Our mates over at Sydney music blog Acid Stag had the privilege of chatting with Scissor Sisters‘ multi-instrumentalist, and their personal idol Babydaddy about their new album Magic Hour, and the upcoming Australian tour. He was in his pyjamas, lying on a London hotel bed, being saucy.

Acid Stag: G’day, Babydaddy. It feels really odd saying that outside of the bedroom.
Babydaddy: Well, I am in my bedroom if that makes you feel any better (laughs).

AS: What are you wearing?
BD: Nothing too exciting, just my jammies (laughs). It’s almost midnight here in London.

AS: Congratulations on the success of Magic Hour! Has the evolution of Scissor Sisters’ sound been a response to the growing popularity of electronic dance music?
BD: I don’t really think we set out to make a more or less dancier album. I really believe that it’s great songs that sell an album. I really hope that people will find this album to be full of great songs.

AS: You’re the most well known band in mainstream music to touch on homosexual themes. What problems have you run into because of this? BD: Where do I start? I think for the most part, people have been really supportive of what we have done for our career. We have definitely had problems in some places, that’s for sure. I think it’s because openly gay musicians haven’t ever worked their way into that sort of huge market. We just try to be who we are and some people clearly don’t like that, which unfortunately has nothing to do with the music or the entertainment. There’s always going to be people that just don’t like you for who you are, or what you do. That is simply the reality of things. But on the upside, there are obviously a lot of people that do love what we do.

AS: Many Australian homos are hankering for a Scissor Sisters / Kylie Minogue collaborative track. Can we make that happen?
BD: (Laughs) Well, we have produced and written songs for her, as well as performed on stage together in Melbourne actually. Maybe we could try to make that happen for you. I mean, anything’s possible (laughs).

AS: If you could dedicate that one to acid stag, that would be great.
BD: Of course (laughs). I will not forget that one (laughs). But it will be tough because we already have two people in the band that are constantly fighting over the limelight. So, having a collaborative song with Kylie could get quite messy (laughs).

AS: Do you have any surprises in store for your upcoming Australian shows?
BD: Well, it’s going to be fun (laughs). We are going to go out and have a great time, and of course we’ll be doing something special for you beautiful Australians. You’ll just have to wait and see.

AS: We were a bit disappointed that Jake was the only band member to flash his knob at Splendour in the Grass a couple of years ago.
BD: Did he? You know what? He’s naked so often that I don’t even notice anymore (laughs). I think he might have it written into his contract that he is the only one allowed to show his bits onstage (laughs).

AS: What’s written into yours?
BD: Umm, I’m the grouchy one that sits up the back (laughs). I only look grouchy; I’m not really grouchy at all.
