Twinset - Twinset Newsletter Interview

17 Jul 2006 // An interview by Shade
Who are your favourite NZ bands and artists?

Tape Man, Ladi 6, House of Shem, Age Pryor, Ryan Prebble & Recloose.

The best live gig you have ever been to?

Ronny Jordan Wellington. Not cause of Ronny, but he had a mean rhythm section.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Never turn down a gig. Always listen to what the other guys in the band are doing. Live music is teamwork. Practice.

What rumour would you like to start about yourselves?

We never start playing until we've each had half a bottle of scotch!
 

About Twinset

With Christopher Yeabsley on Hammond organ, twin brother Daniel weaving lyrical lines on flute, clarinet and all manner of saxes and Paul Hoskin steering the groove from his drum seat, Twinset have created their unique variation on the organ combo.

Funnily, the Yeabsley twins never intended to become Jazz musicians. Sons of a prominent economist, Daniel was going to be a mathematician, Christopher a lawyer. It was their teenage discovery of the music of Dave Brubeck that diverted them into a musical education. At eighteen, Daniel took up the sax and Christopher the piano. In spite of their relatively late start, they applied themselves to mastering their instruments with the same passion and obsessiveness with which they had previously collected vintage suits and restored old Holdens.

Among their fellow students at the Massey Jazz School was drummer Paul Hoskin. They jammed, hit it off, and began gigging together around the Capital.
