LAist Interview: Morgan Nagler of Whispertown 2000
Whispertown 2000 is an LA based band that sounds the way a soft velour blanket being dragged across the backs of your knees feels. The band is sweet, silly, and serious about bringing you traditional rock song writing styles, with a female edge. Whispertown 2000 play a lot of LA shows, and aren't afraid to make friends with their crowd. Having been to one of their shows, I wandered in feeling like a stranger who didn't belong... And because of the band's approach to performances, I didn't just walk out of there feeling warm and fuzzy inside, but i also felt like I had made new buddies. So without any further delay, lead singer Morgan Nagler agreed to be interviewed by LAist, and this is what she said:
How long have you been a song writer?
On and off.. started out around Snoop Dogg's debut, then it was forgotten until I had no idea what was on the radio, and it has been going strong since I loved Eminem.. just a little later than everyone else found out about him..
Who are your influences/inspirations?
Bobbie Gentry, Elliott Smith, The Beatles, Notorious BIG, and Bobby (Dylan)
What new things is Whispertown 2000 working on?
Our new Record!! It's going to have a strong Death metal influence... Back to the Future, with a hint of The Great Gatsby.
How are you friends with Jenny Lewis?
I hate her stupid guts and think she's a fat cow! ...stupid coat tail rider.
