To find out more about MidReflection, we asked vocalist Matthew Bishop (aka 2Ts) to take on our A-Z challenge and tell us more!
A song that made you want to make music?
Well that’s a tough one to start with. I couldn’t really tell you because I’ve been influenced by so many different artists it’s tricky to pin point one particular song.
Best rider you’ve ever had?
I’ll assume that you mean cider. If that’s the case then probably Magners.
Craziest thing you’ve experienced in the band?
Having some crazy chick from Thailand throwing herself on me as well as following me around after a show we did.
Deepest lyric one of your songs features?
“If you don’t give a f*** about me while I’m alive, don’t you dare pretend like you care when I die.”
Easiest song you wrote?
No song I write is easy. It takes a lot of time and dedication for me write songs which is always challenging.
Favourite song in your set?
At this present moment I’d have to say the EP’s title track “Outcast“.
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
My cousin Sutt from Temporal Detail. He’s a dope Aussie MC.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Spending lot’s and lot’s of my free time trying to write the best lyrics I possibly can.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
I suppose it would have to be Nathan (bassist) being a wrestler.
Jokes you have in the band?
One Night in Kent…
Key to writing a song?
Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?
So far it would be Milton Keynes.
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
One (of many) musician(s) who inspires me would have to be Dave Grohl for the plain simple fact that I feel he is the best multi instrumentalist around.
New band you’d recommend?
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Eminem. Generic answer I know.
Place you’d most like to tour?
Japan. Just to experience a different culture and plus I know they love to rock out there!
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
“Drugs are bad mkay.”
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
Because we felt the title track was the strongest on the EP and it would be a better name for a project than the other song titles.
See us live at?
Shows we’re booked for. Check http://midreflection.com for dates.
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Not yet. But we’ll have something soon.
Variations you’d like to do of any of your songs?
None. They sound as good as they could be.
What do your fans mean to you?
I’ll always have time for people who support our music. They’re the ones who make it worthwhile.
X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
Well me obviously lol. But I’m pretty punctual so I don’t think I’ll need to worry about that.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
