SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES RIGHT AND YOU’VE GOT A MANSION AND A SUPERMODEL GIRL/ BOYFRIEND, WHAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST MUSICAL INDULGENCE?
A room where all the walls have hundreds of guitars hung on them surrounded by a collection of amps and pedals.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG AND YOU’VE ACRIMONIOUSLY BROKEN UP CITING HUGE MUSICAL DIFFERENCES, WHAT DO YOU FALL BACK ON?
Hopefully, I’ll still have the mansion and the supermodel girlfriend, so I should be alright until things smooth over…
“Will is into some industrial rock”
PLEASE CITE SOME INTER-BAND MUSICAL DIFFERENCES…
I’m a big lover of hip-hop and rap music like Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean. I guess the other two don’t really listen to that kind of stuff regularly. It’s not like we have musical differences, we just have music that we all listen to and then other music that we only listen to individually. Will is into some industrial rock at the moment and Bex is delving into some jazz, I think.
WHO ARE YORKSHIRE’S FINEST IN CULTURE, SPORT AND MUSIC?
LIFE are a fantastic band and they’re doing brilliantly at the moment as well as Of Allies. The Black Delta Movement are releasing their debut record soon too which should be mega. We’re also all big lovers of Drenge, who are Sheffield lads. As for sports, we don’t really know what football is.
NAME YOUR SUPERGROUP – WHO’S PLAYING WHAT AND WHO’S ON VOCALS?
Thom Yorke (Radiohead/AFP) Keyboards, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters/Nirvana) Drums, Andrew Groves (Arcane Roots) Guitar, Jesse F. Keeler (DFA1979) Bass, Me on Vocals (obviously, but might get Mick Jagger to help me out a bit).
