Flogging a Dead One Horse Town - Interview: Flogging a Dead One Horse Town Celebrate their 10 Year Anniversary

27 Nov 2020 // An interview by Chris Chick

Flogging A Dead One Horse Town are celebrating 10 years together, Chris Chick from Muzic.net.nz had the privilege to grab a few words from them regarding this wonderful milestone.

10 years of making music is quite the feat, thinking back to when you first started out, did you think you would ever be here 10 years later?

FADOHT is 10 years old but we’ve been jamming together for over 25 years now. We always knew we were in for the long haul.

In those 10 years, what has been the most exciting memory?

We got our first real six string, bought it at the five and dime, played it till our fingers bled. Was the summer of 2009.

What would you say to yourself 10 years ago if you had the chance?

Put your life savings on Leicester City to win the 2015-16 Premier League.

What made you want to be a punk band? and who were your main influences?

We already had the girls the money and the fame so our therapist told us we needed a hobby. We grew up idolising Kiwi bands like Bailterspace and The 3Ds, and US bands like Fugazi and Shellac.

What are your 3 favourite songs that you have produced?

Man Wearing Cape from EP2 – No haha, We’ll Decide If It’s Funny from EP4 – For Relief I Turn Back to The Folds of My Trousers from EP9 and a self-titled release through Muzai Records.

If there was one song you could have written, what would it have been?

Wind of Change by Scorpions – We are generally dead inside when it comes to emotions but the whistling intro gets us going every time.

What does the future look like for the band? are there any milestones you want to reach?

Fatter and greyer. 100 EP’s

What advice would you give any aspiring musicians wanting to get into the music scene here in NZ?

Make the music you want to make (not what you think other people want to hear), have fun, do it with friends and if you want to make a track with a 25-minute whistling intro, do it and then send us a copy.

What is the best way for people to checkout your music and are there any gigs coming up for us mere mortals to come and see you?

Search for FADOHT or Muzai Records on Bandcamp. We are hoping to have a few gigs lined up early next year. Best place to see what’s going on is through Muzai Records.

Bonus fun question, you have 3 other bands you can choose to be in a mini festival with, who would they be?

Repairs – First Move – Sweep The Leg Johnny
