This weeks album of the week is the 2011 offering from Essex boys Missing Andy. They are a Mod influenced alternative rock band that have so far released four albums , this being the second of them. Having interviewed the guys and watching them do their stuff at Brentwood Festival 2014 i can say that they are massively entertaining and lyrical magicians. Check out the album review below and make sure to give me your thoughts.

Generation Silenced

generation silenced

Alive

The ska influence here is obvious the opening tune to the song gives that much away , vocals are spot on and to be fair the rest of the band are playing their part too. The only thing that i would say that is missing that special ingredient , while that may be unfair as the song is great its not quite there .

EPD Light-7468

Track 1: Live Again

The song starts powerful , backed by the opening drums and guitar . The lyrics get better and better as the songs goes on , the clash between the guitar and the early lyrics may need a look at but overall a good song and a strong start to the EP.

Track 2: Bad Girl

I love the guitar at the start , and the song seems to fit much better than Live Again. Bass keeps…

Blood Youth ( Interview Download 2015)

BY Promo 1

Q)You parted ways with your old vocalist and changed your name to Blood Youth ( From Climates) what was the reason for this and how has new vocalist “Kaya Tarsus” fitted in ?

A)We all felt that Climates had ran its course.  The music we were writing was very different and we just wanted a fresh start. Kaya was a good friend of Chris’s and Blood Youth ended up happening really fast. Its been amazing so far and its all sort of fitting into place! 

Q)You have to choose between £1,000,000 or headlining download festival , which one do you pick and why ?

A)Headlining download festival for sure. It’s an experience that money just couldn’t buy. Thats probably the generic answer for everyone but it really is the only choice here.

Q)If you could describe yourselves in three words each what would they be ?

A)Riffs. Madness. Saft. 

Q)Where and when can your fans see you at Download this year ?

A)Jake’s stage at 4:20 on the Friday. Or at the bar anytime after that!

Q)You get the chance to play on stage with another band on this years ( 2015) Download line up , who is it and why ?

A)Every Time I Die. They are my main influence and I owe a lot to their music.

Q)As a band you are from Lincoln is there any bands that was from around you that you looked up to as you was developing the band ?

A)Unfortunately not. The music scene in lincoln doesn’t really exist. Its always been tough growing up here in bands trying to get shows. But i think that struggle just pushed us further to make something of ourselves.

Q)Your new EP is out very soon , what is it called and where can people get their hands on it once it is out ?

A)The EP is called Inside My Head and it can be digitally picked up on Itunes or spotify but physicals you can get through Rude Records. Its up on their store now for pre order. Other than that come see us in June with trash boat and we will have physicals there!

Q)Melodic Hardcore sounds both dangerous and beautiful at the same time , for people that may have not heard bands from this genre what should they expect to hear ?

A)Personally I wouldn’t class us as a melodic hardcore band. I think there are certain elements in our music that suggest that and I think because this band progressed from Climates (a melodic hardcore band) we have sort of carried that with us. We are pretty unsure exactly what sub genre we are meant to fit in.

Q)Simply , pirate or ninja ?

A)Pirate. Pirates have pirate ships and thats badass.

Q)Where did the new band name come from ?

A)We wish there was some sort of deep meaning behind the name but in all honesty its just a couple of words that sounded alright at the time. 

Q)What are your nicknames for each other ?

A)Well, there are quite a few kicking about. Our drummer is now under the name of Pat Mowles, he hates it so we call him it more. Our tour manager is called Witchetty Grub. He basically looked like one one time he was in his sleeping bag. I’ve actually forgot if he has a real name. Chris goes by the name of ‘Spike’ he gels his hair like a kid on a 6th form field trip. Theres a few more but I don’t think we should mention those ones. 

Q)Any last words to fans/ people at download ?

A)Have fun, get wasted and get ready for some riffsssss

Josh Stewart Interview

josh stewart 3

I’ve got a special treat for you readers today. Whether you’re a fan of Criminal Minds, Batman, tv shows about newspapers or even the curious case of Benjamin Button , this interview is for you.

I caught up with the fantastic Josh Stewart for a chat about his acting career , moving into directing and his brilliant Youtube channel!

Q)What made you want to become an actor and how did you start working towards becoming one? 

A)Acting was never one of those things I grew up wanting to be. i, by chance, did a play when I was in college and it just          made sense to me. I loved it. I got it.

Q)Who inspired you the most when you was growing up, and if you could say anything to them what would it be? 

A)My parents played a big role in who I am and who I will be. they’re always in the back of my mind in every situation
 I’m facing. The ways they’ve taught, the things they’ve taught me, I carry them. I’ll never be able to not to. I’d just tell
 them I Love them. That’s enough. 

Q)Before you started your acting career you made sure that you went to college/university to get your degree is business from West Virginia University, would you recommend to other people interested in acting getting a solid education first? And why? 

