We told you about our favourite new band on Tuesday, and now Sammy from The Lisps is answering this week's 5Questions. Click on Sammy's answers for web-links. Readysetgo!

1. Who would be your dream person to collaborate with?

Julie Taymor. Also I heard recently that The Flaming Lips are working on a musical based on Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots with Des McAnuff. What?? Wayne, call us.

2. Last film you saw & 3 words to describe it

Morgan Spurlock's The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. It's hard to describe in 3 words, but... illuminating, meta, ballsy.

3. Best advice you've ever been given?

Dad: make sure you have SAFE sex
Mom: make sure you have NICE sex

4. What are you doing this weekend?

I'm shooting an episode of Boardwalk Empire today, and working at Pies 'N' Thighs, the restaurant that I work at on Saturday & Sunday. My brother, sister-in-law and mom are in town for mother's day, so lots of cleaning the apartment with mom, moving furniture around, throwing shit out of my refrigerator, eating, playing with my cats, and flea marketing.

5. Recommend someone to follow on twitter

I'm not a huge twitterer, but I still check in on the @BronxZoosCobra once in a while, even though his fifteen minutes were up a long time ago. If you don't know who that is, it's the cobra that escaped from the Bronx Zoo about a month ago. He was having a ball for a while, painting the town red, but has since been found. If you're into puns, like me, there are some good ones.

Thanks, Sammy!

The Lisps' awesome new album Are We at the Movies? is out on 17 May; they're having an album release at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn on 20 May, and you can pre-order & stream the album on their website, which is here. Let's have another look at their new video, shall we.
