What made you decide to start the band?
Its what we have always done, not being in a band is to ghastly to comprehend

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
Pretty much all of them at some point although I’m pretty sure the millennium bug isn’t going to happen. But all in on the rest
Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?
No funds were an issue so kept it very basic
What useless party trick do you have?
Never invited to parties although if I was I would display my dancing skills…Have you heard of the lawnmower?
What was the most fun you have had on stage?
Sadly my memory is really bad but played a few arenas in my time and despite having a stage big enough to land an aeroplane Kill and I nearly collided head on… CJ jumped off a stage once to tell a man off…but then couldn’t get back on the stage…..And most recently Vix played the Cavern in Liverpool and we both smiled while we played an old song…That was nice…
What was the worst experience on stage?
Being to drunk to work out the guitar amp….
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about?
I once offered Chris Eubank out of retirement for slating my band on National television.
If you had to describe your band/music to an alien how would you describe it?
LOUD VERY LOUD….then show them earplugs….
What makes you stand out as a band?
We don’t really have a genre so our output is quite varied each release is slightly different, and we are very punctual.
Right now, what’s pissing you off the most?
Where the world is at right now, makes me extremely angry.
What’s your favourite song to play live and why?
I like playing the new single Invisible Girl, has a great groove.
I hear you have a new single, what can you tell us about it?
It’s a chronicle of Online dating with a great groove and a catchy chorus…I love it.
Talk me through the thought process of the single
We really just want to do something different and something your remember, but most important we write for us.
What was the recording process like?
This one started as a demo at my place then I sent over to CJ who finished the writing and produces the song. Generally, we work like this CJ is quality control.
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the single?
Listen to your Co-writers, work together and you achieve the best results.
Would you change anything now it’s finished?
Not a thing.
What are your plans for the year ahead?
More singles more gigs and my personal favourite radio sessions!
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
