Remy Zero performed ‘Perfect Memory’ on Last Call with Carson Daly on Thursday. Carson also talked briefly with frontman Cinjun Tate who blamed the band not breaking out on the charts because of not enough payola — which drew some laughs. Read on for a transcript.
Carson: I’m here with Remy Zero, who I’m thrilled is on the show to and you’d have talked for the last couple of years, and every time I read something about this group, the phrase “on the verge of superstardom” is always mentied how frustrating is it?
Cinjun Tate: Extremely.
Carson: And it’s been like three or four years now. I mean, what is it gonna take justo get it ove the edge there, ’cause you seemingly are right there?
Cinjun Tate: A lot more payola maybe.
[ Laughter ]
Carson: Yeah, that’s a good sign. This song that you’re about to do, “Perfect Memory,” you did on “The Smallville Show.” You’re finding maybe a newfound audience through that television show. How is that?
Cinjun Tate: It’s great. It’s good to be opened up to people who’d normally not get to hear your music.
Carson: Right, and some bands might have a problem with it, t you guys don’t.
Cinjun Tate: No, I have no issue with that whatsoever.
Carson: All right, well, good, I’m glad you’re here. Put your hands together. Performing “Perfect Memory,” Remy Zero.
