Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide to that music is a thing for you?

Sam: I made that decision when I was about 10 years old, after watching Motörhead at St George’s Hall in Bradford. Funnily enough it was a bassist that made me want to play the guitar (Lemmy), and that’s not because he put me off bass… he just made me want to rock. 

Sean: I vaguely have an image of my Dad watching Queen at Live Aid on the TV (a repeat of course, I’m not that old) and that always stuck with me, maybe that’s the reason? Who knows

Introduce us to you and your musical history?

Sam: I played guitar in a previous project with Dan, called The Wools. I’ve cut off all my hair since then, and now I can see more than just hair in front of me. I’m definitely hitting less bum notes than I used to. 

Sean: I’ve Known Dan since we were 4. We went to the same primary school and he introduced me and Sam.

What’s one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?

“Where are you from?”. We literally have to ‘go around the world’ to tell you.

We set up RGM USA and many other countries in the world to share music with America and the UK, good idea?

Most certainly a good one, if you manage to get us a gig or two in California, that is.

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?

Sam: No, I’m a big sceptic.

Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?

Sam: No because it had already been taken off the shelves by the panic buyers!

Sean: Yeah I was pretty bad for this. I just kept buying retro stuff, Ive now got every FIFA game ever made on PS2. Do I use them? No. I’m hoping one day they are worth a fortune.

What useless party trick do you have?

Sam: I can crack my nose on a flat surface, such as a table, without using my hands. 

Sean: I mean, I can touch my nose with my tongue but Sams is better.

What was the most fun you have had on stage?

Sam: We played a EBGBS hometown headliner back in February and the place was full. We were a five-piece at the time on a tiny stage, so it felt like we were playing a gig in someone’s living room… or basement… if you were to take the low ceilings and gloomy lighting into account. 

Sean: Totally agree with Sam but we did an acoustic gig in Southampton which was brilliant. I enjoyed the vanity.

What was the worst experience on stage?

Sam: My guitar strap disconnected from my guitar whilst on stage last year in London, which I had to catch in mid air whilst playing. I only had two chords left to play in the song, but a hundred laughing faces to look up to in the aftermath. 

Sean: I started to explain what a song was about, but completely lost my way and couldn’t stop talking. I just went on and on and on, I could sense the crowd just wanted me to shut up.

Tell us something about each member that you think people would be surprised about?

Sam: Paolo is only 27

If you had to describe your band/music to an alien how would you describe it?

Sam: It’s out of this world, like you.

What makes you stand out as a band/artist?

Sam: Our almagamation of grunge guitar and soft analogue synth sounds.

Sean: I don’t really hear anyone that sounds like us, that must be a good thing right?

Right now, what’s pissing you off the most?

Sam: Undoubtedly, the price of petrol.

Sean: I work in a school so I’m currently off for 6 weeks and I’m going out of my mind with nothing to do.

Whats your favourite song to play live and why?

Sam: I’d say Amplified because of the sheer energy it boasts. The live setup really brings that song to life. 

Sean: Original, it’s my baby, I love it.

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it?

Sean: It’s a synth-heavy track with a cool vocal counter-melody at the end, that intersects the lead vocal line.

Talk me through the thought process of the new music?

Sam: I think Sean wanted the song to be about telling someone that you care about them, and the ways in which you can go about doing that. I thought that was a nice touch for a song like this. 

Sean: Yeah it’s sort of about trying to find someone to tell them how much you care and want to help them through their struggles. Dan was fantastic and bringing this to life lyrically. I had lyrics which I was fond of before dan came in with an extra set of eyes and helped me let go of a few things to improve it.

What was the recording process like?

Sam: Much less stressful than the first batch of recordings. It was the second time we’d recorded with Kurran (producer) and he didn’t have to reamp Paolos bassline because luckily he was in the country this time.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the music?

Sam: Not to have 3 solos coming from 3 different instruments, it sounded a little bit like a free-for-all. 

Would you change anything now its finished?

Sam: We kind of already did, after we were sent the master mix of the original version. We removed a load of synth parts to whittle the song down to 3 minutes

Sean: It’s perfect, in every way.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Sam: We’re looking to play gigs in a few more northern territories other than Liverpool before the new year approaches. Every time we’ve played outside of Liverpool, we’ve always had a positive response, and I think we want to increase the number of recipients giving us that particular response. 

Sean: So hit us up!
