BBC Webteam Interview Andrew
Every week we'll be interrogating one of our favourite musos to get to the bottom of their tireless creativity. This week it's Andrew, from Jetplane Landing.
Andrew, from Jetplane Landing. Two of us are from Derry and the other two Jamie and Raife are from London.
Someone heard us rehearse and said ‘Jesus lads you boys sound like a jet plane landing’. If we’re anything we’re loud. That and a story about At The Drive-In.
Raife would have to move over for Mr Grohl on drums, Jamie could be replaced by Geddy Lee and Cahir by Bruce Lee.
'H' from Steps - send him back to wherever he came from.
The best thing about being in Jetplane Landing is meeting the people we meet after shows and on tour. Our fans are the best.
'Thunderstruck' by AC/DC – it doesn’t get any better than that.
Jetplane Landing is a strange band in that, we recorded ‘Zero for Conduct’ before we ever played a show. The first night was in Auntie Annies’s Belfast supporting Czech band Sunshine. My nerves were awful, I forgot the first line of the first song – I remember thinking ‘this is going to be interesting!’
‘Mary’ by The Four of Us. They were big in Ireland. Closely followed by 'Kick' by INXS. Sorry.
Badmotorfinger – Soundgarden. I like that Sugababes song on the radio. That’s good.
Ascending - Ring. - ZZZZ.
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at the Brixton Academy – I crave the taste of blood.
I like the Astoria in London – cos it was the first big show we ever did. I remember standing backstage thinking – 'that’s a lot of people, don’t mess up'.
We get what we’re given – the best thing to get is an assortment of penny sweets. I like the white mice and flying saucers.
I couldn’t possibly say….
Watching the final of Stars in Their Eyes – I reckon I could do Fergal Sharkey or Peter Cunnah from D:ream.
Does my bum look big in this?
No. You look fine.