A)You know, I’d tell people go after whatever it is they love to do and go after it with a fury. There’s no rhyme or reason
 as to how or when opportunities arise, but we better be prepared when it comes.  And how ever you need to prepare
 to be ready, do it.

Josh_stewart

 Q)You moved from West Virginia to New York to study at the T.Schreiber Studios, what was this experience like and how did you find the change of location? 

A)Going from WV to NYC was huge.  Not only geographically speaking, but from a point of growth.  The two couldn’t
 be any further from one another. WV is called the mountain state. So, I grew up running the mountains and playing
 in the river. That was home. NYC is another mountain of wilderness in a completely different way, but I love it. I
 still spend a lot of time there. It was a time in my life when I finally figured out what it was that made sense to me and
 where I wanted to study was NYC.  So, off I went. I loved it. 

west virginia

Q)The majority of your acting work seems to be around the Crime /law enforcement genre is this coincidence or is it an area of life in general that you find interesting. 

A)Completely by chance.

Q)You have been acting now for over 16 years what would you say your biggest achievement is so far? 

A)It’s hard to say.  Each has it’s own special thing that I took from them. Good and bad.

Q)In the dark knight rises you play Barsad the right hand man of the mask loving Bane, growing up was superheroes and comics in your thoughts much and if so which ones were your favourites ? 

A)I wasn’t a comic book guy at all.  My experience with super heroes was strictly on the screen. 

BatmanComicIssue1,1940

Q)If you could have any superpower what would it be? 

A) Telekinesis, for sure.

Q)You played Rupert Ames in the film Law Abiding Citizen, which was received very well. The film itself was inspiring what do you think to the plot to the film and do you think that justice was served? 

A)The film was really fun to do… as far as justice?  I think we hope for justice, but know that many times it falls short. 
 Some from a film perspective, it’s fun to explore taking the law into your own hands.

Q)Who is the best actor/actress you have worked alongside and why? 

A)Tom Hardy is amazing. Gary Oldman.  Casey Affleck…they’re all just people who take you away. 

Q)The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button was a commercial success and you played a character called Pleasant Curtis, in your opinion what was he like and what made him who he was ? 

A)He was a man there to do a job.  He said very little, because he had nothing to say to others.  The dude could talk though
 when no one else was around,though. 

Q)As a character in The curious case of Benjamin button what do you think personally it would be like to go through what the title character has to? 

A)I think it would be the loneliest thing in the world.

Q)You can take the part of another actor in any movie, what is it and why? 

A)No one.  They were meant to have the job. 

Q)You starred alongside Courtney Cox (Formerly of Friends) in the TV show Dirt, what was the show about and how would you describe your character? 

A)The show was really dark. It was the exploration of the underworld of tabloid journalism and all of its dark secrets. 
 Holt was a man that just happened to be caught up in some of those secrets. That exposure almost ended him.

Q)You play Detective William LaMontagne Jr. in the highly successful TV series Criminal Minds, what is it like to be involved in something as big as the show , and when will the fans next be seeing you on it ? 

A)Criminal minds is family. I’ve known them for so long, it’s just great to see them all when their story and my schedule
 allows.

criminal minds js

Q)What do you think to your character on the show? 

A) LaMontagne is just a good ole southern boy who wants to right some wrongs,  and maybe have a bourbon and a
 beer with his lady, too.

Q)On criminal minds you star alongside A.J Cook who plays your onscreen partner Jennifer Jareau (JJ) because of this you two must be comfortable around each other, what is she like ? 

A)AJ is great.  She’s a sweat heart and class act, all the way around. 

js criminal

Q)What would you say is your favourite role so far and why? 

A) They’re all special in some way.  They’re all a piece of me in some way. Even the bad. We all have ghosts and demons
 that go along with the love. 

Q)For anyone looking to get in to the acting business is there any tips you could give or anything you would avoid? 

A) Go after it with a madness. Never stop. Never go home. If you don’t have that attitude, don’t do it. 

Q)What are you keeping yourself busy with at the moment, is there any projects you would like to tell the readers about? 

A) Check out my youtube channel. Gonna start posting some shorts that I make. The first one is a video set to my
 pal, Otis Taylor’s music. Currently prepping for a Mini-­‐series for HBO, Lewis and Clark.

Q)What films are you staring in in the next couple of years and which ones should viewers really be looking out for? 

A) Check out Disney’s, THE FINEST HOURS, COLD MOON, and an untitled film by, Mario Sorrenti. 

Q)You have two children which role do you think when they are old enough to watch your programs/films do you think that they will be most proud of their dad for? 

