INTERVIEW: Breton

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: Breton- From London

2. Describe your music.: We sound like a compilation CD on shuffle.
There’s a blog called theirbatedbreath that seem to understand our music better then we do.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: We started by doing sound design for films and produced hip hop and indie tracks for our friends… Then we argued about music for about a year. Then we stopped arguing and started listening to each other.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: Art college, factories, wasted lots of time

5. List the first CDs/records each of you bought.: Wu-Tang Clan – Enter the Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers)
Fugees – the Score
Nirvana – Nevermind
War of the Worlds – (1953 Motion Picture Soundtrack)

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: We are recording our album at our place, playing 1234 festival, shooting videos for the next singles and writing lots of tracks (and listening to lots of music) doing remixes and videos for bands we like and finishing a short film.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: Getting our track ‘The Well’ uploaded onto YouTube by a guy we had never met. He had somehow found the track, even though it was on a few underground blogs, and uploaded his own video for it. Its one of the greatest compliments we’ve ever had.

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Is Tropical, Wu Lyf, Babe Rainbow, Hook&theTwin, Crystal Castles, Maps&Atlases, Jehst, Moving Units, Portishead

9. What gear do you use?: Loop pedals, laptops, a bass and guitar that were bought for about £40… Our drummer uses a Roland SPDs to play electronic beats

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: We haven’t really toured that much, but when we were playing a show in Italy a little while ago our VJer was taken to this bar and offered a drink called Tomango they said “One Tomango and you will lose your mind”
It turns out that 1 Tomango makes you lose your mind, and 2 Tomangos meant you ended up lying in a pile of binbags trying to start a fight with yourself.

11. What do you demand on your rider?: We try not to demand too much.

12. What’s your website?: http://www.myspace.com/bretonbretonbreton
