One Question Interviews: Queers

Joe Queer (The Queers)

SPB: What is the weirdest venue you've ever played a show at?

Joe: Hands down the weirdest club I've ever played was Cafe Mokka in Thun, Switzerland. It's run by the freakiest dude I've met in many a year. A guy we call Mokkaman. One of the gayest fuckers in the world. Makes my Japanese wife seem like a lumberjack. He's as odd as they make 'em but a hell of a cook. He has a little mincing houseboy named Mario. He'll clap his hands and say "Mario! Mario" in a high voice and some Gollum-esque creature (obviously on the gay side of the fence himself) will come running to do his bidding. What those two are up to at night I'd rather not muse on.

After we played we were hanging out and Mokkaman asked Lurch if he wanted any chocolate cake. Lurch said he wasn't sure and Mokkaman told him, “Midnight's the best time for chocolate cake.” That was enough for us and we hightailed it outta there before we got buttfucked or something. The whole place is full of ‘60s toys and weird pictures and drawings and...stuff. Strange as hell. It's basically what a gay club would have been if the Nazis had won the war. Well worth a visit and I recommend it highly. Tell them Joe sent ya!
