch straight into a tub, and then the fish is barbecued on an open fire served with avocado and lime. The Pachanga boys called it 'fish pawar'.

What's your most treasured possession?

My Fiesta red L-series Fender Jaguar.

What was the last dream you had about?

I was watching these giant Tetris-shaped objects floating slowly though a dark viscous substance. Almost like being under water at night but with no ocean floor or sides… like this thick and dark agoraphobic abyss. It was weird.

What's the biggest lie on your Wikipedia page?

The 'genre' section.

If you could say something to your 15 year old self, what would it be?

Learn French while your brain is still up for learning.

And finally, who would you most like to apologise to and why?

My cats, for leaving them behind back in Sydney.

Every Now & Then is released 14 October via Marathon Artists/Mom + Pop/Future Classic.
