BLACK TREE VULTURES - Ask 6


HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?

I remember it well... It was a dark and stormy night and we were just shouting random words at each other until Jonno came out with that.

-

WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?

A mates house party in Bournemouth. There were six people (including us) more of a gathering really.

-

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?

When we’re not gigging we slave away for the man, but one day... the shackles will be broken.

-

WHAT IS SOMETHING - APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET - THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES AND WHY?

For Celyn it’s currently his leg brace after detaching his knee from a “sick jump” onstage.

Aaron has polish for cleaning his guitar in any downtime we get. It’s a hobby in its own right.

Jonno has a backup snare in his presence at all times “just in case” but I’ve never seen it used. Ever.

For me it’s my ear plugs. Not just to protect from the high volume required by the genre but if I share a hotel room with Aaron, he talks in his sleep.

-

WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN?

There are a few to be honest, but if Comfortably Numb hadn’t been written until now I don’t think music would be better for it. So I’ll go with One Note Song by Tenacious D.

-

WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?

A Dutch fan gave each of us a hand written note which was really sweet. Someone putting that level of thought into something was surreal but it was very lovely and we’ve all kept them.
