Super73 take on the A-Z challenge!

April 20, 2017 |



Most inspiring musician you've experienced?

 Rob: As cheesy as it sounds, these 3 fuckers. The ideas that we can generate by bouncing ideas of each other is fantastic.

Merk: That Feels. That chicken skin goose bump feeling when it all comes together.

Adam: quite a few tbh can't be arsed to say their names.

New band you'd recommend?

 Merk: UK:ID. Go see them live. Jump, Sweat, Repeat.

Andy: The Struts

Adam: chase Atlantic.

Opening for this band would be ideal?

 Andy: Biffy Clyro

Adam: inme

 Place you'd most like to tour?

Rob: I’d love to tour Japan, I think they’d love us over there.

Andy: The US for me.

Merk: Yeah, I’d agree with that, and I’d like to go. Never know, might come back a superhero.

Adam: I'll agree with Andy.

Quote you'd like to pass on to our readers?

 Andy: "Just when they think they have all the answers, I change the questions".

Merk: The ONLY Constant is Change.

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

 Merk: Wellllllll, it’s a kind of political rant in someways, without being too affiliated with either of the sides. It’s from the point of view of humanity, it’s called Monkey See Monkey Do as the saying refers to the learning of a process without an understanding of why it works, which is how I believe, a great deal of the populace get through life. Things come and go, news gets reported, you take what you take and you do what you’re told. Like Mimicry, with little or no concern for the consequences. The most damaging phrase in language is “It’s Always Been Done That Way”

See us live at?

 Andy: We may or may not be announcing something very soon!

Merk: Keep your eyes peeled, we’re coming out to play ahaha.

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

 Merk: What like, banging on tree stumps blowing into the arses of frogs? Those Old Days? Or like, maybe the Medieval Lute players? I don’t know, it’s subjective, but we humans have a tendency to look at the past with the rose tinted glasses firmly in place. And also I guess, you’re experiencing music for the first time back in the day, you’re making experiences with soundtracks.

Andy: I agree with Merk. It is usually a common thought that the past was better than the present, or infinately better than the future we are about to experience.  In some aspects yes to the question, but in most cases, the best is always yet to be found.

Unusual merchandise?

 Andy: Shewee

Adam: Andy overbuying S73 mugs, I mean I love a mug but come on!

Variations you'd like to do of any of your songs?

 Andy: Orchestral versions of the whole set, much like Metallica's S&M album.

Adam: acoustic. I'd like to play around with a stripped back set see where it all came from.

What do your fans mean to you?

 Andy: Without people who appreciate what we do, there is simply no we.

Rob: Everything really, people who support us and help us reach the ears of new people are the best. We played a gig a while back and this bloke spoke to me after. He was a hardcore Death Metal fan, listens to nothing else, he said that after listening to us he feels like he should give other types of music a chance again. High praise indeed.

Xrays or any other treatments needed for band related injuries?

Andy: I have a muscular-repetitive strain injury in my back and constantly have issues with my knees, according to the opinion of my chiropractor this is because of drumming. War wounds and damn proud.

Adam: repetitive strain from playing the D

You're late for a show, whose fault is it?

 Merk: We’re pretty good at this these days, we like to be there so we can get involved before we get involved.

Adam: it ain't ever me or Rob. Not mentioning names but just saying.

Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

 Rob: A pissed off Rhino.

Merk: Monkey and a Frog. Yeah you know don’t you.

Andy: I'm with Merk, those that know... know.

Adam: apple pen? Innit sure I understood.
