We first met Bangkok Cobra at their high school when we were scouting for virgins for the Sex Issue fashion story (V1N5). The singer, Rikki, started coming by our office to Xerox posters for their shows and gave us their demo. It was recorded over one mic, so it sounded a bit crap, but Rikki sings about Jack Daniels, which is cute because he’s only 16. And even their fans are gorgeous boys and girls in ridiculously elaborate, trashed outfits. They’re all in that phase when you take hours to get ready to go out, drink half a bottle of vodka before you get in the club where you make a million new friends in three seconds and end up sleeping on each other’s sofas for the next two years. VICE: What did you do this weekend, Rikki? Rikki: Saturday was my friends 18th birthday, and after we’d finished rehearsing he bought beer. I threw him a party at my house and it was crazy. There were so many dressed up people and graffiti dudes who painted our rehearsal room. A table got totally fucked so my dad wants me to get like €1,000 to pay for it and I’m completely fucked and I don’t know what to do. My dad is pretty angry with me, but it’s almost like it’s worth it because the party was so good. I got fierce black outs. But at least we looked nice. And now we have a lot of beer cans and shit in the rehearsal room and we’re planning on doing a cool alcoholic photo shoot with all the garbage. I’ve got a lot of mystery pix too, because I was so out of it I don’t remembered stuff that I took pictures off. The party was for two days, and people from my band ended up in the bathtub both days. Did you go in the bathtub too? No, I don’t like taking baths, I just sort of dip half my body and then I go “Naah.” ELIN UNNES
