60 Seconds With… The Millionaires


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
The name of the band is The Millionaires, and I, Jordan Cade, sing and play the gitfiddle.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
We usually get compared to mainstream bands like Eve 6, Greenday, and Lit.

What do you love about making music?
I love making music because it’s fun, and it’s great to perform in front of a crowd. It’s also nice when you get told about how your music makes other people feel.

What do you hate about the music industry?
I absolutely hate the mainstream music industry. It’s filled with contrived bullshit just chasing the almighty dollar (refer to my assassination answer!). What ever happened to doing it for the love? Where’s The Love!?

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
I’d travel back in time and visit George Harrison. I probably wouldn’t show him anything,
I would just learn about his guitar sounds, and song structures. You should never stop learning.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?
I would assassinate Nicki Minaj. People should never mistake lack of talent for genius.

What can a punter expect from your live show?
Expect a tight, high energy show. Lots of sweat. Big sound. An awesome drummer on a fluffy red drum kit, and a solid bass player with funny looking shoes.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
We have two demo albums, which we’ve recently rolled into one little love bundle. We’ll have a boatload to sell on the night.

When’s the gig and with who?
Gig is Saturday March 3, at The Evelyn, with Tantalum (featuring Sally Chatfield) and Glitch.
