k: hello! i'm very excited doing this interview, - i never interviewed puppets, and neither aliens (notwithstanding i feel an alien and someone told me puppets have a life more exciting than mine). Then i'm having a double experience now. Anyway, i was looking at the cover picture of Your fantastic cp.. on the car bonnet there are some 'humans' drawn.. are You dangerous? Do i have to say to people to stay home when You are in the arounds? Elks: oh yes we are Very Dangerous and must be Obeyed At All Times or not. k: ok, the question is easy: why playing music just downhere on planet Earth? Elks: well you could not hear it if we were on the moon or something unless we had Bigger Amplifiers. k: What does music feel like for an alien? Elks: like a happyface lollipop in a reverse gravitation unit but louder. k: 'Our kind of universe' is my favorite one. Extremely sweet. Homesick? Do You plan to come back home somedays? Elks: we are not sick of home yet so we will probably stay here at least until we get our royalties. k: How is the typical day of a puppet-alien?

k: Is Janice considered sexy between male puppet-aliens? Elks: we are not boys or girls so it is hard to say. k: What's love for an alien-puppet? Elks: many balloon aminals. k: Then, "pink" is the universal colour for girls? Elks: no but blue is the universal colour for Smurfs. k: What kind of groupies do You have? Elks: policemen k: Can You explain me what does Your name [Elks Skiffle] mean? Why this name? Elks: the Elks is an earth aminal with 4 legs eyes on stalks and a washboard we are a bit like that apart from the legs and washboard. k: Would You barter Your flying saucer with a ford? Elks: we could consider a Nebulon Warblecraft and a big bag of Chocolate Chewing Nuts perhaps. k: I'm lazy, so, please do Your-self a question and then answer. Elks: what is stuck in the bottom of a boat and sings white xmas - Bung Crosb [Bing Crosby, lounge music icon, i guess - ndk]. k: Have You ever been discriminated because of Your nature in the musicbusiness? Elks: no that is because we are Very Dangerous. k: What kind of Music do You like listening to? Elks: we want some records by Sooty [Harry Corbett's handpuppet, very popular since early 5o's BBC programs - k's note] the famous english puppet and TV show but Sooty has no voice and we have not found any sometimes we listen to Lawrence Welk who has a voice but does not sing we think it is a conspiracy. k: how many humans need does it take to screw a light bulb? Elks Skiffle Group: we have a copy of Mechanix Illustrated How-To-Do Encyclopedia if that helps. k: what's the perfect moment/atmosphere to listen to Elks' music? Elks Skiffle Group: approximately star time 02.047.03 in the vicinity of Quackulon 4 from a Wub-Wub Orbiter. k: Say something scary to our readers. Elks: Wee-ooo Wee-ooo Wee-ooo.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
