At what age did you start playing? I believe it was fourteen when I started learning guitar. It was weird because at first, it already felt like it was too late to learn, too big a challenge but I started writing songs straight away, before I could even play, I was into punk so it really didn’t matter. The passion, honesty and emotion are still what I’m into with music. Now I am really into good melodies too.
If you could have dinner with any person alive or dead, who would it be? Whigfield!
How old were you guys when you first stood on stage? Sixteen, for the first Medusa gig. Saturday 24th June, in the year 2000.
What year was the band started? 1998, in the spring. It only had a full line up by 2000 though, when we played our first gig. During the next four or five years we had a lot of gigs, when we were more of a raw, punky band. It was only after a brief hiatus when the band re-emerged in 2006 with a new line up that we were ready with a new style, new songs, an album and a fully completed vision.
Can you tell us about your music videos that are available to watch on YouTube? We currently have three music videos, all from the last album Can’t Fucking Win. I actually directed the last two, which is something I will continue to do. It allows for it to be true to the vision of the band and I can include all my crazy ideas like midgets, cartoons and trashed hotel rooms!
What are the plans for the rest of the year?The studio is booked to record the third album, Headcase’s Handbook, in August. After which, we will release it and then start thinking about music videos and playing live to promote it. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to write the best possible songs for it so hopefully it should be something special. A lot of the songs are kind of different types of music and all offer different things, so it should be quite a deep and intense record. An album for anyone feeling lost or that feels as though they may be losing their mind!
