Where are you from?
London and Chichester University.
Name of band:
Who else is in your band?
Mop Head on bass, Jack Hertz on drums and Jake Elliott on second guitar (sometimes, it's difficult because even though he lives in London he goes to York Uni so we try and get stuff done with Jake in the holidays).
How would you describe yourselves?
Who are your main influences musically?
Pixies, Radiohead, Nirvana, Elliott Smith, The Sex Pistols, The Beatles and Bob Dylan.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
To do it for the rest of my life, I couldn't stand working in an office for the rest of my life. I'd blow my head off.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Probably being given Q radio new band single of the week. We usually don't really take too much notice of that sort of thing but it was sort of inspiring, shows that despite the awful mainstream shit that dominates, there are people out there who still want to listen to something new and are willing to take a chance and play small bands. We are virtually unheard of, so for us to get on Q let alone get 'single of the week' was just sort of cool, which makes me feel guilty to admit that for some reason.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
So many gigs with dodgy promoters. So many awful promoters in London. Be careful. Never pay to play, they will dress it up as the gig that will shoot you into fucking superstardom and it will be dreadful. Never listen to them.
If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Erm at the minute I'd say 'Fall Around'. It's got a heavy bass and distorted guitars but if you actually listen to it but it's quite catchy. It's got that loud/quiet dynamic that we love (that we have shamelessly ripped from the Pixies). I usually get sick of singing my lyrics but I enjoy them and a few reviews have said they are hateful and bitter, which they kind of are but they are also meant to be funny. I just think it sums us up quite nicely I guess.
Where can we listen to it?
Where can we find out more about your music?
Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
Erm we've just released our second EP 'Tunnel Vision'. You can download it for free on the music tab on our facebook page or from the bandcamp. We hope to release another around Christmas - March sort of time. If you want to catch us at a show we have the events on our facebook page.
Yeah, that's it really. Thanks.
