Quickfire Questions #74: Daniel Pearson

 
By on Wednesday, 9th April 2014 at 1:00 pm
 

Indie English singer/songwriter Daniel Pearson is busy preparing for the upcoming release of his EP ‘Escape Acts’ on the 14th of April and a scheduled performance at Live at Leeds on the 3rd of May. He took the time to answer our Quickfire Questions as part of an e-mail interview, which you can read here.

What song is your earliest musical memory?
Oh man, Phil Collins, I think. My parents liked him and I remember that. My first record was actually ‘TURTLE POWER’ from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. I must’ve been 8 or something. I’ve still got it on vinyl somewhere, and yep, I’m proud of it!

What song makes you laugh?
A lot of Eminem’s stuff makes me laugh out loud. He gets away with some crazy things about celebrities.

What song makes you cry?
‘God Only Knows’ by The Beach Boys. It’s perfect.

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
When I had my very first girlfriend, she used to love Blur and I used to love Oasis so we’d listen to their albums and argue over who was better. And then make out. So anything from ‘Parklife’ or ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)’ reminds me of that.

Which song (any song written in the last century / 100 years or so) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Bruce Springsteen – ‘Born To Run’. It’s brilliant, and distills everything that’s great about rock n’ roll into 4 minutes. You hear that at a show, and you realize what being alive is all about. [I think I could only love this answer more if he'd chosen 'Thunder Road'. -C.C.]

YouTube Preview Image

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
I couldn’t choose just one! Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain and Ryan Adams would be high on the list. So would a lot of writers, screenwriters and poets. I think we should celebrate creativity and imagination more, ‘cos it’s dying out in the mainstream.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I’d be an English teacher. I was one. I love books and performing and doing good things for people, so it’s a good fit. The idealist in me loved it, but the reality is very different and very misunderstood. Aside from that, playing for my beloved Everton FC would be a dream occupation!

Special thanks to Daniel for taking the time to answer our questions and also thank you to Jamie for helping sort this out for us.

 

(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Quickfire Questions #73: Owen Lloyd of Longfellow

 
By on Monday, 10th March 2014 at 11:00 am
 

TGTF are now in Austin! The music portion of SXSW 2014 goes into full swing tomorrow. We’ve been running a special version of the TGTF Quickfire Questions, served up SXSW style with an extra couple of questions to get inside bands’ heads so they would tell us what they really think of the event. Here we are, in the tenth of these, and I’m really pleased to be bringing you the Quickfire answers from singer and frontman Owen Lloyd of up and coming band Longfellow.

The Londoners will be releasing their second single ‘Kiss-Hug-Makeup’ with one of our favourite indie labels, Fierce Panda, on the 19th of May. This are exciting times for the group, who will be appearing at a very special BBC Introducing night compered by who else by the legend that is Steve Lamacq on Thursday evening (the 13th of March) here in Austin. Catch the broadcast live on 6music; more details will be here. But until then, whet your appetite with words from the ‘Siamese Lover’ singer…

SXSW-related questions:
What are you most looking forward to doing while you’re in Austin?
I just can’t wait to play the BBC Introducing show at Latitude 30 on the 13th; we’ve had an unbelievable show of support from the BBC the last few months and it feels like the perfect opportunity to do them proud. Also, it’s a terrible cliché but I’ve promised my sister some cowboy boots… I think Texan shopping is going to be one hell of an adventure. [Head south of the river to Allen Boots on South Congress - Ed.]

Are there any bands that you have as must-sees on your schedule? If yes, who are they and why?
The Crookes, I’m yet to have seen them but I’ve fallen in love with their new album after being introduced to it by our manager Simon (label boss at Fierce Panda Records). I think we’re lucky enough to be playing with Katie Herzig at some point too; she’s a songwriter who I’ve been dying to see for a while now.

Name something you’re packing in your suitcase that we might find unusual. (You are welcome to elaborate.)
I’m trying to to finish off a degree at the University of Westminster whilst all this SXSW madness is going on so I’ll be taking a hoard of books on Autism and Music Therapy. There’s a real disparity between the thoroughly studious Owen and the one who’s fronting the band at the moment, I’m kind of enjoying it.

If we happen to run into you in a bar, we’d like to buy you a drink. What is your tipple of choice?
Now that depends on whether it’s before or after we’ve played a show… Before I’d probably be unenticingly boring and go for a lime and soda. Afterwards, the sky’s the limit, you choose…

(For bands who are SXSW newbies) What have you heard about the festival? Are you excited / anxious / scared / etc. and why?
I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet. It’s our first proper festival, so we’re a bit oblivious and as a result quite levelheaded, but we’ve heard so many fabulous and exciting things about it it’s hard not to feel a little anxious. Plus, the BBC lineup is insane, so we’ve got to really pull our socks up to feel at home with the impressive company we’re keeping.

