Interview: 22 June 2010
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
Our sound has developed a lot during the last year or two. To best explain, we’ll refer to the baking of a cake. First, there is a lot of ingredients on the bench and you’re faced with a lot of decisions; how much butter? Is icing necessary? You know you can make a chocolate cake and most people are satisfied, but not everyone is a fan of chocolate cake. Some people have had chocolate cake far too many times in the last year or so, and are looking forward to an epic scone. Expect epic scones.
What can the audience expect at a live show?
Our live show is a thrilling and turbulent sonic/visual experience, not unlike the birth of a baby. You can expect some things you’ve never seen before, as well as things you may never want to see again. It is possibly the most glorious moment of your life, second only to the birth of your child. You leave exhausted yet satisfied, and one thing is guaranteed: your life will never be the same again. Sometimes Paul plays trombone.
Tell us about the Brisbane music scene.
The term ‘Brisbane music scene’ is used to describe the music created by various ensembles or solo artists in the general Brisbane area. Most ‘band’ activity is restricted to a small area known simply as ‘The Valley’. The scene thrives on original music, and is responsible for some renowned Australian artists. Brisbane maintains a strong reputation in the Australian music scene.
What’s coming up in the future?
For us? An Album and touring. For everyone else? Expensive petrol and a mortgage.
Australian music is?
We like Australian music. There are some very talented acts, and unfortunately the wider public never notices many of these. We would love to enhance the public’s perception of what Australian music is, and to show them that there is so much glorious music at their doorstep. Your ears need not travel abroad for sexy sounds. Australian music is like bananas: In abundance and mega-underrated.
