A song that made you want to make music?
“Kiss The Girl” from The Little Mermaid
Best rider you’ve had?
Tap water. Free of charge from the bar at every gig. It’s a God send!
Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?
Traveling 100 miles to a really important show, to realise we forgot half of the drum kit. We reckon Dave must have been pretty drunk still from the night before!
Deepest lyrics one of your songs features?
“There’s not a thing that can save us”. This could be interpreted at many levels, but it’s definitely one of our “deepest” lyrics.
Easiest song you wrote?
Goodbye David. It’s around 10 seconds of pure rubbish!
Favourite song in your set?
Every Time Breaks. We’ve all loved that song since the day it all came together!
Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?
Right Said Fred.
Hardest thing about being in a band?
Having to deal with the pressure of fame. Only joking! I guess it would be trying to juggle the band with other things we have going on. This isn’t the only musical project we have going on between us, either.
Interesting fact about one of your members?
Dave is Eminem‘s brother.
Jokes you have in the band?
As you can tell from our answers so far, we’re a very serious band – joking’s not for us!
Key to writing a song?
Longest distance you’ve traveled to play a show?
I would walk 500 miles, just to be the band that walked a thousand miles to play where we haven’t before…in all seriousness, London is the furthest we’ve gone so far. But we’d love to go further afield ASAP!
Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?
Every single person we’ve seen get up on stage and perform, inspires us in some way.
New band you’d recommend?
Time of The Mouth and Insomniacs. Both local bands on the scene, and blooming awesome! We would also recommend Sick Pins – a new ska punk band we played with not long ago!
Opening for this band would be ideal?
Goldfinger…or Sum 41….oh wait New Found Glory. We love a lot of bands from this era!
Place you’d most like to tour?
Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?
Richard Dawkins: “We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born”.
Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?
Absolute laziness, in a nutshell.
See us live at?
Tuesday 9th July, The Sunflower Lounge (Birmingham) – supporting The Bottom Line.
The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?
Not particularly – we’re believers that all music at any point in time means something to somebody! Perhaps a few more people used to randomly show up at local shows though!
Beer mats; T-shirts; CDs; Stickers; Wensleydale.
Variations you’d like to do for any of your songs?
We’d like to do our entire E.P on the kazoo.And then sped up times 5. I think I may have to give that a go soon, you know *haha*!
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean the world to us – and then some! They make everything we do so worth it.
X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?
If Dave ain’t wearing a plaster by the end of a show, then he ain’t working hard enough!
You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?
It’s Chris’ fault. If not then Dave. If not then definitely Rich.
Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?
A hyena. Anyone who has seen us live would expect this answer to be a giraffe, but that would just be rather silly now, wouldn’t it?!
