MOUTHY ISSUE TWO
interview by Ian C Stewart
Who does what in the band?
Just me [Mike Morton]. With input from everyone.
Where did the name come from?
It's a term for how I feel making a change in my life. I was primarialy a visual artist before writing music, and can't seem to make my way back into it.
When did the band form?
How do your songs come to be?
I'm often inspired by my everyday events, feelings and sounds. When I sit down to write music it's a natural progression, that starts and ends differently every time.
Who are your five biggest musical influences and why?
1. gridlock: beautiful atmosphere, crunchy beat
2. haujobb: musical structure, original sounds
3. speedy j: changing style all the time while staying modern
4. vromb: emotional beats and experimentation
5. my friends bands: all original experimental and fun
What's the biggest show you've played so far?
I performed in Paris and Cannes with label-mate dither, implant, the legendary pink dots and haujobb. And it's the only show so far... :)
Any amusing band-related anecdotes you'd like to share with the world?
None yet... wait, something funny WILL happen to me. It always does.
What's next for the band?
Write a second CD, travel, revisit my illustration.
