Been around since?
Late 2006, I think we had our first practise in November of that year.

Current line up?
Matt Butcher - Guitar and vocals, Alex Anderson - Bass, Hayden Donnell - Keys and vocals, Olly Scott-Dye - Drums

Where are you based?
We're spread over Auckland

Musical history? What were you listening to back in high school?
Ummm this is just Alex answering but I'll try and answer from what I know of the other guys, Matt and Hayden used to listen to Smashing Pumpkins. I think we were all listening to Radiohead but I think the first time I really heard something that made me go wow was when I heard The Pixies. I think Olly has always listened to a lot of jazz music but in highschool I think he listened mainly to punk.

What are you currently listening to?
Matt listens to a lot of Battles, I'm (Alex) all about Animal Collective, Hayden listens to a lot of country but I think he's currently listening to Death Cab. Olly always listens to heaps of different things.

The state of music in NZ is..?
Good, a lot of good bands around, we need the next Blink to step up though and start helping all these bands grow their fan bases.

What's your favorite place to play?
Matt says the Kings Arms, I'm not really sure, I'd probably have to say Bodega in Wellington.

What was your favorite show?
My favorite show was one put on by our friend, it was called Barnstock, it was a casual festival sort of thing. We were all chilled out and it just seemed to be heaps of fun.

What is your recording process?
We've only done it once, we'd like to get some gear so we can just record ourselves.

What's been your best recording experience?
Pass

What's been your worst recording experience?
Pass

Favorite radio show/station?
I don't listen to the radio, but probably bFM for the rest of the guys. So yeah, say bFM.

The Future holds…?
I don't know, every potential action?
