Welcome to the Spiral Lounge.
From the cultural wasteland halfway between Manchester and Liverpool known as Wigan...
Why this name?
I was looking for something that sounded as cool as "18th St Lounge" and got the Spiral part from an obscure easy lstening track by The Harry Roach Constalation. I later groaned when I discoved Spiral Lounge is a rather famous club in America - so much for originality!
Do you play live?
Good God no!
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
How else could people listen to Spiral Lounge and Plastic Trash?
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I'd be dubious and scared, but if Grand Central smiled in my direction, they may be able to twist my arm...
Band History:
I started making music a few years ago on simple loop sequencers and things have plodded along since then. My equiptment may not have changed much over the years, but my music has progressed into a downtempo / chillout / hip hop / trip hop type sound with the odd experiment with Pornogroove.
I started a side project summer 2003 called Plastic Trash with is basically me with either guest artists or in remix mode.
Your influences?
St Etienne, Rae & Christian, Aim (and most of the Grand Central roster!), Propaganda, Altered Images, The B-52's, Japan, Ooberman, Bacharach & David, Blaxploitation soundtracks and dusty old Studio 2 Stereo compilation LPs...
Favorite spot?
I have a soft spot for Manchester, am growing to enjoy Liverpool, but still reckon you can't beat the buzz of Soho at night!
Equipment used:
Simple Loop based sequencers, a bucket full of loops. Just bought a keyboard, but yet to aply it to my tracks.
