60 Seconds With… Sub Atari Knives


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

Sub Atari Knives. I am one third of a collective that combines organic drums, bass and vocals with electronic sounds. I do all of the above.

What do you reckon people will say you sound like?

We have only done three shows to date but so far “new Prodigy” has come up a lot.

What do you love about making music?

Everything! It IS the love of my life. What’s not to love? It truly is the highest art form.

What do you hate about the music industry?

The term “music industry” is an oxymoron and an offensive one. Too many things to hate about it but not enough interest to give it any time discussing.

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

I wouldn’t. I find it hard showing my closest friends and even my bands mates sometimes!

What can a punter expect from your live show?

An honest, positive, high energy, no bullshit, dance-inducing smashfest!

When’s the gig and with who?

Saturday February 18 at Rock The Bay at The Espy with Dead Letter Circus, Floating Me and a whole bunch of homegrown talent too numerous to mention.

Anything else to add?

Go start a band…
