Little Triggers take on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists out there. Here its the turn of Little Triggers to tell us all about themselves.

A song that made you want to make music?

Roll Over Beethoven

Best rider you’ve ever had?

Cognac at a festival in France

Craziest thing you’ve experienced in the band?

Shown to our accommodation for the night after a gig to see it was a converted horse box

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

“You didn’t look left and you don’t look right” from our new single Burn, has several levels of meaning.

Easiest song you wrote?

We wrote So Fine in 20 minutes and it’s been our biggest hit to date.

Favourite song in your set?

One called RocknRolla which is a huge banger of a tune.

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Paul McCartney

Hardest thing about being in a band?

The lack of money to do what you want to do with our music

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Jay knows how to plaster walls

Jokes you have in the band?

What do you get when you cross an ice cream with a football team? Aston Vanilla!

Key to writing a song?

Putting real emotion into the heart of the song, both musically and lyrically

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

900 miles from Liverpool to an island off the French coast near Bordeaux

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Paul McCartney

Daddy Longlegs from the States

Opening for this band would be ideal?

Black Keys

Place you’d most like to tour?

Definitely the States

“Give peace a chance”. You all know who said it

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

Our new single Burn expresses that incendiary anger you feel when you discover your partner has been cheating on you

Hopefully opening the rearranged Hard Rock festival in November. It’s a sell out.

Absolutely!!! The music industry today completely sucks.

Unusual merchandise?

Mmm…. none actually. We have t-shirts, vinyl albums and singles and CDs

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

Would love to do a full on orchestral version of So Fine. It would be like the 1812 overture!

We have a diverse range of fans across the globe. It is humbling to get messages of support from people in countries that are facing far tougher problems than us.

Xrays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

Yes, Tom had the van door slammed on his hand on the way to a gig. Ended up in A & E and a gig cancelled

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