RGM Introducing – Walt’s Frozen Head

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BE AN ARTIST

My first musical obsession was Pink Floyd. The idea of making strange arty music sparked something in me.  Is there a more fun way to make a living other than music? Even being a gigolo isn’t all it’s cracked up to be (so they say)

INTRODUCE ALL THE MEMBERS

On drums we’ve got Sam, bass and BV’s Jamie, keys, and samples (plus all the artwork and videos) Melissa, and Myself, Alfie on guitar and vocals.

WHAT QUESTION ARE YOU SICK OF BEING ASKED

I don’t like being asked what annoys me because every time I answer it brings out my inner Alan Partridge, not terribly rock n roll is it?

WHICH ONES THE BIGGEST PAIN IN THE ARSE

Me, I’m a natural born worrier.

WHO’S INSPIRING YOU AT THE MOMENT

I’m rediscovering Robert Wyatt.  There’s a relatively unknown artist named Edward Penfold who’s great.  There’s a William Shatner album called ‘Has Been’ and it’s fantastic (I mean this without any hint of irony)

IF FANS COULD REMEMBER ONE THING ABOUT YOU WHAT WOULD IT BE

“Well that was strange”

WHAT’S A USELESS TALENT YOU HAVE

 I can name of all the characters from the 80’s sitcom Hi- De- Hi (my dad constantly watches UK Gold)

WHAT’S THE MOST FUN YOU’VE HAD ON STAGE

My honest answer is I can never remember being on stage; my head goes to a different universe.

WHAT’S THE WORST MOMENT YOU HAD ON STAGE

I decided to wear a huge fur coat for a gig in July, that didn’t end well

TELL US SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED ABOUT

I’ve worked with Mariah Carey.

TELL US A FUNNY STORY FROM BACKSTAGE

The time I ordered chips and got cauliflower cheese, oh the echoes of forgotten laughter

NAME A FOUR PIECE BAND MADE UP OF LEGENDS  – WHO WOULD BE IN IT

A bananas combo featuring Wayne Cohn, Ty Segal, Ariel Pink, Connan Mockasin , Jermaine Clement and Eric Idle.  Let them fight amongst themselves regarding who’s playing what.

The conventional answer;

John Densmore  – drums

Peter Hook – Bass

Robert Fripp  – Guitar

Vince Clarke – Keys

Bowie – Vocals

Comedy answer:

Kim Woodburn – Bassoon

Lorrain Kelly – castanets

Mary Berry – Tea chest bass

Anne Hegerty – Theremin

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE GOING INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Always carry Paracetamol.  If you don’t love it don’t do it.

HOW DO YOU THINK THE GOVERNMENT HAVE LOOKED AFTER THE NIGHT TIME ECONOMY

NO! Remember that at the next election.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF

You don’t need to rely on other singers, sing thi songs thi sen

WHAT MAKES YOU STANDOUT AS A BAND

The willingness to experiment/be daft

RIGHT NOW WHAT’S PISSING YOU OFF

Hello Mr Partridge…Well a certain radio show that won’t play our song and of course, the Tories, the Tories, the Tories

TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN YOU ALL HAD A PROPER REYT LAUGH WHILE YOU WERE ALL TOGETHER

A hot summer’s day when I nipped out to get everyone an ice-lolly and came back with a ham n cheese baguette

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SONG TO PLAY LIVE AND WHY

Walt or Mungo Take A Ride

TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW SINGLE

The song is loosely based around the urban myth that Walt Disney’s head was cryogenically frozen to be brought back to life in the future

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD

Yes, the band evokes the smell of a rubber novelty Halloween mask. Good day to you sir.
