HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
The answer you seek is behind the Door of Kukundu, or perhaps it is inside yourself?
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
The reason we started a band in the first place was because a boy in our school called Adam Peters somehow got himself a slot at a Battle of the Bands at the ABC2 in Glasgow. We told Adam we had a band called The Silver Cats and that he could join it if we played the gig together. So, through sheer luck and a bit of light manipulation, we ended up playing to 100-or-so people for our first gig. We were sh****g ourselves, to say the least.
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
A day off for us is the free time to write, record or mix our next tune. That’s what we did on Sunday.
WHAT IS SOMETHING APART FROM YOUR WALLET OR PHONE THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
The Book of Bass. We keep it with us always.
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN?
Equinox by The Girobabies.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
We re-live it at most gigs. There’s a chap known as Gasmask Guy who comes to Mickey 9s gigs wearing a gas mask and army jacket (like in the video for our song ‘Ammunition’). He comes onstage to dance during that song, and he’s done it so many times now that now it feels weird if he’s not there.
