When I interview bands I always ask them what music they’ve been listening to – it’s usually so that I get an insight into their tastes and influences but also a good way to discover some new music. Sadly, the answers rarely find a place in the final interview. But I figured if I enjoyed knowing what bands bands listened to then so might you. So here we are with the first in a new feature on The Spoonster Spouts where I pick tracks by bands mentioned by bands and share them with you. Get it?
First up are lovely Swindon kaleidoscopic popsters Super Squarecloud who I interviewed for Spindle Magazine earlier this year. They offer up some seriously tasty acts to kick things off.
Who’s in Super Squareloud:
Jo Ford (Vocals) James Maynard (Guitar) Joseph Critchley (Bass) Owen Phillips (Percussion)
A Zap lolly in the sunshine: French pop, Deerhoof and post-grunge melting delightfully.
Bands that the band listen to:
Holy Fuck – Lovely Allen
Grimes – Oblivion
Shugo Tokumaru – Katachi
Quack Quack – Cut Me Some Slacks
Malcolm Catto – Rock