A) you know, Batman is cinematic history.  It’s Nolan, it’s the whole thing. But there’s definitely indie films like BENEATH
 THE DARK, that im really proud of. I guess it’s like anything, any every film I’ve done, they’re gonna touch people in
 different ways. Some people will love them, some won’t, and I’m ok with that. 

js batman

Q)List your 3 favourite songs and explain what they mean to you? 

A) I’m not sure i have 3 favorite songs.  There’s certain songs, artists that hit me just right. I’m big into all of Otis Taylor.
  Heart of Gold by Neil Young has always been up there for me. That song hits me.

A) The Hunted was actually something that happened to me and my best friend in college. If you pick up the dvd or download, you get the account of the true story in there… 

HUNTEDSTEWART1

Q)Is directing something that you see yourself doing more of, if so what genres do you think you would work in? 

A) writing and Directing is something that I have to do. It’s something I’ve always been interested in. and for me, it’s just about doing anything that hits me in the heart. No matter the genre. 

Q)Is there anything else you would like to say to your fans? Or anything else you would like to inform us of?

Evil Scarecrow ( Interview Download 2015)

ES2014-small (1)

Q)You’re called Evil Scarecrow, but who out of the band is the most evil or plays the most pranks on the rest of you?

A)Good question. I imagine that Kraven is often the butt of most jokes. He is a little like Jason Newstead. He’s been in the band eight years but we still tell our producer to turn him down wherever he can. I am the most evil though because I am the most talentless and I have to have a sort of accolade in the band.

Q)From Nottingham you can get anywhere in the country, does this make it easier or much harder when you decide to go on tour?

A) For many years we toured mostly the North and Midlands of England as it was easier and we got quite a good following throughout all the ex-mining towns around here. Then when we decided to play further south we had to stick a load of dates together in order to make it worthwhile. That got more difficult, but it is certainly the way forward. Up until then we used to drive for hours, play a gig and then drive back. Touring makes everything a lot easier… sort of.

Q)Being local to Download must mean you hear the buzz about it when it’s nearly time to go. But what does the festival mean to you?

A)I have been to a lot of Downloads and worked on the second stage for the past five years so I am very close to Download Festival. As a spotty youth I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be playing there although it was always an aspiration. It is most excellent that it has now happened. Onwards and upwards!

Q)You have two sentences to sum up your career so far, what are they?

A)Initially, it was a silly joke between friends that turned into a lot more work, but a lot more rewarding. Also good. That’s two sentences right? I have used two full stops. Well now three. Oops, another one. I’ll stop now.

Q)Before you go on stage what do you guys to do get yourself ready to rock?

A)Put on our make up and get dressed. Sometimes I like to do ten press ups and a leg stretch or two, but only because I saw Jon Bon Jovi do it on the Dead Or Alive video. I don’t know why he does it. I just want to be more like him.

Q)Name three of your songs and explain why you think they are your best work?

A)Three?! This is more like an exam than an interview. “Name three aspects of Romeo and Juliet that convey tragic themes within the play and give reasons for your answers”. That’s what this question looks like to me! I became a rockstar to avoid questions like this! What is the world coming to? I’ll give you an answer… ME! Yeah, that’s right. I’m the coolest dude here. And I am the best because I rock harder than a captive zoo animal with psychological problems! That was basically the thrust of your question yeah? Good.

Q)You can cover any song by any of the other bands playing at this year’s Download Festival, which bands song and which song is it that you cover?

a)Love Gun – Kiss. I imagine it’s about the male… ahem… part.

Q)You have all given yourselves new names for while you are members of the band, but if I wanted to join what would my name be?

A)Well, one rule of Scarecrow is that you have to choose your own name. We can’t break the rules now can we? This isn’t chuffing North Korea. Although your stage name would probably be “Bric-à-brac McWordsmith”, unless you can think of a better name before next band practice.


Q)You have five minutes before the end of the world, what food would you eat?

A) I would like a lovely gin Pot Noodle. That is a Pot Noodle made with Gin (boiled) instead of water. Although, by the time the gin kettle had boiled, then the gin poured onto the Pot Noodle, stir… wait two minutes… stir again… add the Soya Sauce… wait for it to cool… I would be dead. Probably for the best really.

Q)Simply .. Pirate or Ninja ?

A)Pirate please. I had a ninja for breakfast and it’s repeating on me. Can I have a cup of tea to dunk him in?

Q)What would you like to say to your fans?
A)Chin up! It’s not all bad! No, I jest. I would actually like to say thank you very much. I know it’s clichéd but only with you guys giving us support and coming to our shows and getting what we’re all about, can we continue this stupid journey of ridiculousness. It’s great and I want to be doing it for at least another 37 to 45 years. x

September Mourning ( Interview Download 2015)

PR Photo #2

Q)The band has been said to have a very theatrical stage presence, was this something you always intended or did it just happen? 

A)It was always the intention. September Mourning is a musical storyline played out on a stage: the character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. We embody the characters-the reapers-of the comic book by the same name. We are theatrical with a purpose, a fresh approach for music. Let us take you to our world….  

