INTERVIEW: Mind Museum

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: We are a hard working, honest 3 piece rock band from Bristol, UK which consists of Justin E Percival singer/bass player, Guitarist Will Slater and Chas Bacon, Drums

2. Describe your music.: Quiet – Loud. Pop – heavy Rock . Urgent guitars – emotional wrought vocals. That is a tough question when you’re trying not to sound like an idiot so let’s stick with Alternative punk rock. We all individually take influences from a wide range of artists from Biffy Clyro, The Police, 30 Seconds to Mars, Muse, Story of the Year, The Cure, Rush, Circa Survive.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: Will and I were in a previous band together which split up. We wanted to start something totally different and auditioned drummers. We found Chas and Mind Museum was born in August 2010

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: We all still have day jobs! Unfortunately that’s the reality of the music business for upcoming bands, I work as manager…. Will designs magazines and Chas works for an IT company…


5. List the first CDs/records each of you bought.: Justin: Guns ‘n’ Roses – Appetite for destruction
Will: Thunder – Back Street Symphony (still love the old school rock!)
Chas: The First CD I remember buying is Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: We can’t wait to just get out on the road properly until the end of the year and get this record heard by as many people as possible.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: I guess we kind of get fan mail through our social networking sites all the time but the best so far is being asked to send a signed photo

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Tends to be a mix of modern and old rock music, such as AC/DC, Story of the year, Motley Crue, Rise Against, I’m really into The Gaslight Anthems stuff so that’s played a fair few times too.

9. What gear do you use?: Justin – I use a Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass & a nameless 70’s Hondo Jazz Bass. Laney RB9 Bass Head and a Boss OS-2 Overdrive Distortion Pedal
Will – Gibson Les Paul Standard & Gibson SG Special. Marshall Amps. Boss DD-20 Delay is the main pedal I use
Chas – DW drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Gibraltar hardware

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: We haven’t been on tour yet so we will get back to you on this one…. We have had some funny nights playing the odd show though.

11. What do you demand on your rider?: Ha! What Rider! Right now we’re not that bothered about riders full of booze and snacks. We would just be happy with covering our fuel costs and making sure new people hear our music

12. What’s your website?:
