Knives At Noon - Knives At Noon Newsletter Interview

06 Dec 2009 // An interview by Shade
Thanks to Tim for answering these questions:

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

This would have to be a few weeks back, we had the opportunity to play with The Veils and An Emerald City!

It was just a great night. Loads of people at Sammys in Dunedin which is a really beautiful building, The Veils were fantastic. An Emerald City were great too.

We went back to a mates place afterwards and partied with all the bands which was just fun to hang out with everyone.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Al's Bar in Christchurch. We are massive Al fans!

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

I would like to see Recloose again, I have not seen him in a while.
I saw Dudley Benson on his Churches tour, which was absolutely amazing. be nice to see him again. The whole Church setting really was quite extraoridinary. He had a 8 person chior and a string quartet. It was pretty mean seeing Head Like A Hole for the first time in a LONG time.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Not really embarrassing... more hilarious:

"I hate your sunglasses, you guys are all wankers"
Homeless guy, Auckland 3/10/09

"Can you hear the lovely young man on the banjo"
Elderly passenger, Interislander Ferry 27/10/2009

"These kids have been watching too much C4"
anonymous punter, HLAH gig, Dunedin 4/9/09

"I hate Knives At Noon"
Anonymous punter, The Tutts gig, Dunedin 07/08/2009

All of these are quite refreshing.

How did you come up with the name Knives At Noon?

I'm not too sure? It wasn't me, I like it though.
How do you describe your music?
Doom pop

What can we expect to see from Knives At Noon during 2010?

More music! We have just released the first track off our forthcoming CD 'Glitter Guts' It's called 'ThunderVeins' and you can download it from our Facebook page or on our profile at Muzic.net.nz. The CD will be ready for you to get as of March. We will be baking this up with a tour. I'm pretty stoked with this new CD and we have spoken to a few people about the opportunity of a video. So expect to see 1 or 2 in the next wee while. But for the latter part of the year, tunes tunes tunes.... It's what it's all about new music!

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

Don't take their rider..... check with bar owners to make sure your actions are not going to piss them off. Treat the sound man well.

About Knives At Noon

Knives at Noon started jamming in late 2007, but only really started doing things worth talking about in 2010, when they released the Glitter Guts EP (through Liberation), and the single and video for Violins and Violence.

The original songs of singer, pianist, producer and composer Lauren Nottingham have touched down on Earth under the moniker Frau Knotz.
