Introducing: King’s Horses

YOUR NAME: Matt.
BAND NAME: King’s Horses.
WHAT DO YOU DO/PLAY? Guitar/Vox.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TOGETHER AS A BAND/PLAYING MUSIC? 4 years.
GIVE US 3 REASONS WHY WE SHOULD TRACK DOWN, LISTEN TO AND DISCOVER YOUR MUSIC?
Out of curiosity to work out who we’re trying to rip off (we really couldn’t compare ourselves to anyone, and not in a cocky way!).
We don’t write cliched songs with cliched lyrics, so that’s nice.
We don’t get many listeners, so you guys can be the first to say you discovered us
WHERE DO YOU SOUND BEST – FESTIVAL, CLUB, BEDROOM – OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?
In small spaces. Working out arrangements and then playing to people with friendly faces makes us happy.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST…
RECORD? Bobby Brown – ‘My Prerogative’ (7” single).
CD? Blur – Parklife.
DOWNLOAD? CSS – ‘Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death from Above’.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES RIGHT AND YOU’VE GOT A MANSION AND A SUPERMODEL GIRL/BOYFRIEND, WHAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST MUSICAL INDULGENCE?
Buy some Beatles sh*t and just touch it, knowing that one of the Beatles touched it before
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG AND YOU’VE ACRIMONIOUSLY BROKEN UP CITING HUGE MUSICAL DIFFERENCES, WHAT DO YOU FALL BACK ON?
Make music in my kitchen in the hope someone somewhere thinks it’s alright, then going back and forward for ages whether I think it’s ok to release or if it’s a steaming pile of chod.
