Where are you from?
Name of band:The Rusbies (prounounced Ruzz-Bee's).
Who else is in your band?Tom Newton (Bass)
Jake Rusby (Drums)
How would you describe yourselves?We're a three-piece garage rock 'n' roll band. We like to take the whole 70's punk deliverance and bang its head together with more modern indie bands such as The Libertines.
Who are your main influences musically?The Clash, The Jam, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Fall, The Libertines.
What do you hope to achieve in music?We hope to play as many gigs as humanly possible. And release as many songs as musically possible and hopefully get a few fans along the way.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?When our friend Billy got that drunk he got kicked out of the venue before we even started playing. That was pretty funny
And what’s the moment you want to forget?Hmmmmm, maybe when we embarked on this violently long bus journey to a gig and everyone was dying for a piss. That weren't rate good.
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?Lead The Way. It's a song about a guy missing a train, seeing a pretty lady. Falling in love with her, eventually leading up to getting his eyes gouged out by her. But regardless of this he is still gruesomely in love with her and asks her to lead the way, because he can’t see anything anymore because he’s had his eyes gouged out. We dig that.
Where can we listen to it?