Let’s move on to the usual TGTF Quickfire Questions:

What song is your earliest musical memory?
My dad was a keen musician, and he immersed me in music from quite an early age. He used to sit in our living room and cover classics on his acoustic guitar like Toto – ‘Africa’, The Beatles – ‘You’ve Got to Hide Your love Away’ and Todd Rundgren – ‘I Saw the :ight’.

What was your favourite song as a child?
The Pointer Sisters – ‘Slow Hand’. Whenever we were going on a family holiday this always found its way into the travel playlist, I know it’s shamelessly ’80s, but I have so much nostalgia for it.

What song makes you laugh?
One Direction – ‘The Story of my Life’. I heard the shred version on YouTube and I can’t get it out of my head each time I hear the original.

YouTube Preview Image

What song makes you cry?
Nick Drake – ‘Northern Sky’. Nick had such an incredible talent and to die so tragically young was a terrible waste. This song is beautiful.

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – ‘Rich’ My first love was a bit of vixen and she drove me to the point of insanity with this song as the soundtrack to it.

YouTube Preview Image

What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
Patrick Watson – ‘Man Like You’. This song was the outro to a fairly destructive friendship I had a few years ago now, I can still listen to it but with an air of negative reminiscence and reflection.

Which song (any song written in the last century / 100 years or so) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Joni Mitchell – ‘A Case of You’. Joni’s lyrics are a huge inspiration.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
Sylvia Plath. [I think we might have been separated at birth... - Ed.]

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I trained to be a dietician for two years before throwing myself into music so I’d probably still be deluding myself with something scientific and sensible. [Yup, definitely separated at birth. - Ed.]

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
This is a tricky one and changes day to day but currently, Manchester Orchestra – ‘Mean Everything to Nothing’.

We wish Owen and the whole Longfellow crew best wishes as they make their maiden voyage to SXSW and we are prepared they will knock everyone’s socks off on Thursday night! Thank you Owen for answering our questions.

(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Quickfire Questions #71: Dale Norton of Broken Hands

 
By on Monday, 3rd March 2014 at 11:00 am
 

In the time leading up to SXSW 2014, we’ll be running a special version of the TGTF Quickfire Questions, served up SXSW style with an extra couple of questions to get inside bands’ heads so they’ll tell us what they really think of the event. In the eight installment of this series ahead of the activities in Austin next month, frontman and vocalist of Kent’s Broken Hands fills us in on the Nick Drake song that makes him laugh, why he wouldn’t be a good DJ in heaven and much more…

Read my Bands to Watch feature on Broken Hands here.

SXSW-related questions:

What are you most looking forward to doing while you’re in Austin?
We are very excited to be in Austin, it’s the first time we’ve been to USA, so just to do everyday stuff in Austin is an exciting prospect. Also, on our day off, we are going to drive to Houston and check out the Space Centre. We want to see as much of the whole of Texas as we can and driving will mean highway dinner, which we like the idea of.

Are there any bands that you have as must-sees on your schedule? If yes, who are they and why?
Band of Skulls and Syd Arthur ‘cos we have hung/toured with them in the past. But new acts probably Royal Blood and Action Bronson because we want to see their live shows again.

Name something you’re packing in your suitcase that we might find unusual. (You are welcome to elaborate.)
24 silver rescue blankets and a 10-inch glass orb. [Intriguing... - Ed.]

If we happen to run into you in a bar, we’d like to buy you a drink. What is your tipple of choice?

Whisky and ginger beer.

(For bands who are SXSW newbies) What have you heard about the festival? Are you excited / anxious / scared / etc. and why?
I heard there is a mini effects pedal convention and a free bar in some places. Hope that’s true, if not I would be cool to stumble into a pop-up gig. Friends of ours are always on about how they saw “The Beatles in a bowling alley” last year or whatever. [Free bars are indeed to be had in many locations. For starters, check out the afternoon shows at the British Music Embassy at Latitude 30, they often have open bars earlier in the day. Worth a look. - Ed.]

Now on to the usual Quickfire Questions:

What song is your earliest musical memory?
My Dad took me and Callum to loads of festivals when we where tiny, so they blur into one big first memory. I’ll never forget how big the PA stacks used to seem, they were like Everest or something.

What was your favourite song as a child?
I don’t actually know mine, but our guitarist Jamie was brought up on two records ‘Tubular Bells’ and ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ so they had to be his favourite as that was all he knew.

What song makes you laugh?
Nick Drake, ‘Hazy Jane II’. (Lyrics are mental.)

