Would you care to introduce yourself?

4 skinny Glaswegian’s who should no better, or Tam (guitar & vocals) Andy (bass & vocals) Scott (synth & trumpet) and Calum (drums & percussion) to our mums

How would you describe the music you make?

I suppose it’s kind of unadulterated indiepop, but then that sounds wanky, but I suppose it’s hard to describe music without coming across as a wank. So there you have it, describing music makes you a wank, no offence Lloyd! ;)

How did you start out making music?

Andy, Calum and I met in the usual boring way through mutual friends and by mistake in 2004 then Scott joined in 2007. we started out in much the same way we are today – playing gigs with bands we genuinely like, recording and releasing records through and with people we like and trying to make sure we have as much fun with it as possible.

What process goes into the way you write songs?

Two Oxo cubes lightly basted with melody

What can people expect from your live shows?

We normally play things around 103% faster live, throw ourselves about a bit and crack rubbish cock jokes inbetween songs. Ultimately we try and make it entertaining without coming across as trying too hard. I’ve seen far too many bands playing gigs whilst looking like they’d rather be *anywhere* other than on stage

What are you all listening to at the moment?

Personally I’ve been listening to the Beach Fossils and Wild Nothing albums and I also absolutely love the new Meursault album.

What can we expect to see/hear from you in 2010?

We’ve just released a new single “paper cuts” which you can download from our Bandcamp page and we’ll be releasing our second album “do no harm” around September time, there’ll be various gigs to support both releases hopefully across the UK
