It’s time to get to know Were I Blind! We set Andrew and O.C 10 questions about their musical taste, likes and guilty pleasures…
How would you describe your taste in music?
Andrew: Eclectic, everything has its own vibe from Rag’n’Bone Man to Noisia to Beartooth to Blind Lemon Jeﬀerson and everything in-between.
O.C: mmmm “Tolerant” and “free of prejudgment” just like food, be cool with any type, don’t ask too many questions and you’ll live a happy life, although occasionally you might stumble across some “junk” which after a night out with enough alcohol in your system is actually alright!
Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why?
Andrew: Although i’m quite greedy when it comes down to favourite bands I’d have to say SNOT, purely because their music has been with me through some fantastic moments in my life with some beautiful people and it always puts a smile on my face every time I slam their ﬁrst record on.
O.C: System of a Down, the drama, the anger, the melodies, that’s my thing!
Who is the best live artist/ band you’ve ever seen?
Andrew: I’m torn between PRINCE and ROB FLYNN.
O.C: The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and James Brown in London Hyde Park summer 2004
What is the one song that you could listen to forever?
Andrew: Be Quiet And Drive (Acoustic) DEFTONES
O.C: Lemon Jelly .ky. the whole album
What album, if any, was a turning point in your ‘musical life’ and why?
Andrew: ‘WWW.PITCHSHIFTER.COM‘ a realisation of synthetic and analogue can harmonise to create something so terrifyingly good!
O.C: The Black Album, I don’t think I even liked heavy metal before
In 3 words, what makes a good album or song?
Andrew: Hooks……more hooks
O.C: a good story
A festival or a gig? Why?
Andrew: Festivals, so many bands get together for a great time with the fans, with something kicking oﬀ every half an hour its like going to two weeks worth of shows over a couple of days!
O.C: Gig. Purely because I like to sleep on my bed and not be broke for a whole month thanks.
Who would be your 3 dream festival headliners?
Andrew: Tool, The Prodigy, BB King
O.C: The Doors, Bob Marley, Nirvana
Who are the best new band you’ve discovered lately that everyone should know about?
Andrew: Bleed Again can’t get enough of their album “Momentum”
O.C: “Metal-Stasis” not really into “extreme metal” but this band is incredible
What band or artist is your secret, or not so secret, guilty pleasure?
Andrew: Goldie Lookin Chain, yeah I said it, I love the GLC…….guys where you going? C’mon! Guns Don’t Kill People Rappers do? to be honest their is a lot of truth in that……. guys?…..guys???!? (I love GLC! My hometown lads! – Ed)
