Nine Dart Finish Q&A

Your names:
Andy Proudman  (Drums)
Christopher Mobbs  (Guitar, Vocals)
Daz Yardley  (Bass, Lead Vocals)

Where are you from?
Across the fair city of Birmingham, UK.

Name of band: 
Nine Dart Finish.

How would you describe yourselves?
We are a three-piece that make a lot of noise, on and off the stage. Three lads with a big ambition to make music fun again.

Who are your main influences musically?
DazI have a wide range to be fair, mad on Queen love harmonies and key changes. I’m also a sucker for melody and catchy hooks. You could say anything from The Kinks to the Pixes.

AndyI’m into heavy drums and soaring bass-lines. Anything from drum and bass like Raiden to bands like Rage Against The Machine, but I also have a yearning for melodies and this is satisfied by stuff like Weezer and Motown.

ChrisFrom my first love of early Britpop and indie, I’ve developed a love for anything Radiohead and Massive Attack. There’s also a place in my heart saved for the classics, which really just ends in my admiration for David Gilmour, what he does on a guitar makes me tingle.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
The same as any other band, we would all love to step out of a time travelling phone box on to a stage surrounded by dry ice smoke and lasers. Having said that we would settle by making a decent living by doing what want to do and that’s giving it large in our band.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
The release of our debut single ‘You Don’t Bother Me’ was a proud moment and the making of the video was a proper laugh. We are in the process of making the video for our single and we are looking forward to seeing how that pans out.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We don’t really regret anything, as everything is a learning curve in this industry. However, there was a time mid-gig where Andy managed to ruin not one, but two bass drum pedals one after the other. He doesn’t mess about.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
This question has stumped us because our style changes from song to song, as it’s our debut single “You Don’t Bother Me” would have to be the one, but this is just one side of what we do. For example the song that we enjoy playing the most right now is “Can’t Get You”, as it rocks!

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music? 
Here are the links you are ever going to need to know.

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?

We will be releasing our second single Fabio Overture in May once the video is finished. If you want to be the first to know about this, then check out the Website and give us the thumbs up on the social media feeds.
