INTERVIEW: Alexander Price

RHV: Tell us who you are and where you're from?.
My name is Alexander Price. I originate from South Yorkshire but now live in Dalston London

RHV: Describe your music.
My music is inspired by Disco, Punk and Glam Rock. It's Electro Pop essentially. I am influenced by Daft Punk, Pet Shop Boys, Giorgio Moroder and Lifelike.

RHV: Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.
I am a male solo act so I started making music when I came to London. I initially intended to pursue a career in dance but fell into music after frequenting many clubs where I met my producer, dancers and some of the best new fashion talent. I was inspired by the sounds and styles of what I was hearing and seeing and fused with my dance theatre background just started putting everything together.

RHV: What did you do before you were in a band?
I was a student of contemporary dance, performance art and theatre.


RHV: List the first CDs/records each of you bought.
Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters

RHV: What's the band up to over the next few months?
Constant live work - I will be touring. Also I am designing the clothes for the stage shows and I have my next video to make for the song In The City.

RHV: Best item of fan mail you've ever received?
I receive messages from people all over the world telling me they love my music which is fantastic. I can’t think of one that sticks out as the best though I have received some quite explicit ones, especially in relation to my song ‘Toyboy‘.

RHV: What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus?
'I Miss You' by Bjork. We warm up to that!

RHV: What gear do you use?
I make my music with a friend who uses pro tools and a couple of old analogue synths!

RHV: What's your best on tour story?

RHV: What do you demand on your rider?
I once did a gig with a band who I will not name who basically got pissed before their gig and fucked their show up. They came barging into the shared dressing room and started screaming at each other. I had to get in the middle of these two guys who I thought were going to start brawling.