YouTube Preview Image

What song makes you cry?
Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac ‘Closing My Eyes’. (Sad, man.)

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
‘Led Zeppelin IV’. [You had me at 'Led Zeppelin IV'... - Ed.]

What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
Beck, ‘Soul Suckin’ Jerk’.

YouTube Preview Image

Which song (any song written in the last century / 100 years or so) do you wish you’d written yourself?
‘Fly Me To The Moon’.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
I can’t answer this, sorry, too hard. :)

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I always wanted to be a pilot, I’d like to think that can still happen as a musician still…….fingers crossed.

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
It really depends which god?? I believe in all of them so I don’t want to be a kill joy for the dance floor in the sky! I’m a bad DJ, if you know what I mean.

Cheers, Dale, for answering our questions. Have a fab time in Austin!

 

(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Quickfire Questions #70: Huw Williams of The Melodic

 
By on Friday, 28th February 2014 at 11:00 am
 

For the next couple of weeks leading up to SXSW 2014, we’ll be running a special version of the TGTF Quickfire Questions, served up SXSW style with an extra couple of questions to get inside bands’ heads so they’ll tell us what they really think of the event. In numero seven of this series ahead of the activities in Austin next month, frontman and guitarist Huw Williams of The Melodic tells how he and his band plan to introduce Americans to “the beautiful game”, among other things that are musical in nature, we can assure you!

Read Carrie’s Bands to Watch feature on the Melodic here.

SXSW-related questions:

What are you most looking forward to doing while you’re in Austin?
We’re getting put up for the week by a band from Austin called Mother Falcon, who we met on tour last year in LA, they have nearly 20 members so it should be a bit of a party and hoping they will be able to show us a good time in Austin, Southern hospitality and all that. We came through last year as a freak ice storm hit and our outdoor gig had to be moved inside so we had a pretty cold and wet stay, looking forward to seeing it in the warmer times.

Are there any bands that you have as must-sees on your schedule? If yes, who are they and why?
Guess we’re most excited about seeing Malian band Tinariwen who we will be playing a showcase with: we’ll be touring with them for the rest of March and April, so I’m excited to see them live as have been a big fan of their music for ages and have heard great things about their live show. I’m also looking forward to seeing some of the British acts that have made it over for the festival will be great to see some friendly faces so far from home, Nick Mulvey and Cocos Lovers especially.

Name something you’re packing in your suitcase that we might find unusual. (You are welcome to elaborate.)
John (our bass player) always likes to bring a football (soccer ball) on tour with us to kick around at the petrol (gas) stations when filling up to the annoyance of everybody else using the pumps- we’ll be hoping to introduce some American bands to the joys of England’s “beautiful game” at SXSW.

If we happen to run into you in a bar, we’d like to buy you a drink. What is your tipple of choice?
I’ll have a cider please, John and Lydia on the red wine, James strictly tequila and Rudi a herbal tea. [I'm with you, Huw. If you find a decent place that serves cider, give me a shout! - Ed.]

(For bands who are SXSW newbies) What have you heard about the festival? Are you excited / anxious / scared / etc. and why?
I’ve heard great things, sounds like an extremely hectic week where people play a crazy amount of shows and run themselves into the ground, so just hoping to enjoy as much music as possible and survive and be in fit shape to complete the rest of our tour afterwards, we’ll be touring solidly ’til May so gonna be hardcore but excited to see so many places in the US we haven’t been before.

And now, on to our usual TGTF Quickfire Questions:

What song is your earliest musical memory?
My Dad used to sing folk songs at bedtime to me and my brothers when I was a little scamp and I would always get him to sing ‘Dirty Old Town’, so I guess that has to be the earliest song I can remember liking.

What was your favourite song as a child?

I just told you, man!

What song makes you laugh?
Anything by Canadian pop plonker Sean Nicholas Savage always gets me smiling, ‘Chin Chin’ my favourite, silly lyrics a plenty “kiss tiny chin chin in the morning….”.

YouTube Preview Image

What song makes you cry?
I’m far too emotionally repressed to cry to music, but the songs of Chilean activist-folk singer Victor Jara who was brutally murdered for his music are particularly moving even when you can’t understand the Spanish lyrics.

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love?
‘Darlin Companion’ – Johnny Cash and June Carter.

What song makes you think of being upset / angry?
I get angry whenever i hear a song too much on radio; last summer whilst touring the States you couldn’t move for hearing Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ and it all got a bit much, i initially thought it was a decent song but i just can’t deal with it anymore.

Which song (any song written in the last century / 100 years or so) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Two folk songs by Dave Goulder impress me a lot, ‘January Man’ and ‘The Easter’ Tree have incredible lyrics and melodies that i doubt i will ever get close to. So much music from the ’60s I wish I could have written or been part of, love so much stuff written by Dylan, Ray Davies, Brian Wilson and Lennon especially.