Q)For people who may not understand what “Alternative Hard Rock” is could you please sum it up in five words? 

A)Melodic, dramatic, heavy, textural, story-driven 

Q)You are playing Download 2015, where and when can people catch you?

A)On the Maverick stage at 12pm 

Q)What would you say was your greatest piece of work so far?

A)Creating this art project as a whole from scratch.

Q)September Mourning is not only a brilliant band, it is also involved in many other industries, and can you explain to my readers what these are? 

A)As I stated previously, this is a story driven band. We have a comic book coming out through Marc Silvestri/Top Cow Comics this fall, along with our videos/shows that will also perpetuate the storyline. Other media aspects will be following,all to enhance the world we are building. 

Q)Emily (Emily Lazar), what made you choose the stage name September?

A)The story requires a character with a haunting name and September Mourning evokes that.

Q)Who on the download bill this year would you like to play on stage with?

A)We feel honored to share the stage with all the bands who will play on the Maverick stage this year. Each one of them brings something unique musically.

Q)If you could have any song in the world that’s been made by another band, what song would it be and why + how would you make it your own? 

A)We chose the song Stand By Me recently to cover as its hauntingly dark lyrics made it an appropriate choice for our story. We changed the tempo and time signature and gave it more of a death march feel. I think we truly made it our own. You can listen to it on our Youtube page (www.youtube.com/theseptembermourning).

Q)You signed with Virgin records in 2013 what was that feeling like? 

A)Awesome. 

Q)What would you say to get people to come and check you out at this year’s download?

A)If you want to take a journey away from the world you live in, if you love music that moves you physically, emotionally, if you want inspiration and have an imagination, be prepared for us to collect your soul.

Q)Is there anything you would like to say to your fans? 

A)Our thanks to everyone that is responsible for making Download possible, from the crew to the bands to the agents to the press to the fans and everyone in between. Let’s make this the best one ever!

American Fangs ( Interview Download 2015)

american_fangs

 

Q)You’re from Houston Texas, what bands from the area did you admire while growing up ? 

A)Houston has always had an eclectic mix of really excellent music spanning Rock to Rap to Soul to Latin and beyond. I wouldn’t be able to name any bands you’d recognize, but the scene itself has always been something we all admire and support greatly. 

Q)What five words would you use to describe the band ?

A)Raw, High Energy, Rock and Roll.

Q)You have been on tour with some big bands , which tour has been your favourite so far , and who else have you toured with so far ? 

A)We’ve been very fortunate to hit the road with some really awesome bands over the years: Chevelle, Papa Roach, Four Year Strong, Story of the Year, etc…but the most dope string of dates we did was a small Texas run supporting Deftones. We grew up idolizing that band, so being able to share the stage & now call them friends…the best!

Q)You have performed at many festivals so far , which has been your favourite so far and are you looking forward to Download 2015 ?

A)Carolina Rebellion & Rock On The Range rival each other as the coolest US festivals we’ve done. Free Press Summer Fest in Houston is super legit too though! But Download, holy shit dude, it’s gonna rule so hard!! Can’t wait!

Q)When and where can people catch you at Download 2015 ?

A)We are on Stage 4 from 6-6:25…come sweat with us!

Q)Whats the most important thing for the band before a show ?

A)Stretching & getting loose! We leave it all on the stage, so if we aren’t properly warmed up then it’s a formula for being sore the next day. 

Q)The band goes out for food what type of restaurant do you go to ?

A)We’re pretty easy in the food department, so we are usually looking for anything that non-fast food but sometimes ya just need a healthy dose of grease.

Q)Who else at download will you be keeping your eyes on ? 

A)SLIPKNOT cherry is getting popped, f*ckin right! Also looking forward to Clutch, The One Hundred, Black Stone Cherry, and Young Guns.

Q)Your LP “Dirty Legs” comes out  4th of July , how excited about it are you , and is it your best work so far ?

A)We’re really excited to get this album out! It’s a much more raw side of ourselves, which is who we wanted to be from day one. Feels nice to get back to our roots & bang out!!

Q)What would you say your best song is so far?

A)On ‘Dirty Legs’, “We Stand Apart” is my personal fav. It’s the very last song we wrote to add to the album & it’s a true representation of who this band is from start to finish.

Q)Do you guys record the entire song together or do you split different parts of the recording into different sections ?

A)We recorded this album in pieces over time. Did the majority of the record with Machine but also recorded some songs locally in Houston with long time good friend (and former band member) Jerry Nettles, as well as local Houston producer & engineer Michael Thompson. 

Q)What would you like to say to get people to come and see you at download ? 

Anyone looking for 25 full minutes of going as hard as humanly possible, come turn up with your boys from Texas!
