Tweet-tWOo: Twitter interview with Superfood
Who are you and what do you do? @superfoodjunk
I play guitar and sing in Superfood. My name is Dom. We've been involved in the music scene in brum for the last 4-5 years now.
What's with the name? Are you all a combination of fruits and nuts, here to here to help us fight the flab and live longer?
The first song we wrote was called superfood so after using a few different names we just decided to use that. There's no underlying message to keep people fit and healthy. My favorite food is pickled onion monster munch.
How did y'all meet?
Interesting one. We all just know each other through mates of mates and used to club together at a place called the rainbow...
What do you sound like?
You could say we're still 'discovering our sound' but if you had to make us pin down the demos are a kind of mix of hip-hop breaks and beats with pretty songs over the top.
Who/what has influenced your music?
E.L.O/The Turtles/Beastie Boys. We've always just let what comes out of heads/mouths happen and never force it.
Is it all sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll?
Is it easier to pick up dates when you‘re in a band?
We all have boyfriends/girlfriends so i'm not sure.
Who is the brains of the operation?
Me and ryan write the songs, carl and emily are the braun.
Is braun a word?
I'll ask the questions. Who's the best looking member of the band?
Right-o. Carl? Ryan? Emily? Me?
How many roads must a man walk down, before you call him a man?
The A449 between Kidderminster and Wolvo is pretty tricky to navigate in the dark. That one deserves the man title.
Cadbury's creme egg. How do you eat yours?
If you only had £100 between all of you and one day to live what would you do?
If traveling home to spend time with people we actually cared about wasn't an option I guess we'd have to just hit the pub.
What‘s the most embarrassing thing to have happened to you on stage?
Ryan downed a lava lamp once and I felt really embarrassed and inadequate next to him for the rest of the gig. Show off.
What's on your rider?
We don't have one at the moment normally wangle some beers and water.
You're playing in St Albans soon (The Horn, Sept 17th). What do you know about the city?
Other than St. Alban was the 1st Christian martyr and was beheaded in AD 308 not very much. Isn't it also original birth place of jabba the hut? Is it also home to the world's first double decker petrol station?
Are we human, or are we dancers?
Why should we come to St Albans to hear you play?
Because we've never been before and we need people there to show us the ropes. And to hear 45 mins of magic.
Where do you see @superfoodjunk in 10 years?
Wandering down the a449 with a can of cider, or flip side, on the new and improved TOTP.
And finally @superfoodjunk ...where can we hear you?
We have two demos up on http://soundcloud.com/superfood, new tracks coming in the coming weeks.
