THEM VIBES INTERVIEW


Who are your musical and non-musical influences?


Let’s start musical. The feeling of pure truth through melody and rhythm is the secret knock to all our souls. That being said we listen to a lot, and we are always hunting for great music. Some days we’re getting down to the Kinks and others it could be Beethoven’s 7th- and all inbetween- just depends on the mood. The only thing we can’t stand is music without soul, and that tends to rear it’s vapid head quite often on the radio dial.



What inspires you to do what you do? 


It’s all expression, and when you get it right it’s honest expression, and there is no escaping the truth. Life itself is inspiration. You just have to pay attention.


How do you handle mistakes during a performance?


Mistakes in music can lead to genius. Sometimes the best moments in the studio are the unintended notes. Rock music is humanity in its most honest form- we are all bound to fuck up, so what truly matters is how quickly you recover. 


Is there a particular song or musical passage that never fails to move you emotionally?


The Beatles Abbey Road, side b. Every time. 


How would you describe your perfect day?


In the summer heat the skies begin to rain torrentially with money, never ceasing until every dollar is worthless. I smoke a cigarette and return to my orgy. 


Who were you, or would you be nervous to meet?


Besides a guy with a gun pointed at me aching for his next meth fix, probably Jerry Lee Lewis. The man paved the way for rock n’ roll, and they don’t call him the Killer for nothing.


What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?


The soundtrack to the Phantom Of The Opera. But, does it count if I’m not embarrassed? 


If you could blink your eyes and be in a favourite place right now, where would that be?


I blinked and it was too graphic to print. But blink again and I’m in New York city in autumn and having a beer. Blink again and she is having a drink with me. 


Is there something you would like to do more of in the future?


What we do now is nice. But multiply and amplify the now and therein lies the answer.


Where would you like to find yourself in ten years?


Alive and well but still hungry. Touring across the world and doing what we all truly love, playing music for all of you. 


What is the furthest show from your home that you have done?


Everyone in the band has played across the Atlantic sometime in their career, but as Them Vibes we have only touched the cities within the States. And so we can barely contain ourselves. We cannot wait to get over to Europe and rock out with every single one of you.
