Interviewed by
James Gorman - 01.21.10The following is a mini interview of generic questions that we posed to all bands that wanted to answer:

James Gorman

1. How did you get your band name?
It's my name

2. How did this band get started?
I started singing and writing songs at the age of 16. Somebody then heard one and said, "You're alright," so I kept writing. A few years later (aged 22) some housemates heard my songs and persuaded me to do a gig.

3. What bands are you influenced by?

I used to sing and play a lot to Oasis and Beatles songs to begin with. More recently I am taken away with Bruce Springsteen after watching his live show at Glastonbury.

4. If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would it be and why?

Beatles - Legends

5. If you were a furry, what animal would you be? Why that animal?
Chimp - So I can swing around from tree to tree and be a slob.

6. Why should people listen to your band?
Because I have put a lot of effort and time into recording an album with songs influenced by my real life adventures and events.

7. If you were chosen to be in Guitar Hero/Rock Band, what song would you want in the game? How hard do you think it would be to five-star on expert?
A piece of piss with any. I'm lacking these mad solos and 5 minute outros.

8. If you won a Grammy, who would you thank?
Other bands for letting me support them on my way to glory!

9. If you could change something about the music industry, what would it be?
They would visit little areas in the England where nobody knows about to find me. Apart from that I would take away some of this useless hip hop pop shit. Sack lots of radio djs and create radio stations to play solely music. Good music.

Getting lost every time.
