Introduce yourselves- where are you from and who plays what
Together we’re known as Muddy Miles, we’re based in the cold and greys of London. Andy is on drums, Tariq plays bass and Muhebur is on vocals and guitar.
Describe your sound/lyric style
Like to think it’s heavy but trippy, it’s really up to you what we sound like. As for lyrics, it’s intelligent, thought making and hopefully inspiring. Inspiration is why we do this. We talk about the universe, the self, the mind and its expansion a lot.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
There are plenty of influences out there. We have a framed picture of Bill Hicks in our rehearsal studio. He spoke the truth. He’s really at the top of the list as our inspiration. We could list bands all day but there is so much good music from every corner.
We see bankers going to work every day. The look in their eyes is enough for you to be inspired to follow your heroes and not ever bother to put on a tie and suit. A lot of people give up so we made a choice not to.
Pink Floyd and Tool albums are constantly spinning on our record player.
What are you working on now?
We are working on the Vinyl release of Another Headache. We’re putting together more artwork to really complete this album. We feel it needs it.
Also a European and possible New York tour is in the talks for the summer. We never stop working on new songs and hoping to get another LP out in the autumn hopefully.
Are you touring now? When/where?
We’ve just come off tour from the UK. 2013 is set for more dates. However we will be playing at the Boston Arms in Camden with our friends Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster on the 6th December.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
We try to be humble as we can. Play the songs. One second it’s massively heavy, a wall of sound then suddenly it’s dropped in volume and becomes a huge trippy psychedelic journey. It’s up to you really; you can take whatever journey you want with our music we’ll provide you with the soundtrack.
We have a trippy lighting rig to help you escape your mind, try it its quite fun. It won’t hurt. One a guy said he was going to take out all the pins in his face after one of our shows then go home and play guitar again, guess we inspired him…
Where can people check out your music?
And of course the record shop, our personal favourite and it should be yours too.
