60 Seconds With… Kingswood


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

Kingswood. Mango Hunter. Bass

W hat do you reckon people will say you sound like?

A lot of comparisons with Todd Rundgren, Bon Jovi and Luke McPharlin.

What do you love about making music?

Telling people that you think the song they have written is shit.


What do you hate about the music industry?

The music industry is great! We love paying venues to play a show.


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

Nina Simone. Like myself, she was an avid teaspoon collector. I have around 61 teaspoons that I have collected from various locations over the years. She would probably hate our music.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?

Delta Goodrem, the homewrecker! Karry Katona did not deserve that!


What can a punter expect from your live show?

Todd Rundgreen-inspired Bon Jovi-esque pub rock with loads of old creepy guys reminiscing about the band they used to be in and how they should have made it.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

Our debut EP Yeah Go Die is out now, available at all good record shops and on iTunes.

When’s the gig and with who?

Saturday December 17 at The Vineyard in St Kilda and New Years Eve, Saturday December 31 at The Espy in St Kilda.
