Forty Bucks Till Tuesday - Forty Bucks Till Tuesday Newsletter Interview

28 Sep 2022 // An interview by Shade

Forty Bucks Till Tuesday is an openly trans-genre metal band from the distinguished suburbs of south and west Auckland. Currently on the hunt for a new vocalist to complement their existing sound, Muzic.net.nz recently spoke to Spoon, Dean and Hayley about their music, most memorable show and who they rank highly within NZ music. Have a read of what went down:

How did you become involved with music?

Dean: I grew up with my brother constantly playing rock/metal (rudely) loud enough for the whole house to hear, it eventually grew on me and made me want to pick up drumming.

Spoon: Music was always important in my house when I was a kid, we had tapes of our favourite bands that we dubbed off the TV and we would play them on repeat, eventually at the age of 14 I picked up a guitar.

Hayley: My parents are both musicians, so I would've been disowned if I didn't play some sort of instrument.

How would you describe your music to someone who hasn't heard it before?

Dean: Trans genre assassin clan metalish groove music. It's hard to explain. 

Spoon: A tasty even spread across different heavy metal genres. Our live shows are a party. 

Hayley: It's melodic and then AARRRRGH and then melodic again. 

Who are your favourite NZ bands and musicians?

Dean: At the moment, The Checks, HLAH, 8 Foot Sativa.

Spoon: A lot of them!! Ones that stand out the most are Supergroove, Push Push, Shihad, Villainy, Sommerset, Bleeders, Kora, 8 Foot Sativa, Darcy Clay.

Hayley: Man, I'm way more old school than everyone else. I like Split Enz and Th' Dudes. But I do also like Fat Freddy's Drop, The Black Seeds, Blindspott.

Have you got any tips for dealing with nerves before a gig?

Dean: Three beers and rocking out to the other bands.

Hayley: You're there to have a good time! Have a beer, chill, mosh, spin kick your best mate, and then enjoy yourself on stage. It gets easier the more you do it.

What NZ bands and musicians would you like to tour with?

Spoon: If I had the power, Shihad and Push Push, that would be a fun show.

Which one of your songs are you most proud of?

Spoon: Mother Mercy's Keeper. I love that song.

Hayley: Crownless. The build-up towards the end is so rad and everyone gets to have their own little solo bit, so it's a great song to introduce the band.

What local albums have you been listening to recently? 

Spoon: Lately Shapeshifter: Riddim Wise and Supergroove: Traction, both classic albums.

What is your Favourite NZ venue:

Spoon: It was the Kings Arms Tavern In Newton Auckland. Otherwise I like a good underground show at the Galotos in Auckland City.

What has been the most memorable show to date:

Spoon: Our EP release party at The Ding Dong Lounge. The venue was packed from front to back and they were all moshing. A friend of ours dislocated their knee on the last song Crownless -  it was insane! They said it was the best night of their lives hahaha.

Hayley: Definitely the EP release. A couple of my friends in the crowd were first responders so they were able to look after Knee Girl until the ambulance arrived haha. Wicked night.

What rumour would you like to start about Forty Bucks Till Tuesday?

Dean: Def not a rumour but we made people's eyes blow out of their socket once.

Spoon:  Sometimes they just make it up but no one notices. 

Hayley: They're actually The Wiggles undercover.
