Minuit - Minuit Newsletter Interview

01 Aug 2009 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Paul for answering these questions:

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Best gig??? Stop it.
Anything where the whole room is singing verse and chorus start to end. Those suckas up the front got some big voices.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Club PAs always kick the ass outta live venues, tho clubs have crap staging...hmmm..
We play a lot in Sandwiches and SFBH in Wgtn and Double Happy in Chch, and if I wanted to see a new band I'd get up close at Mighty Mighty!

What NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Bionic Pixie and The Naked and Famous are pretty slick. I like the cover versions Little Pictures have recorded too. Fun. Any band where, when you see them you turn to a random person next to you and share a mutual glance of 'yeah, thats pretty cool...' heh

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

What happens in the Coromandel stays in the Coromandel! Stop it.

How did you come up with the name Minuit?

Minuit (minwee) is French for midnight... don't the strangest things happen after that time of night?

How do you describe your music?

Weaving your way into the underbelly of places you'd usually need a visa to get to.

What can we expect to see from Minuit over the next year?

New album 'Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death Dot Com' is out from 20 July in NZ - That'll keep us busy. Plus we're working on a remix album called 'Find Me.. In The Club' which'll be the floor versions of the album by FunkSloCuts and Gimme A C! - the alter ego's of the Minuit production dudes. Play heaps more. Travel heaps more.

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

Do it Do it DO it!
 

About Minuit

Minuit has a heart. And it beats loud. Real loud.

Having toured their synths and samplers from Hanoi to Helsinki on the live circuit for over a decade, this trio have crafted their own energetic sound – and it's refreshingly different.

Out front, the enigmatic Ruth Carr mixes sinister with salvation in a jubilant cascade of lyrics, while bandmates Ryan Beehre and Paul Dodge forge their rib-rattling, hip-shaking beats around her.
