Introduce yourselves- where are you from and who plays what?
We are a group of four socially awkward super villains. We prefer the collective name “The Blue Screen of Death”. It makes us feel wanted in a world we don’t really belong. After years of having our evil master plans thwarted, we grew disillusioned and decided to get into a far more fair and rewarding industry: the music business.
Steve George: Rhythm Guitar and Vocals
Paul Shott: Bass
Harry “Shogun” Gardner: Drums
Pete Davis: Lead Guitar
We all live in the Southern region of Hampton.
How would you describe your sound?
We play rock music. Our sound is a bit like what happens when you try to see how many jaffa cakes you can fit in your mouth at once. We keep getting described as a “British Queens of the Stone Age” and compared to the Foo Fighters. This is a good thing because they are both bands that make our special places tingle.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
Outside of music, we’re mainly influenced by Action movies and 90s’ computer games. Inside music it’s too loud to think.
What are you working on now?
We released an album in August, which, by the way, is MEGA-AWESOME, so at the moment we’re promoting/whoring that out. It’s soooo MEGA-AWESOME. We plan to shoot a video soon and organise a tour. We’ll do it as soon as this episode of “The Walking Dead” finishes. Promise. Did I mention that our album is MEGA-AWESOME?
Are you touring now?
We have a few dates lined up in the Southampton area. We plan to plan some more though. We may even venture out of our home town at some point. However, our bassist, Paul, is allergic to leaving Hampshire.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
Being at one of our live gigs feels a lot like punching Keith Chegwin in the face. Very satisfying indeed. Almost too satisfying. You might start to feel guilty that you are having this much fun, but other people (who aren’t at the gig) are missing out. You’ll get over it though. There’s a lot of energy and whooping. Lots of whooping. Man, I love whooping.
Oh, and sometimes we give out sweeties…
