HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
We are from a small Derbyshire town called Ashbourne, there are 5 Hills Out of the town so that was it, we are a 5 piece band as well but we started out with 3 of us, we had to be patient to complete the line up!
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
Our 1st gig was upstairs at Ye Olde Talbot in Uttoxeter. There was about 20 people there.
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
Last weekend, I finally managed to stay at home and sort out my house, I also did a water change for my tropical fish.
WHAT IS SOMETHING APART FROM YOUR WALLET OR PHONE THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
A plectrum, you always need one handy. I convinced a guy in Dublin who was playing at a bar to let me play a song, pulled out the plectrum as proof of being a musician :)
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN?
Liberty by The Levellers, it’s such a great uplifting song and written at such a terrible time under Thatchers awful government.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
Probably playing at my Son and Daughters school, and watching her sing along word for word of our new single Cogs.
