Crumplehorns Q&A

Your name: 
David (Korg/slide guitar).

Where are you from? 
Scarborough, UK.

Name of band: 

Who else is in your band? 
 Matt (bass), Barrie (guitar), Tim (vocals), John (drums), Steve (sax).

How would you describe yourselves? 
Fast, catchy, anti-coalition, post-punk with occasional medieval, folk and blues overtones.

Who are your main influences musically? 
The Nightingales, The Fall and Captain Beefheart.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Communicate ideas and energy. Raise money for charities and good causes.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Recording our first single this year, though we're hoping to trump that with our first gig, supporting The Nightingales on John Peel Day 2013.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
None so far but, personally, every moment of my first marriage ;)

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
It would have to be our new single 'Simon Says', a troubling depiction of a relationship going wrong through jealousy and possessiveness. Our songs concern personal struggles such as alienation, depression and loss, as well as wider environmental and social issues.

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
Our first single ‘Simon Says’/’Harold's Eye’ will be released on Robert Lloyd's Big Print Records on October 25th 2013.
The launch party, which is also a celebration of Keeping It Peel Day, is a free gig with The Nightingales at The Spa Pub, Scarborough, UK.
All profits from the single and donations on the night will go to Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale MIND.
