The Lineup Of Stereosonic As Guessed By A Mum

"Music from another (surreal) world (space)!"

Posted on

I showed my mum a bunch of acts from the recently released Stereosonic lineup and asked her to tell me who she thought they were. These are her suggestions:

Me: Okay, first off...What is Stereosonic?

Mum: Um, I'll have a guess...

Me: Yeah that's fine!

Mum: ...Music from another (surreal) world (space)...

Me: Okay...

Me: Stereosonic is the name of the music festival we are talking about.

Mum: Oh right, yeah.


Mum: Looks like a Dan.

Me: Dan who? What does he do?

Mum: Dan Shapiro. He is very obviously a poet.

Me: Yes, he's very poetic. His name is Skrillex. He is, like, a dubstep guy. Do you know what dubstep is?

Mum: Nope...I think I will fail this test.

Me: What do you think it is?

Mum: I suppose it's does give it away with the 'step.'

Mum: Um...No idea. But I guess he is a muso. He plays bass.

Me: His name starts with a 'T'.

Mum: Tom.

Me: Tom who?

Mum: Tom Sharp.

Me: No, his name is Tiësto.

Mum: One word?

Me: Like Cher.


Me: These guys are a duo. What do you think they're called?

Mum: Eyesore. One word. Two guys.

Me: "Eyesore?"

Mum: Yep.

Me: Close. They're called Disclosure.

Mum: How many people are you talking to for this?

Me: Just you...Ok. I'll give you a hint for this one. They are named after a Chinese dish.

Mum: Egg Fu Mong.

Me: I have never heard of that.

Mum: They obviously sell jewelry and drink beer.

Me: From the look of things, yes. But remember, this is a music festival. They make music. They're called Peking Duck.

Mum: Of course, now I see it in their faces.


Mum: How about we just call him ZEN.

Me: "ZEN?"

Mum: Yes.

Me: His name is Steve Aoki. Boring old Steve Aoki.

Me: Okay, who is this.

Mum: Should know this one!!!

Me: She is a girl, obviously.

Mum: I bet it's a one word about Kitty?

Me: Ah, okay. What does she do?

Mum: Singer.

Me: Kitty the singer?

Mum: Yes.

Me: She's a DJ. Her name is Nina Las Vegas.

Mum: Oh well...I like her eye shadow.

Me: I'll let her know.


Me: Who's this?

Mum: Some silly girl who forgot her pants.

Me: Hmmm....

Mum: Her name is Rainbow.

Me: What does she do?

Mum: Writes a fashion blog.

Me: At a music festival?

Mum: Oh.

Me: She's a DJ. Her name is Tigerlily.

Mum: Okay...she has a great hair colourist.

Me: What does he do?

Mum: Muso, plays guitar.

Me: Alright and his name?

Mum: Adam Penn...I don't know I'm feelin' pretty stupid.

Me: Don't feel stupid you're not expected to know! His name is Duke Dumont.