Who is your favourite writer?
Bert Jansch, a Scottish folk/blues guitarist influential in the ’60s is my favourite musician, although I think he was great at making new arrangements of traditional folk songs and not necessarily writing them, although he wrote plenty of fantastic songs too, so he’s got to be up there.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I’ve always liked the idea of being able to craft things with my hands, working with wood especially, so a carpenter of some sorts or instrument maker would be something I think I’d find great pleasure in.

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
Well it would have to be ‘Effra Parade’ by The Melodic, what a great debut album from London’s finest folk steppers :)

Many thanks, Huw, for answering our questions!

 

(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Quickfire Questions #69: Sivu

 
By on Thursday, 27th February 2014 at 3:00 pm
 

For the next couple of weeks leading up to SXSW 2014, we’ll be running a special version of the TGTF Quickfire Questions, served up SXSW style with an extra couple of questions to get inside bands’ heads so they’ll tell us what they really think of the event. In the sixth installment in this feature ahead of the Austin shenanigans, James Page, aka the brilliant Sivu, tells us he’s going to be ready if he gets into a mess and the importance of Elton John and Glasvegas in his musical history. Read on…

Catch the Bands to Watch feature I wrote on Sivu here; go here to watch our posting of the brand new Sivu video for ‘Can’t Stop Now’ from yesterday.

SXSW-related questions:

What are you most looking forward to doing while you’re in Austin?
I’m really just looking forward to throwing myself into the whole thing and to just experience Texas. I have never been before, so very excited to experience it. Sun, booze and music: it’s the dream combination.

Are there any bands that you have as must-sees on your schedule? If yes, who are they and why?
I haven’t had the chance to see much of the schedule yet but very excited to see Warpaint; also praying the Kills play, I am obsessed with them right now.

Name something you’re packing in your suitcase that we might find unusual. (You are welcome to elaborate.)
Ok, something unusual, I’m a a little OCD, so will have all my cleaning products with me just in case I get into a mess.

If we happen to run into you in a bar, we’d like to buy you a drink. What is your tipple of choice?
Currently drinking a lot of dark rum and ginger beer and a squeeze of lime! I would very much love to join you for a drink though. [You're on! - Ed.]

(For bands who are SXSW newbies) What have you heard about the festival? Are you excited /anxious / scared / etc. and why?
I have heard the festival is glorious chaos, which sounds like a dream, I’m worried if people come to my shows, but at the same time I’m just going to go with it, and just try and embrace the madness.

Let’s go on to our usual TGTF Quickfire Questions:

What song is your earliest musical memory?
Earliest song memory I think was Elton John ‘Your Song’. My dad used to play Elton John for all car journeys.

What was your favourite song as a child?
My favourite song as a child was, I’m embarrassed to say, ‘Red Red Wine’ by UB40 (great tune). [I dunno, I don't find this embarrassing; I have this on cassette! - Ed.]

YouTube Preview Image

What song makes you laugh?
Really fast, really heavy metal!

What song makes you cry?
‘Samson’ by Regina Spektor always gets me.

What song reminds you of the first time you fell in love? (It’s up to you if you want this to be sweet, naughty, etc.)
Wow, that’s a hard one. On the first Glasvegas album, the opening track is called ‘Flowers & Football Tops’. My girlfriend bought me that album for Christmas as my first Christmas present; that song always reminds me of that time.

What song makes you think of being upset / angry? (Example: maybe you heard it when you were angry with someone and it’s still with you, and/or something that calms you down when you’re upset, etc.)
‘Arcarsenal’ by At the Drive In always gets me pumped!

YouTube Preview Image

Which song (any song written in the last century / 100 years or so) do you wish you’d written yourself?
Oh man, so many. Definitely ‘Moon River’, ‘Strangers in the Night’, or ‘The Universal’ by Blur. Perfect.

Who is your favourite writer? (This can be a songwriter or ANY kind of writer.)
Oh man, too many to choose from. Kate Bush.

If you hadn’t become a singer/musician/songwriter/etc., what job do you think you’d be doing right now?
I think I’d still be working in an office probably or worked in health and safety, seeing how clean restaurants were, don’t think I’d be bad at that.

If God said you were allowed to bring only one album with you to Heaven, which would it be and why? (Sorry, but double albums do not count.)
Just one! That’s hard, wow. Do greatest hits count? If so, Frank Sinatra’s ‘Greatest Hits’. If not, ‘Hounds of Love’ by Kate Bush.

Cheers James for answering our questions. We’ll definitely have a drink in Austin!
