the story behind nick allbrook's leaving
nick: kev i dont want to play in tame impala anymore
kevin: k i'll just ask cam [calls cam] do you wanna play bass
Interviewer: Did you have any odd day jobs before dedicating yourself full-time to music?
Nick: I don’t know about odd. I worked as a checkout girl register for awhile, and then worked in the kitchen, frying pretty reputable Italian restaurant chain with a bunch of guys. I got fired from there for eating a shrimp. Well, I actually get fired; they caught me eating a shrimp, yelled at me it and then when I went for lunch I just never came back (laughs).
Jay: Yeah, I only ever worked in fast food…
Dom: I studied a business diploma— (rest of the band laughs)
Kevin: I worked in a mine once.
Kevin: Yeah. It was pretty crazy, we went down about a kilometer.
Interviewer: What would you be doing now if you weren’t musicians?
Nick: I guess go to uni. That seems to be what people do (Jay nods in agreement).
Dom: I’d like to go back to school as well.
