Who are ya?


Where are you from?


How long have you been doing what you’re doing now?

5 years in various forms

Is being a musician your full time job?

Oh we wish

Are there any obvious influences in your music?

Stereolab, Can, Sabbath, Byrds

Are there any not so obvious influences in your music?

Michael Jackson, Pentagram

Any musical Guilty Pleasures? Come on you can share, we’re all friends here!

Enya – Orinoco Flow has been on rotation here for a few weeks now that summer’s coming, I don’t feel all that guilty about it though

Apart from yourself of course, what other band/artist would you recommend our readers check out?

Currently really enjoying label-cohorts Homeshake

Tell us about the defining moment when you thought ‘Fuck, yes I want to be a musician!’

10 years old, watching Josie and the Pussycats (the cool cartoon, not the 2001 remake with the lamé boob tubes)

Does what go on, on tour, stay on tour?

We are all exquisitely well behaved.

What’s your most favourite gig (as a gig goer)?

James Chance and The Contoritions at Hove Old Market about 10 years ago. He was WILD. His wife was on stage, dancing for the whole thing wearing a twin-set and pearls.

Who, in your wildest dreams would you like to collaborate with/be produced by?


Do you think it’s important for bands to have a music video to accompany their releases?

I think it is important, as long as the quality’s there.

Do you think the music video is having a bit of a renaissance? If so, why?

Maybe not in the same way as the MTV days, but I get the impression there’s still a healthy appetite for them. With no real budgets anymore bands and artists are having to be a lot more creative to make something worthwhile which probably feeds the fire too.

A lot of musicians love the idea of getting their music released on vinyl, does making your first  music video give the same feeling?

Oh for sure! I grew up at the end of the MTV generation. It’s got glamorous connotations that aren’t relevant anymore but are still totally ingrained.



Who produced the video and how do you go about choosing who makes it?

We came up with the concept ourselves and asked friends to help out with the camera work, photography and editing processes. Suki is a bit of a pro at making these things work. It’s really great to have a Suki.

Did you enjoy the process of making the video, and can you tell us a little about it?

Yeah! It was the first that we’ve made properly, with us ‘in’. We filmed at a green screen studio in Wembley and bought coloured linoleum tiles that we stuck down to make the striped floor. It was very straight forward, we just played the song in front of the camera. The hardest part was pulling all the tiles off the floor at the end of the day.

From start to finish how long did the whole process take?

Prep; about a week to get everyone organised, filming took a day, then editing took a few weeks as the people doing it had pretty full schedules.

What three tips would you give to an act thinking of making a music video?

Have a clear concept, a strict budget and talented friends.
