It’s the fastest interview in the west. 140 characters and not a keystroke more. Let your digits do the talking
Who are you and what do you do?
@MattMureMusic Watford-born songwriter-musician. Been in various bands and solo. Now venturing out with my new band under my own name!
So you’re calling yourselves Matt Muré? When you put it like that it sounds rather egotistical!
It’s more me and my songs with a great band making great sounds!
Tina Turner had the Ikettes and Buddy Holly had the Crickets. Don’t you think you should have the Mattettes? Or the Mattresses?
I imagine the guys would love the Mattettes. They’d have to wear those cool 60s dresses and heels for gigs though!
What do you sound like?
It’s been said part rock, part folk, hooky and full of energy, but it’s for the audience to decide. Zigfrtid von Underbelly said we had the growl of Howlin Wolf!
Who has influenced your music?
Sonically I started with the 60’s and never stopped listening. More recently a lot of The 1975, TheTricks, Black Keys...
How did y’all meet?
At the Troubadour supporting Misty Miller. A friend knew this crazy Italian drummer and Aussy bassist. It clicked from day one.
Who is the best looking member of the band?
What a question - Come to one of our gigs and decide for yourself! Beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder....
Is this the real life or is it just fantasy?
I think it’s caught in a landslide, but with escapes from reality??
Tell me about the new EP
It’s going to be a killer little 3/4 track EP featuring some high energy hook laden rock fused pop sounds.
You’ve supported Dirty Pretty Things, who would win in a fight between them and The Libertines?
My money’s on DPT!
What’s on your rider?
Spiced Rum, limes, fruit, blue Smarties minus the chocolate centre and loads of H20.
I wish I was little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat... what do you wish?
Health, happiness and goodwill for all mankind. Filling venues and tours with sold out dates wouldn’t go amiss either, genie.
What’s the best thing about Watford?
It’s got great parks? Nice cats? Yeah it’s the cats. Come to Watford – we’ve got great cats!!
Where will @MattMureMusic be in ten years?
Wherever in the world I can play and people will listen. Hopefully touring the world, recording the next album or writing.
If Superman is so smart why does he wear his underpants over his trousers?
Since when is that not smart?
And finally... where can we hear you?
