60 Seconds With… Drifter


Define your genre in five words or less:

Degenerative rock.


When and why did you start writing music?

When I was 16 I was too lazy to learn other people’s songs!


What inspires or has influenced your music the most?

Being a teenager in the ‘90s, and catching the train to see bands like the Meanies, Magic Dirt, Tumbleweed and Spiderbait.


Describe the best gig you ever played.

It was Thursday night at the Prague. We put on a bloody good show to one lucky punter and the bar staff.


Describe the worst gig you have ever played.

Shepparton. A Friday night, Dave and I (Dan) were heavily distorted well before reaching Yahoo Bar, so as you could guess, played like shit. That night I fell from the hotel roof and walked away!


Which band would you most like to have a battle/showdown with?

One Direction.


Do you have any record releases to date? What are they? Where can I get them?

We have just released our debut EP HEAD. We are launching this at the Old Bar on Friday May 4, with River of Snakes, Inedia, and Motherslug. You can get HEAD at the gig, or a t-shirt or you can come back to my place and get one there.
