The Lunar Effect take on the A-Z challenge!

The Lunar Effect take on the A-Z challenge!

November 1, 2017 |



We're intrigued by The Lunar Effect so asked the band to take on our A-Z challenge to tell us all about themselves!

A Song Which Made You Want To Make Music:

Moonage Daydream by David Bowie. Even just the first few bars make you think; “OK, lets write something”, while at the same time you know deep down it won't be anywhere near that level of genius. We actually covered it recently which you can see here:

Best Rider You have Ever Had:

Playing in Europe, you generally get a lot better riders than you do in London. None specifically come to mind, but you generally get food, drink and accommodation on top of the bands fee. That sort of rider is pretty unheard of in London for example. Bands are lucky if they get one free beer token here.

Craziest Moment You’ve Experienced In The Band:

Once we shared a packet of digestive biscuits and didn’t even have an accompanying cup of tea to go with them. It was probably when we played a private gig at the Outlaws MC Clubhouse in Essex. That was just incredible.

Deepest Lyrics One Of Your Songs Features:

That is really for the listener to decide, as one person’s deep lyric is another’s throw away gibberish. One of our new songs has the lyric ‘Ride me to Hell then I’m bound to you’

Easiest Song You Wrote:

Weaver, it was pretty much written in 30 minutes and we then played it in the set that night.

Favourite Song In Your Set:

Probably Woman, as it’s definitely the crowd pleaser of the set, even had people requesting and singing it at us at gigs.

Guest You’d Most Like To Feature On Your Record:

TOUGH ONE. MOST OF THE PEOPLE WE REALLY LIKE ARE DEAD NOW. Maybe Jools Holland would like to have us on and do a bit of boogie woogie over our stuff.

Hardest Thing About Being In A Band:

Most bands don’t earn enough money to enable them to fund the things that would in turn hopefully generate them money, establish them and give them exposure. even simple Things like recording time, merchandise, videos, PR representation and tour expenses. These things are all expensive but can really make the difference, so it’s a catch 22 situation. You gotta spend money to make money.

Interesting Fact About One Of Your Members:

Josh was once on the missing persons list after going out for a quiet drink in Camden. Obviously he did turn up again, so it wasn’t quite like Ritchie from the Manic Street Preachers.

Jokes You Have In The Band:

None that we can really talk about with outsiders.

Key To Writing a Song:

Being critical, it’s easy to like something just because you have written it. Hold yourself up to whoever you think the best songwriters are and don’t settle for less.

Longest Distance You’ve Travelled To Play A Show:

We have played all over the place, so that’s hard to remember. currently we are sticking to around London and the South while we finish up our new record.
