Absolute Radio - Band of The Week May 16th 2011. Interview by Sarah Champion, Absolute Radio.
"You don't see - Loved this atmospheric electronica track with rocky undertones. Chosen as The Sunday Night Music Clubs unsigned band of the week." - Sarah Champion, Absolute Radio
How did you first get into playing music?
Playing drums in my school rock band - Love Or Confusion. I played kinda like Animal from the Muppets. Lots of Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, that kinda thing...
"Heavy Blues. Heavy, Heavy Blues. With Muppets."
How long have you been playing?
Guitar; at least 10 years or more. Singing; ....hmm... I guess howling away since birth!
How would you describe your sound in one sentence?
Heavy Blues. Heavy Heavy Blues. With Muppets.
What makes you unique?
Solid musicianship first, then sacrificing it all for energy and showmanship. And just being upfront and totally unlike math rock/emo/ glee, etc. And truly liking your own music and getting off on it instead if being worthy and knowing.
If I hear another math rock rock band with great hair doing stop-starty songs I will throw my toys from the pram.
I'll wear a mexican wrestling helmet one night, and not the next. Actually be suprising for your audience, treat them like a lover. Any good relationship needs work. I'm digressing now though.
What are your goals at the moment?
Finishing the album and scoring a tour and distribution.
What are your main musical inspirations?
To play awesomely with energy whilst looking like we don't care. We're there most of the time :)
"I'll wear a mexican wrestling helmet one night, and not the next. Actually be suprising for your audience, treat them like a lover."
If you had to listen to one album for the rest of your life what would it be?
The more I think about how to answer this question... the further I get from making a decision. May I never have to listen to one album for the rest of my life.I'd choose nothing. Ok..ok.. uhm. Morphine - Cure For Pain. Dig it up.
What do you get up to when you’re not making music?
Sleep. Go online. Sleep.Travel. To H'america.
What do you think of Unsigned Band Review?
Bands need all the help they can get so keep doing what you're doing. It's all to the good.

BBC Radio "In-Session": June 2006
"Loop sampling multi-instrumentalist builds hypnotic textures..haunting song vocals over a lo-fi beat... this is soulful electronica.. Like a cross between Imogen Heap and DJ Shadow.."
