Addicted To Noise: Let's have some style tips. You've had your hair like this for four years?
Dave Pirner: Sure
ATN: Do you do anything special to it?
Pirner: No ma'am. Absolutely nothing. I guess I used to wash it with Ivory soap. Now I just use whatever's around. It's kind of gross, though. I don't really reccommend it. It's just low maintenance, and it stays out of my eyes. That's what I like about it.
ATN: So you don't see an end to this style?
Pirner: There's an end to everything.
Moving on to Johns...
ATN: People must tell you that you look like Kurt Cobain... because of the hair.
Daniel Johns: Yeah, the hair, but I'm getting dredlocks, so it doesn't matter.
ATN: How often do you wash your hair?
Johns: I just can't be bothered washing it, because then your hair smells like flowers and that stinks.
ATN: But I love that smell! So, really, how often do you wash your hair?
Johns: Once a fortnight.
A fortnight? ATN is totally grossed out. That translates to every two weeks, for us stateside. In an attempt to end on a more, uh, hygenic note, ATN is pleased to report that Prince Valiant-lookalike Joey Ramone uses Aveeda shampoo with Maddes root for warm red tones and cherry bark conditioner, and does so quite frequently.
