Knives At Noon - Knives At Noon Newsletter Interview

08 Apr 2012 // An interview by Shade

Thanks to Paul for answering these questions:

What can we expect to see from Knives At Noon over the next year?

We have just released the Second Skin EP (available at http://www.knivesatnoon.com/). This is a 6-track EP compiling some of the music we made last year. After this you can expect a couple of new singles we've just recorded at York Street Studios and their accompanying videos. Should be pretty kick ass. Around that time keep an eye out 'cos Knives at Noon will be coming to a town near you. Beyond that, you'll have to wait and see. Big things are coming.

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

A. Get a day job. B. Don't be shit. C. Practice, Practice, Practice.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

The Mint Chicks, NZ's greatest art band. Crowded House & Split Enz, closest we've ever come to having a Beatles. The Phoenix Foundation, again great songwriting and a cool band. And uh, Shihad. My fave' kiwi rockers. That's just a few.

How do you believe Knives At Noon fits into the NZ music industry?

Demographically speaking, we encompass a wide audience somewhere from hipsters to the lowest common denominator. Tune in, you'll like it!

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Tough question, but I'd have to say maybe Bodega in wellington. We always have an awesome time, the people who work there are great and we always seem to have a really good turnout.

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

Another tough call. Big Day Out was definitely one of my highlights, it's a high school kids dream ya know? Opening for the Smashing Pumpkins was cool. Pint Night in Dunedin last year was pretty outrageous, about 900 people showed up to a 350 capacity venue, huge line outside and everything. Always a good feeling when it's your band they've come to see.

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Just the usual stuff; Facebook, email, MySpace, postcard, messenger pigeon.

What rumour would you like to start about Knives At Noon?

We are secretly training an army of messenger pigeons with USB sticks attached to their talons.

 

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.
